Clay in Mosaics: Tiles & Elements


View class option details »

Clay is the oldest known material in creating mosaic tesserae dating back to 5400 BC in the city of Ur. This 8-week class gives students the opportunity to create unique clay forms and surfaces, hand-formed tiles and elements – all useful and personalized components that can be incorporated into individual mosaic work. Examples of tile making techniques will be demonstrated and students will have the opportunity to experiment with different textural and detailing methods. Basic glazing, firing techniques and an elemental discussion of adhesives and substrates for mosaic applications will be covered.

All materials and firings are included. No prerequisite.

“The Chicago Mosaic School is a place where ideas start flowing, without judgement. I felt welcome and safe. The class exceeded my expectations.” – A.P., Chicago
