Introduction to Mosaics workshop @ Falmouth Art Center
When: Sat Apr 26th
9:30 am - 4:00 pm
Where: 137 Gifford Street
This two-day workshop on Saturday and Sunday is ideal for the beginner with little or no experience. Students will gain the skills to create and finish a lovely piece of art to display in the home. The student will learn to cut, shape and grind stained glass. Stained glass comes in multiple shades and variations. It can be cut with little hand strength when you learn a few tricks. A grinder is often used to smooth off edges and to make a piece fit snugly.
Students will gain an understanding of the tools, adhesives and materials that are used to create mosaics for interior and exterior uses. Opus Sectile, an art technique popularized in the ancient and medieval Roman World will be taught as well as the traditional Opus tessellatum style of cutting. The knowledge gained during this workshop will then allow students to go further in their mosaic journey.
cost is $50, plus a $15 supply fee. More information at 774-521-8408.
