Shrine Mosaics with Tami Macala
July 11th & 12th
Saturday 10a-5p and Sunday 10a-4p

Fee $225.00 + $40.00 materials fee

In this fun and creative workshop you will start with a shrine substrate ready to create your mosaic on. Working for two days using a variety of materials you will learn which are best for an interior or exterior environment depending where you choose to display your shrine. We will also go over the best adhesive depending on materials and your display choice. Learning these options can make for more successful mosaic projects in the future. Each student will be provided a pre-made shrine with the hanging hardware installed. This is a great workshop for a beginner or someone with mosaic experience. There will be a grouting demo on day two.  Students are encouraged to bring any sentimental or found objects they would like to incorporate into their shrine project.

Impressionism in Mosaic Art using Stained Glass
with Carol Shelkin
Sept. 12th & 13th, 2020 
Saturday 10a-5p & Sunday 10a-5p

This 2-day workshop Carol starts you off with a beautiful presentation on works from the Impressionism era. She will explain how these artists used specific paint colors to create illusions in their work and if you stand back while viewing them you will see how it worked.

Next she will start students off with a lesson on her specialized technique of creating an “under painting.” This will act as a blueprint for creating the mosaic. Carol will give in-depth lessons on how to transfer the design to the best substrate, choosing the best glass colors for each section of the mosaics as well as her unique cutting technique that make it possible to not grout your mosaic. Most students leave Carol’s workshops feeling they just got an entire semester of art school in two days. Carol is an amazing teacher with so much to offer including each student receives a private 10 minute consultation at the end of the workshop. Don’t expect to finish your piece in the workshop but Carol will make sure you leave with all the information and confidence to continue as well as all the necessary glass to complete your piece.
Fee $395.00 + $50.00 Materials fee

5 Day Workshop with Dino Maccini
Sept. 16th-20th
Wednesday-Sunday 9:30-4:30 all days

In this workshop participants will explore the intersection of different andamenti in both form and color. Each participant will be working on one of two models: two intersecting circles, or a layered sheets effect. The layered sheets method explores transparency, while the circles model focuses on the merging of movement. Students will be able choose to work in all marble or a smalti-marble mix, and select a color scheme from a limited palette after registering. Gold smalti will be available for purchase at additional cost, or you are welcome to bring your own. Please note: On the green-colored layers image, you see a light coming through. Dino’s original design is a wall lamp worked over a very thin substrate. For this workshop we will be using polystyrene as our substrate that will not allow for any transparency. We will be working with hammer and hardie, but no experience is necessary — Dino will give a short demonstration, and help you along the way. If you prefer to work with nippers, that is fine, but we don’t recommend cutting marble with them. If you own a hammer and hardie and can travel with it you will be asked to bring it.

There are 4 Spots left for this workshop. If it is cancelled due to travel restrictions for Dino full refunds will be honored. If you choose to cancel after the final balance due date there will be no refunds.
PLEASE EMAIL TO REGISTER FOR THIS WORKSHOP. THERE IS A $250.00 DEPOSIT DUE NOW. THIS WILL GO UP AS WE GET CLOSER TO THE WORKSHOP.
Fee $1200.00 (including most materials)
