Mosaic Andamento Technique
Date: July 15, 2021

I delight in sharing my art talent, creating beautiful glass art and mosaic with you. I have over 40 years of experience to share, on and off of course. I began my craft in traditional stained glass window panels: John La Farge, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Frank Lloyd Wright (FLW)style. I loved the Arts & Crafts movement and the Prairie styles of FLW still popular today. I specialize in teaching contemporary mosaics in my home studio in Erie, Colorado. Thank you for your interest in my work and continuing to explore your own creative talents.

Mosaic Andamento Technique

One Day Workshop

Date: July 15th, 2021

Time: 1 to 5pm

Location: Erie, CO

Cost: $75

 Experience Suggested

Andamento is the visual flow of a mosaic created by arranging the tesserae (small stone, glass, ceramic, or other hard material cut in a cubical shape) in rows and it creates movement as the pieces weave in specific directions.

This is a hands on workshop where students will cut and nip their materials (provided) into specific cubical shapes and experiment on making a flowing design. We will be working in the traditional Italian method of a thinset setting bed, no grout. Students will practice the technique, mix the thinset and make a sample piece.

*** Tools Required***

hand held glass wheeled nipper, tile nipper, tweezers, tooth picks, paint brushes, palette and putty knifes, latex gloves.
