Participants will create a mosaic portrait under Gila’s guidance in this workshop. Gila will share some methods she learned at the Mosaic School in Spilembergo, Italy. The materials used will be a combination of Mexican Smalti (a thick luscious glass vibrant in color) & picassiette (dishes, saucers, pottery, etc.). Participants may also incorporate additional materials such as stone, marble, and found objects.
This course is for intermediate/advanced students & not intended as an introduction to mosaic.
Prior to the workshop all registered students will receive an email from Gila with a selection of reference choices and a list of additional materials &/or tools that may be necessary or helpful for the workshop.

Butterflies that Flutterby,
Catch Your own Mosaic Butterfly
Saturday, June 4, – 11 am to 3 pm
I’ve created a custom metal butterfly cutout for this class, so you can make an exterior mosaic that lives forever in your garden. This four hours workshop flutters by fast. I’ve designed this class to expose the students to a variety of glass and work in three dimensions. We will cover the basic mosaic techniques, tools, and jargon. Start your transformation into a mosaic artist in a fun and social way. All material included. In case the project is not completed in class. We will cover grouting, grout, and rubber gloves and go home with you.
Bring nothing, but your snacks and drinks.
Instructors: Barbara Dybala
