MOSAIC COURSES

You will produce either:
• a mirror (a 35X35cm frame)
• or a round table-top (60cm diameter)
• or a picture (the dimensions can be up to 0.3m2)

You will work on:
• Graphics and colour
• Cutting (glass nippers, tile cutters), and setting of glass tiles, glazed and unglazed tiles, mirrors and “emaux de Briare”
• Cement grouting (from narrow to very wide and pigment colouring)

All materials are provided by the workshop. Just bring an apron or wear clothes that don’t matter.

In the beginner’s course, the mosaic is glued directly to the chipboard base.

In the advanced course, the mosaic is not glued directly to the base but is fixed to a mesh base beforehand. This method is suitable for more complicated designs.

I leave my students free to choose their own style of mosaic. I just supply the materials. You will produce a mosaic based on your own taste, sensibility and creativity. There are models to guide you or you could bring your own documentation (drawings, photos, magazine articles etc).

Here are some examples of work produces by students :
