Exterior and Garden Applications
Instructor: Delaine Hackney or Rachel Rodi
Sessions 2 Day: Sat 10am - 4pm and Sun 10am - 1pm
This class will cover information on mosaics intended for exterior and permanent use. Lecture will include info on substrates appropriate for exterior use and their preparation, fixatives, setting, grouting and sealing. Information on clay bodies and glazes for exterior use. Ceramic tile for exterior use will be used, which is a bit more challenging to cut than tile intended for indoor use.
This class is great for the beginner as we will be covering tools, cutting techniques, mosaic design and lay patterns...and is also appropriate for the student who has already experimented with interior or craft mosaics and would like to expand their knowledge to include exterior, garden or permanent installations. Students will create a ceramic tile mosaic stepping stone to take home.
