Mosaics - Feathers and Fins ~ with Helen Clues
Spend a lovely and inspiring day with Helen creating some beautiful mosaic pieces, using a combination of vintage broken crockery (known as 'picassiette' in the trade) , coloured glass and ceramic tiles.
Helen admits that Birds and fish are one of her favourite subjects for translation into mosaics. Students will be working with a variety of mosaic materials, using the direct method of creating mosaics for interior display.
There will be a choice of projects and during the session you will learn how to plan your design, choose, cut, shape and assemble your piece. The afternoon will be for grouting and polishing to finish your projects. All materials and fixings for hanging finished pieces are provided. During this session students can choose to make up to two projects. You are welcome to bring any crockery of your own to incorporate into your work.
