Tapestry Mosaic Workshop
Elaborate patchwork tapestry fabrics from Rajasthan and Gujarat India inspire this class. Specialty glass (including Van Gogh glass and Italian millefiori), crystal and beads create multiple patterns of color and texture. Materials will be carefully embedded (not glued on as with the standard direct approach) and projects are not grouted. Students are encouraged to bring personal items such as beads, findings, jewelry, and glass pieces for incorporation in to their work. This is a great class for those who have mosaics experience and want to expand their repertoire of techniques and depth of skill. Previous mosaic experience recommended but not essential. Tuition $200 Materials Fee $85 due to instructor by first day of class.
Sat Dec 8 and Sun Dec 9 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Registration Link
