A great start for the enthusiastic mosaic beginner to get a good feel for mosaics across the direct, mesh, mixed media and 3-D techniques! 
Even if you have started to mosaic you will benefit from many of Sandy's tips!
After a 2 year break from teaching, you can image Sandy has come up with some more innovative tips & tricks!
You learn lots of technique in our class to equip you to make fabulous mosaics.  You don't simply chop up tesserae and fill in a pattern.  You finish your mosaic - yes finish and grout!  What is the point of a workshop that doesn't cover it all?

What will you make?
Many mosaic sections to be installed on your project.
PROJECT:
Large mosaic butterfly with uplifted wing, shaped from 30 x 30m Marmox board, with installation hardware.
Design template is provided and you trace it, cut it, edge it and then cover in mosaic segments that cover professional mosaic techniques. It's a stunner!  You will refer back to this mosaic for technique and the project links to the online modules for my students.
Base pattern & design is available during workshop.

Mosaic makers in this class will learn to:

-shape a mosaic substrate from Marmox Light Weight Mosaic Board.
-install the hanging hardware.
-add mesh wrap to the raw Marmopx edges of the base.
-add special effect shaping to the Marmox board.
-sections of mosaic mesh method, indirect method, direct method, 3D. push-in method etc 
-mosaic shaping techniques, including curves, andamento and opus.
-use many mosaic tools! Every student has their own set of tools during the weekend workshop.
-Leponitt wheeled nippers, standard tile nippers, parrot beak nippers, score and snap tools, desk top tile slicer
-DTA wheeled nippers, glass grinder, files and accessories etc!


-use a hammer and hardie desk top set  Great way to find what weight hammer is suitable for you!
-try out so many of Sandy's famous, innovative mosaic tips and tricks.
-create and shape amazing 3D flowers, blooms and foliage from crockery and glass.    
-use mosaic materials (tesserae) including crockery, vitreous mosaic glass tiles, Dynasty smalti, slate, shells, pebbles, stained glass, wire/beads for bling/boings, ceramic tile, mirror, porcelain  tile, wine bottle, glass beads, millefiori, glitter tiles and whatever works!
-use all the glues! Weldbond, Thinset, MAC Glue (if available), Prep Glue, Silicone. 
-render with thinset, tints etc.
-apply curved borders and shape circles and more!
-use Sandy's amazing tips for handling and shaping tesserae.
AND MORE!

-Of course we use Laticrete Australia thinset, grouts and presealer (nothing but the best!).
All students make the same project /pattern/desing, but of course your own style will develop. 
Making the same project allows students to learn so much more, in this weekend workshop, there is not enough time to work in individual patterns.
All students will complete their project in this workshop, including grouted sections.
This workshop is a wonderful blend of the original Workshops A and B. 
Combining into one weekend allows overnight for some sections to set and enables students to get on with making mosaics as they will have all the necessary techniques to blast off with their own projects.

Just book in, you will love this weekend workshop!

Book in, turn up and expect to have a wonderful weekend of mosaic learning, fun and inspiration (and be totally addicted to mosaics).
More info will be provided after you book in and what to wear, bring, times and other special info.

NEW IN 2022!
Students who complete this workshop will have access to The Mosaic Online School modules pertaining to this workshop (strictly for enrolled student use only). BONUS  Students  will have special student access to The Mosaic Online School MOS Members Only Social Club!  It's just awesome.
