Everything Color: Mosaics with Erin Pankratz-Smith

280.00

Saturday Jan. 18th and Sunday Jan. 19th 10am - 4pm.

Learn the fine art of mosaics in a unique workshop opportunity, led by award-winning Edmonton artist, Erin Pankratz-Smith.

 

Students will learn how to mix tinted mortars, and explore different ways to incorporate them as part of their overall design by using them in their backgrounds, and as a decorative adhesive. Students will do this by creating 4 separate abstract 4" x 4" ungrouted pieces that utilize colour gradation, colour in context, and/or colour blocking. Using a variety of different tesserae students will have the opportunity to see how subtle colour changes and textures create depth and visual interest. It is a very experimental class designed to get people trying new ideas and expanding their idea of mosaic. In addition, there we will be discussion on technical constraints, and on incorporating traditional techniques as well.

Lecture includes; basic colour theory, colour in context, gradations, colour blocking, shading (explanation of tint and shade), colour cohesion, and many examples of all. The lecture ends with a introduction to mixing tinted mortars and their applications.

Tiles, tints (wet and dry), 4" substrates, specialty tiles, mille, and tiny gold smalti will be supplied.   It works well if people bring a tiny bit of tiles to use themselves or share. Again to get the greatest variety.
 
Again this is a "pushing the envelope" class, people will come away with samples of new ways of working with materials and a greater sense of playfulness which is a key to creativity.

Cost $250.00 CAD (+ $30.00 Supplies Fee)
