DH-09-20 Mosaic Letters with Dave Hanson

MOSAIC LETTERS with Dave Hanson

In this workshop, students will create an eye-popping mosaic letter of their choice. Materials to be explored will include glass, colored mirrors, millefiori, beads, and dichroic glass. The natural curves, sweeps and bends of the letters create a plethora of design opportunities, and these will guide the pattern as students explore the movement in mosaics, and the power of contrasting colors and textures.

The first day of the workshop, Dave Hanson will discuss the basics of creating mosaics and students will create a mosaic using the shape of their letter of choice. On the second day, students will choose their grout color to make their mosaic pop and complete their project.

 

** Please send an email after registering to andie@shemerartcenter.org with your letter of choice at least two weeks prior to the workshop.
