Many of you might already know that alongside running the Studio of Spontaneous Creativity, I am also the Director of the Mosaic Art School of Sydney. Through MASS I run a whole variety of mosaic immersion workshops as well as hosting workshops with visiting artists from around Australia and internationally.
Next weekend, on Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th May, I will be hosting Cetta Pilati, mosaic artist from Melbourne, for a weekend workshop in Sculptural Mosaics.
I wanted to share this exciting workshop with you, because Cetta's attentive and regardful teaching process will offer you both technical and creative techniques on how to integrate Sculpture with the Art of Mosaics.
VISITING ARTIST WORKSHOP:
SCULPTURE & WORKING WITH MOSAICS
In this weekend workshop, Cetta will take you into the wonderful world of sculpture. No prior experience is necessary. She will teach you how to design your sculptural work, make simple and structurally-sound sculptures and bases, and then how to complete the sculpture with the addition of marble mosaics. This will allow you to create many more sculptures on your own at home.
Participants will design and create a 3D substrate (max 40cm height) and plan application of mosaic to sculptural form. You will expand your creative skills to practice traditional placement techniques that require no grouting on a 3D surface.
Sand back your 3D substrate and explore application of mosaic using Cetta’s techniques. We will take a more in-depth look at formation, placement, cutting techniques and limitless proposal for 3D forms. This workshop is designed to guide and inspire you to uncover techniques that will allow expand your creative practice!
