This two session beginning mosaic class covers the different types of materials used to create mosaics as well as adhesives, bases, and grouting.  We will learn to use the tools, select the materials, and where to purchase what is needed to create a mosaic. Creating a simple trivet out of glass tiles and gems allow students to focus on learning basic mosaic techniques.  The project will teach skills such as cutting tile, different approaches to applying tile, and selecting grout. On day 1, we design the mosaic and adhere the design to the base, and on day 2 we grout and complete the project. At the end of the class you will have the knowledge to create simple mosaic projects on your own as well as a mosaic trivet.

There is an additional materials fee of $30 which will be added to the cost of class when you register.

Instructor: Gillian Allard first fell in love with mosaics in Barcelona’s Park Güell after seeing the work of Anton Gaudi. Her first art pieces were stepping stones. She then progressed to furniture and signs. Most of her work is inspired by discarded or broken dishes that become one-of-a-kind functional pieces for the garden and home.  In addition to china, pottery and stoneware, a variety of glass tile and gems, broken tile and found objects are incorporated into her designs.  The breaking of the ceramics is organic and random in nature and one of her goals is to capture that energy.  Recreating memories reusing materials are an important part of her mosaic work.  When someone gives me a broken dish and I can give it back to them recreated and ready to function again, I have united the best elements of this art form.
