Create a mosaic with traditional handmade Mexican glass smalti tiles, and gain experience with the unique design potential of this medium. In this four-week workshop, students will design and fabricate a 10 X 10 mosaic. Please bring photos, books, and sketches as inspiration for mosaic designs. All materials provided; appropriate for all levels.
When this technique was invented in Provincetown over one hundred years ago, it was a way to make Japanese Woodblock printing easier. Instead of carving a separate block for each color and registering the blocks, all of the colors are on one block. Each area is hand painted with watercolor, making this a type of printing that is very painterly.
Take my White Line Woodcut Workshop on the Cape!
I will be teaching a Japanese Woodblock Printing workshop as a Visiting Artist at the Falmouth Art Center in July.
