About the event
3 Day Workshop with Guest Instructor Donna Van Hooser of SunDog Mosaics
In this class, we will select glass colors using greyscale values rather than traditional colors to
create a still life image in mosaic. Precision cutting techniques will be covered, as well as
andamento, glass selection and shading.
Since this technique is more time consuming, a finished piece is not expected at the end of the
three day workshop, however guidance will be given during the class for the students to be able
to finish their mosaics on their own.
Students will select from one of nine images provided by the instructor for the class. These
images have been chosen for ideal contrast and detail for this technique.
All materials are provided, including a 10x10 inch prepared substrate with photo and drawing,
carbon paper to transfer, glue, and the loan of various tools to use during the workshop.
A variety of mosaic mediums will be provided, including stained glass, hand made ceramic tiles,
unglazed porcelain tiles, filati, and additional elements in a variety of colors.
During the workshop, while there is a bit of instruction addressed to the entire class (cutting,
andamento, and discussion of values/tones) I would say that 90% of the class is one-on-one
instruction and assistance with andamento and glass selection.
An email will be sent close to the time of the workshop with a list of any additional items
students may wish to bring. The instructor will have a limited number of tools available for
students to use as well.
The class usually starts at 10:00 am each day and finishes at 5:00 pm, with a break for lunch.
Bethel has lunch options on Friday and Saturday. In walking distance is The Village Sandwich Shop and Cockadoodle Pizza. Sunday it is recommended that students bring a lunch.
