Go Big or Go Home with Kim Wozniak

Price: $335 (Includes $40 Materials Fee)
Through a little lecture and a lot of hands-on, students will learn the tips, tricks, and techniques of working with large format tile. Using tile saws, cutters, nippers, files and more they will learn how to create tesserae from larger format tile such as commercial wall and floor tiles without the use of a hammer. Students will be guided through the proper use of tools, creating difficult shapes such as circles and curves and smooth edges. Once students have mastered these skills they can use them to create large-scale works or incorporate the tesserae into their fine art. This workshop will benefit all skill levels and is of interest to those with a desire to create tesserae larger than the standard mosaic materials allow.
