For people who have some experience with mosaic art, take your work to the next level with this
Master Class. In this workshop, we will explore ways to refine your mosaic work:
create an original abstract mosaic with rich textures and lush materials, utilizing your own pre-
determined color palette. Make a statement and elevate your skills with Andamento (the
direction, shape, and flow of the individual pieces).
Each participant will create a square mosaic (mounted on wood) utilizing a variety of
innovative techniques and premium materials, including smalti, semi-precious stone, marble,
Italian millefiori, and 24K gold tile.
Dianne will provide an introductory slideshow outlining techniques and tips to help you approach
your creative process in new ways. Use some of these techniques to create a one of a kind
original abstract mosaic.
All materials and supplies are included, tools are available for in class use.
*Refunds and credits will only be issued for class postponements and cancellations.
