WORKSHOPS

FALL – Architectural Installation Workshop
Saturday, October 23rd – 3pm and 30th 10am – 2pm
*hour break for lunch, lunch is included
This will be an intermediate class for students who are looking to experiment with permanent applications. This class will address both technical, design and material information for students who want to apply mosaic tile to interior surfaces for permanent installation.
Students will learn about designing for specific areas (i.e.: back splashes, bathrooms, fireplaces, etc.)and appropriate materials for those applications. This class will cover a good amount of technical information, such as surface preparation, adhesives and grouting. Students will learn to install using the indirect method (using mesh and tile tape) as well as the direct method of tile application.
Basic mosaic information like cutting tiles will not be covered in this class, so a beginning class is recommended.

Workshop Fee – $175.00
