New Art Center presents: Classical and Contemporary Mexican Smalti Mosaics Workshop
May 11, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until May 18, 2021
Learn the materials and methods to create your own original beautiful Mexican smalti mosaic. Mexican smalti is a high-quality handmade glass mosaic in a square to rectangular module that offers a broad range of colors from subtle skin tones to vibrant primaries. Students will bring a design for your choice for a 9” square. In the studio, teacher and artist Joshua Winer will teach you to transfer the design onto a panel, cover the panel with webbing, cut and build the mosaic onto the webbing using Adamento flowing rhythms and Opus styles (including Vermiculatum, Musivum, and Regulatum), lift the mosaic with clear adhesive film, and cement the work into colored thin-set.
