Clay in Mosaics: Tiles & Elements Intensive Workshop
Clay is the oldest known material in creating mosaic tesserae dating back to 5400 BC in the city of Ur. This 3-day workshop 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 opportunities to experiment with different textural and detailing methods. Basic glazing, firing techniques and an elemental discussion of adhesives and substrates for mosaic applications are covered. Students receive handouts and are expected to bring a sketchbook and notebook to each class session.
All materials are included. No prerequisite. This course is also offered as an eight week class.
