03 Dec 2011 SCRAP Workshop: Lost and Found Mosaics II w/ Jane Schafgans
Jane Schafgans is back by popular demand to share her wonderful mosaic techniques once again. In this weekend workshop participants will use SCRAP as their treasure trove as well as bring special items from home; beloved broken bits of favorite pottery or keepsakes or other objects, to create whimsical and dynamic mosaic works. Lost art and treasures can be found again and given new life!
On Saturday participants will create and layout their designs and devise their route of assemblage. Then Jane will show techniques for applying tile and treasures to their surfaces. On Sunday participants will grout and finish their mosaics.
Jane has been working with mosaics for over eight years. The minute she learned how to work in this medium, she fell in love with it. Jane likes to work with color, both in glass and tile. She loves how it enhances any space it occupies. Jane’s work is primarily privately owned, with the exception of some permanent installations at Lakeshore, Claire Lilienthal, and Gordon Lau Elementary Schools, where she has worked extensively with elementary school children.
