Spiky, Pokey, Shardy: Shag Rug Mosaic
with guest tutor Margo Anton from Canada
Dates: Sat 22nd & Sun 23rd Feb 2020
Times: 10am – 5pm both days
Fees: $440 inc all materials and GST
Non-traditional use of smalti is all the rage! Learn how to create fun colourful smalti “shag” mosaic in this hands-on, two day workshop. Shag rug mosaic has its own laying style and andamento technique that is both fascinating and complicated. Margo will show you how to navigate the various decisions required for each section and piece. Class participants will receive individual attention as they work on a 15cm by 15cm (or similar) shag rug style mosaic in smalti.

The Development of sculptural form for mosaic
with Caitlin Hepworth
Date: Sunday 8th March 2020
Times: 10am - 5pm
Fees: $220 inc materials and GST
Join artist and teacher Caitlin Hepworth to learn to think differently about Sculptural Mosaic, where the development of the form is as much a consideration as the mosaic which is later applied to it. Caitlin has come to mosaic practice from a sculptural background and she aims to share her knowledge and love of this complex artform and its infinite possibilities. It is Caitlin’s firm belief that in sculptural mosaic the form and the tesserae must energetically connect and work together to convey the artist’s intention. The two elements are co-dependent and intrinsically linked and for a successful outcome the sculptural form itself must be valid. In this workshop students’ will learn strategies to explore, develop, evaluate and construct sculptural forms for mosaic. Students will leave with a range of practical examples and a small sculptural form. This workshop will particularly benefit those who are interested in broadening their practice to include sculpture as well as those who have already begun to work in 3D.
Note: This workshop does not include any mosaicing however the mosaic application is discussed where relevant throughout the workshop.

PART 2: SAT/SUN 2/3 MAY:3D MOSAICS WITH CAITLIN HEPWORTH
Well-known amongst the Australian mosaic community is leading mosaic practitioner and instructor, Caitlin Hepworth. Caitlin will teach Part 2 of this 3D mosaic Course, exploring how mosaic can be used not simply as a skin for a 3D form, but rather to establish connections between form and tesserae to support conceptual intent.
Situated in the beautiful Blue Mountains, Hughes Studio workshops often attract participants from interstate. There are a broad range of accommodation options available at a range of price points. Please contact Caitlin for a customised list of recommended options.
