Mosaic Workshop, 2013
Instructor: Abdel Hamid Spahi
Mosaic is one of the oldest and most precious forms of art. Till date, it remains one of the best ways to create surfaces that are enduring, colorful and expressive. In this workshop, learn how to make your own mosaic. Learn how to design your pattern and how to handle the mosaic tools. Choose from materials such as ceramic tiles, porcelain, glass beads and nuggets, mirrors, shells and natural stone. Combine, cut and glue it all to a unique work of art. At the end learn how to preserve your work through grouting. The objective is to teach you the basic skills for creating a mosaic image on a plane piece of wood. All basic materials and substances are included in the fee. If you prefer to turn your mosaic into a 3D-object, such as a piece of pottery, or if you want to combine special mosaic materials such as gold tiles or Venetian Smalti, these options come with extra cost. At the end of the last session, all pieces are displayed in an exhibition.
