Mosaic Workshops with Helen Bodycomb
‘GET A GRIP’ – BEGINNER MOSAICS: 3 DAY WEEKEND
Course fee includes all mosaic materials (vitreous, porcelain and stone, substrates and glue), morning and afternoon teas, lunch Saturday and Sunday; (self-catering and independent finishing of work on Monday).
Helen is the ideal person to start learning mosaic with, as she is an authority on the history and techniques of this versatile art form. Beginning with an illustrated lecture on the origins of mosaic, Helen will help participants ‘Get a Grip’ on some of the options for contemporary practice, exploring both technical and conceptual aspects. She will demonstrate how to cut a wide range of materials including unglazed and glazed ceramic, vitrified glass, sheet glass and stone and introduce ‘thinking in mosaic’. Course participants will make a small work on timber panel to using materials of their choice. Open Access Studio Days for beginners will commence on 24 March, with a special introductory 20% discount for ‘Get a Grip’ participants.
