About The Workshop
Curious about or frustrated with cement as a mosaic adhesive?
In this two hour crash course, Seattle based mosaic artist Kelley Knickerbocker will teach you how to effectively mix, apply (bed, backbutter and baggie methods), and maneuver "mud" (cement mortar) to create substrates and strongly hold tesserae of varying heights so that grout isn't needed. As you build a mosaic directly into cement mortar, you'll get a wealth of tips on accentuating mortar as a design element, working cleanly, tinting cement mortar, creating sculptural and undulating effects, creating mud tesserae, and smoothly/texturizing open areas of cement within and around a mosaic design.
If you were unable to secure a spot in her workshops the following days, this is a great intro into the world of using thinset/mortar as an adhesive and design element in your mosaic work!
