Make Your Mark: Your Mosaic Signature and Other Motifs with Kelley Knickerbocker
Session 7: Thursday, April 25, 2019, 8:00am – 5:00pm
Price: $325 (Includes $30 Materials Fee)
In this fun, information-packed workshop you’ll learn and apply principles of shape, value, contrast, and readability to the making of four small mosaics that capture your personality and style. You’ll design your own signature block or logo as well as several other related motifs, and will gain an understanding of how motifs can enliven and unite mosaic design and composition. Instruction will be via slide show, handouts, demos, discussion, exercises, hands-on building, one-on-one guidance, and critique. A diverse variety of materials will be provided; all you need to bring are your nippers (Montolits recommended), a smile, and a sense of adventure!
