If you love mosaics and are ready to tackle installations but don’t know where to start, this is the workshop for you! Taking on an architectural mosaic project can be a scary prospect! In this two day workshop, Cathleen Newsham, founder of Modern Mosaic Arts, will try to calm your nerves by showing you her tried and true techniques and sharing her experiences from 17 years of architectural mosaic creation. Detailing the initial process of pricing, presenting and designing, as well as sourcing, fabrication and installing, she will reveal her secrets to a successful mosaic installation. You will get an inside look at how a mural is made and how to turn your love of mosaic into a business that can be profitable and fun!

I have taken an Architectural Mosaic workshop with Cathleen Newsham over the past weekend, through Mosaic Oasis in Arlington MA. Cathleen provided a wealth of practical, applied knowledge from how to price out a potential job, to seeking out clientele, to mosaic installation that is durable in the New England climate. I feel very equipped to take on an architectural installation job since taking the workshop. Thank you, Cathleen!”
“I definitely enjoyed the workshop and was impressed with your ability to turn your passion into a viable career for yourself. More specifically, it clearly takes a lot of thought and organization to put together a workshop that is more than just a showcase of your work, but that thoroughly answers the practical questions that up and coming mosaic artists struggle with. You hardly missed a thing. As evidenced by the comments of attendees leaving the workshop, you gave many of us more confidence to pursue both personal and professional projects.”
“I’ve been feeling grateful all week that I was able to participate in the Architectural Mosaics workshop. You’re a great teacher. I didn’t expect to gain as much as I did in terms of practical methods and better understanding of materials. I got all my supplies yesterday, and will be using it with my fifth graders for our outdoor project!”
