Mosaic in Space

May 12th - June 2nd
John Drury |

Imagine a mosaic lunging from the wall or leaping up from the floor – a three-dimensional mash-up of the medieval and magic, allowing protest, or simply announcing, “I am here”. This 4-session course will look to examples both historical and contemporary in search of your own unique voice, realized one piece at a time. With an eye to recycling and the power of the found object, participants will investigate the direct method of glass mosaic in this hands-on and fast paced class. We will meet over four Saturdays to design, create, finalize and grout our unique creations.

Got something to say? A burning issue you are passionate about? Let’s do it. The mosaic technique has long been employed to carry the message of believer and heretic. Unleash then, the lap-dog, bane of your creative efforts, to proclaim (in perhaps new found radical enlightenment), “not your Daddy’s wall”. An ideal course for the image-maker or wordsmith, looking for a creative avenue to jump off the page. This is a chance to delve into the powers of the object, seeing proactive thought twist and turn, utilizing “has been” and demanding “will be”. Beauty is, of course, proverbially in the eye of the beholder but, to only decorate is to abet; a new glass, for a new day. Find your “loud” voice, get woke. No experience is necessary.
