Karen Mitchell and Ann Mitchell: Miniature Masterpieces: Creating Polymer Micromosaics
Bring your tweezers and your patience, and let the fun begin! Inspired by a centuries-old Italian art form, micromosaics are transformed in polymer to tiny forms of self-expression.
Karen studied the traditional method of glass micromosaic construction in Rome from a Vatican school instructor, and has developed a polymer adaptation of the special diminutive art. This workshop is comprised of planning a mosaic design, creating or using bezels, making tile variations, tile application, and finishing. Design discussions will include use of color and contrast, pictorial versus abstract composition, and tile shapes. Both traditional and polymer adapted methods of tile application will be taught. Liquid clay techniques specific to this project will be covered.
Polymer takes the art of micromosaics to new places, and offers the opportunity to create tiny modern masterpieces. The versatility of polymer clay allows for a broad color spectrum, complex patterning, color blending, and endless possibilities for personalized works. Come and join us for a day of making small designs with big impact! A small materials fee will apply.
