Enrol in Mosaics with Slate & Pebbles
Course Code: ARTS2502
There is something very special about working with materials from nature. Experience this as you complete a small mosaic, becoming familiar with the adhesives, the stone and the substrate. Progress to a large, ungrouted mosaic for outdoors, utilising stone, stone tile and pebbles. Learn how to cut materials (sometimes to expose the hidden beauty of the stone's inside) and how to position stone to produce a mosaic that gives the content its own unique 'voice'. Working on a substrate of Wediboard, a lightweight material suitable for the Canadian outdoors, you will be encouraged to utilise a simple design that enables the materials themselves to create interest. Instruction will include which substrates to use for outdoors, how to prepare them for mosaic, working with adhesives for outdoors, cutting techniques for a variety of materials, and how to care for your artwork.
