3D Mosaics at Home (six-session workshop)

This class will focus on the special challenges that making three-dimensional mosaics pose. We will cover the finding or making of suitable 3D mosaic substrates and then move on to covering these forms. Each class member will receive a special sample box of materials that can be used for experimentation and to jumpstart their projects. The class is open-ended and the making of either a single object or a series of smaller experiments is up to the individual and will be supported by the instructor.

Your instructor will also provide lots of useful information about historical and contemporary mosaic works, along with where to source materials and specialized tools, for your specific projects.

Special notes:
This is an online class hosted through Zoom. We recommend that you download the free Zoom application on your computer, phone, or tablet in advance of the first class. You will receive a confirmation email containing a link to join the course via Zoom. The same link will be used each week.
