Layered Glass Mosaics: Structure and Form
When: Thursday, March 15, 8am-5pm
Description: Layered Glass technique is about a free flow of tesserae used in layers creating effects of overlap, transparency, and volume. Whether it’s a mosaic depicting vast space, a detail of an animal, or a close-up of a flower, your artwork will surely have an extra dimension added to it. You will create a visual feast for the viewer! Step into infinity - even after the last tessera fills the base layer there are many more to be placed on top in intricate structures and overlaps. This workshop starts with a slide presentation on layered mosaics and a demo. Hands-on part concentrates on technical and optical effects produced with this technique. Individual instruction is supplemented with demos on selecting a color palette, cutting Yulia’s signature brush-stroke (boat) tesserae, and structural variations in layering. All the participants must bring: wheeled cutter, tweezers, eye protection (eye glasses work well), pencil, pen, one flat plastic lid. Glass, adhesives, substrates, handouts, and other supplies will be provided. Images will be provided by the instructor.
Note: this workshop is only available for registered SAMA members.
