Out of the Blue, Abbeymount is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Visitors are allowed at class times and at the invitation of resident artists.
This workshop will explore different mosaic materials which can easily be salvaged or collected to make beautiful abstract pieces.
You will begin with a brief overview of mosaics and take a look at the various methods, approaches and possibilities of the medium before focusing on gathered and found materials. You will be using the direct tile adhesive method and you will learn how to build your own substrate and the various cutting techniques needed to make your own mosaics before considering design ideas and getting stuck in.
The idea is to play and experiment and there will be the opportunity to make as many mosaics as you like, trying out different colours, textures and patterns to achieve striking effects.
The day will end with a demonstration of how to install your mosaics at home on an outdoor or indoor wall or onto a movable plaque.
