About The Workshop

We are excited to host Seattle based mosaic artist Kelley Knickerbocker for a double header November 2/3rd and 4/5th. 

This workshop, The Shape of Things is Thursday/Friday 10am-5pm.

Deciding what your design elements will be and how to arrange them can be the most difficult aspects of beginning an abstract mosaic. Constructing, deconstructing and reconstructing simple shapes is a fun, easy way to use up scraps and combine materials to for the building blocks or targets of an intuitive abstract composition, or to build a unique signature block. Setting directly into mortar, students will create a variety of building blocks, arrange them into a composition, and then build a mosaic around and through them. Instruction will be via slide show, handouts, demos, discussion, exercises, hands-on building, one-on-one guidance and critique.

Cost for this workshop is $395 ($345 if you also register for the Saturday/Sunday workshop Shard Logic) 

We are also offering an abbreviated version of Kelley's Mastering Mud workshop on Wednesday evening from 6-8pm for participating students who are new to using thinset and would like a more in-depth tutorial on working with thinset as an adhesive and design element. Cost is $40.
