Hand-Glazed Ceramic & Mosaic
Working from a design template provided by Ricardo, create a mosaic with cut ceramic tile. Begin the week by hand-glazing tiles for use in the background of your mosaic. Material in a selection of rich colors and textures will be provided for the central design. Learn cutting, placement, installation and grouting. Ricardo will showcase concepts, history, and modern techniques developed in his Montreal studio, giving students a wide range of ideas and options. Personalize your piece through color choice, the use of hand-painted tiles, and the shapes and positioning of individual tessere. Experience how making mosaics is a wonderful and accessible way to slow down, express creativity, and exercise dexterity. Open studio time, when possible, is recommended for completion of the project within the timeframe. All levels welcome.
