Students will learn about concepts integral to mosaic art, different types of tesserae, andamento (lines between the glass), adhesives, mosaic tools and cutting techniques, substrates and grouting. The benefits of using beads in mosaic art will be highlighted, as will techniques for incorporating beads and objects into your mosaic art.
A small variety of basic vitreous glass tile, stained glass will be provided as fillers/for backgrounds, however participants will be provided links to suppliers of glass and beads to select and purchase, prior to class, unique materials and color schemes to suit their preferences. There will also be a selection of fancy tesserae and beads for sale on site.
