Workshop Description: The key objective of this workshop is to start thinking about using the substrate, adhesive, and tesserae as equal partners in the overall design of a mosaic; using mortar as a major player in the design and not just in a supporting role. You will learn how to mix tinted mortars, and explore different ways to incorporate them as part of your overall design by using them to create colourful backgrounds, and as a decorative adhesive (including the “dot” technique). To explore these techniques you will create 2 separate abstract 9" x 12" pieces exploring the multitude of ways that tinted mortar can be used on substrates that you will learn to build from scratch. Using the variety of tesserae supplied, you will have the opportunity to see how subtle colour changes and textures create depth and visual interest with mortar under-painted substrates.
