Friday & Saturday 10:00-4:00
Did you always want to learn the art of mosaics or learn a new sculptural technique and didn’t know where to start? If so, this workshop is for you! Visiting artist Susan Wechsler shares her tips, techniques and trade secrets on creating her one-of-a kind mosaics. Susan’s dresses can be seen all over the world, whether her creation or those of her students. Use your discarded treasures, learn how to collect and then design with tesserae, and learn how to use Magic Putty to add 3D objects to tell a personal story. Lots of individual attention to ensure everyone creates a keepsake mosaic to proudly hang on your wall. Each student will need to bring personal treasures: found objects, gems, beads, discarded jewelry. Susan will work with students prior to the class to guide you through the process of gathering everything you will need. You’ll have 3 choices from her dress (11”x8” or 11”x 11”) or mask (7”x 6”) design and 3 color choices for the Magic Putty. NO GROUTING - you’ll use Susan’s Magic Putty - it will change the way you think about mosaics. Material fee of $95 paid to the instructor includes either 3 dress substrates, or
a mask as well as new Magic Mosaic Putty in 3 colors.
