I discovered the art of mosaics when I haphazardly picked up a kit in a department store. I stuck some small squares on a photo frame. It was quite simple and… and so cute! It had enjoyed it so much that I set off… It is this pleasure to play with coloured stones that I try to pass on during my workshops : to play with shapes, materials, colors and… to create!
My workshops are open to all : young and old, beginners and experienced mosaicists. They last a choice of 2 or 3 hours. Each participant leaves with an object decorated by him or herself : a photo frame, a coaster, a table mat, a mirror… No need to commit, you can join us just for once and come back… if you like.
What do the workshops look like ?
- when you arrive you choose an object you will decorate
- then you pick the small ceramic tiles, according to their texture, colour and sizes
- you prepare a composition, with or without a pattern, requiring the tiles to be cut or not
- you glue your creation on your object
- finally, you put on the joint (the cement will fill any holes between the tiles and guarantees that your object will be waterproof).
- and of course, I will guide you through each step !
In 2 hours you can make a coaster, or a picture frame
In 4 hours, a tablemat, a mirror, several coasters
And also !
