Workshop Dates: Sat-Sun, July 27-28, 2019
Saturday: 10am-5pm, Sunday: 10am-4pm
Create vibrant, colorful mosaic art for the garden! In this class, learn the basics for exterior and garden mosaics from Jennifer Kuhns, a professional NW mosaic artist with extensive commercial and private exterior mosaic experience.
Lecture will include info on substrates appropriate for exterior use and their preparation, fixatives, setting, grouting and sealing.
This class is great for the beginner as we will be covering tools, cutting techniques, and mosaic design, and is also appropriate for the student who has already experimented with interior or craft mosaics and would like to expand their knowledge to include exterior, garden or permanent installations.
Students will construct a small birdbath from a terracotta pot and base, and adhere glass mosaic in a radiating pattern. Most students will finish grouting the top or bottom during class, and will be sent home with enough grout to complete the rest.
Price includes tuition, materials, use of necessary tools while in class, a simple lunch each day in the studio, and coffee/tea/light snacks. Wheeled nippers (Leponitts) will be available for purchase ($25) if a student wishes to take a pair home; they are provided for use while you are in class.
Class is limited to 12 students.
