Price: $370 (Includes $60 Materials Fee)

In this workshop learn how to translate photos of flowers into realistic and powerful mosaic statements. We will start with a slide presentation on making flower mosaics including the choice of images, picking out colors, drawing andamento, and using tonal gradients to shade the petals. The presentation will be followed by a hands-on demo on starting your project. Yulia will also demo how to choose shades of colors and how to cut her signature boat-shaped ”brushstroke” cuts and apply them to the layout of petals. The practice part of the workshop will concentrate on building a color palette with gradients of colors and learning how to use brushstroke cut tesserae to create effective layout. Individual demos will be given throughout the workshop time.
