Design your own personalized table top
In this intensive 2-day workshop you will mosaic the table of your dreams. Bring your own table or buy one of the the table frames we have here and make a unique and beautiful piece of signature furniture.
I will be there with my expertise to advise and help you along with the design and you will have a large palette of coloured tiles to choose from. You will learn everything about the different steps required to build a durable mosaic for the outdoors. Be aware that making a mosaic takes time as we work with small pieces (smalti). Depending on the intricacies of your design, the size of your table top and the speed at which you work, it is possible that you might not finish the whole table in two days. You do have the possibility to come and finish it in the studio here during the week following the workshop. Rest assured that no matter what, we will go through all the steps during this workshop so that you should feel confident enough to finish your masterpiece at home.
What you will learn in this workshop:
Principle of design for mosaics
Cutting of tiles and smalti with nippers or hammer & hardie
Direct and indirect method
Grouting and tips on how to avoid the forming of films
