Basic Information

JOY OF MOSAICS – BASIC – 8 week project course

Course Description:

The Joy of Mosaics is a project based course; it introduces the art of translating an image onto a mosaic. As a first step, the student masters the technique of cutting glass tiles into various shapes – the TESSARAE.  This is followed by merging various coloured tessarae and generating a design on a substrate like a wooden board, a tray, a coffee table, etc.  The design is made permanent by grouting it.  The end result forms a rhythmic whole—a mosaic.
