"TEXTURE & LIGHT"
9am-5pm (with breaks)
Thurs 29th & Fri 30th August
Marian Shapiro makes original, hand-crafted, contemporary mosaic pieces using traditional
techniques. Originally trained in art and theatre, she became fascinated by the possibilities of this ancient art and has been a full-time mosaicist since 2003.
This masterclass looks at creating visually exciting modern mosaic pieces using the direct method. Marian will look at the possibilities of working with texture, colour and light by exploring different styles of laying the pieces, and or/mosaic mixed media. Marian is based in NSW and with her husband David runs Smalti Australia, www.smaltiaustralia.com.au.
ABOUT THIS MASTERCLASS
As this course focuses on texture and light in mosaic, a mix of materials which work differently with light is required; eg. vitreous glass, unglazed ceramic, china, stained glass etc. Materials of different heights are also good for this course.
Participants will work towards a 25cm x 25cm hanging mosaic, suitable for interior or exterior.
This masterclass is intended for those with some mosaic experience who wish to try new things, and bring their work to a new level. This workshop aims to give people ideas, inspirations and techniques to create individual, original and vibrant modern mosaic art. Not suitable for beginners.
