Kelley Knickerbocker
Maverick Mosaics
October 27, 28 & 29, 2017

Many of us came to mosaic via the broken dish, and this is an opportunity to up our game, so get out grandma’s china or that awesome mug you’ve been saving. Kelley is known for her dynamic teaching style and inventive techniques, so this workshop promises to be chock full of information and countless tips for working with these materials. n this technique-rich, hands-on workshop, Kelley ramps picassiette up an innovative notch with her unusual methods of cutting/setting not only the flat surfaces of plates and other ceramic ware, but the lips, feet, rims, handles, lids, spouts, and more, including the exposing/tinting of the inner clay body. Students will learn cutting tools and techniques; setting in mortar to maximize sculptural/dimensional possibilities; building a cohesive color/material palette, and composing with crockery’s challenging curves and bumps.
