My Classes at Institute of Mosaic Art in Berkeley

I was asked last year to teach a class in making 3 dimensional wall hanging substrates for mosaic. It's not as complicated as it sounds! I started creating substrates like this for myself a few years ago. I won't go back to flat boards ever again! I taught last October, this past March and will be teaching again this coming October.
As one of my students said: "Life will never be flat again!"

Before the class, I cut out several simple shapes for the students.

They learn the techniques of working with thinset and mesh to protect the edges.
 

Hard at work the second day. Learning about working with cement.


Some finished pieces, ready for mosaic.
