In this workshop participants will learn to create a mosaic portrait of their own choosing. Emphasis will be on picassiette, using dishes and pottery (in addition to other materials if desired) to develop texture and pattern within your work.
Students are encouraged to bring some of their own unique finds (dishes, pottery, teacups, etc.) to incorporate into and personalize their works. Part of the joy of picassiette comes from collecting materials. Thrift stores & yard sales finds are perfect, as is clearing out cabinets of chipped, cracked dishes, and those broken bits that you can’t bear to throw away, but would love to incorporated into your art! Bringing extra to share ensures that there will be unique and surprising selections for all.
Registered students will receive a letter from Gila with detailed instructions on selecting an appropriate reference image for the workshop.
Some previous mosaic experience recommended.
