11 Aug 2011 SCRAP Workshop: Lost & Found Mosaics w/ Jane Schafgans
It’s time for mosaics! Jane is back to share her wonderful techniques and she’s adding a new twist. In this two-part workshop lost art and treasures are found again and given new life! During this two-part workshop participants will use SCRAP as a treasure trove as well as bring special things from home, beloved broken bits of favorite pottery or keepsakes or other objects, to create whimsical and dynamic mosaic works.
The first Saturday Jane will show techniques for applying tile and treasures to a variety of surfaces. Then she will help participants design and devise their route of assemblage. The second two-hour class will be devoted to the process of grouting.
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 two public schools, Lakeshore and Gordon Lau Elementary Schools, where she has worked extensively with elementary school children.
