Workshop Overview

The instructor will provide four photographs featuring light and shadow, from a simple shape to a more complex image, to be rendered in mosaic. Students will use hue and value in glass pieces to create the illusion of dimension in mosaic. We will address cutting techniques and andamento (the placement of tesserae, or pieces) for the most effective result. Students will choose their initial project based on their comfort level, and can attempt more challenging levels as time allows.

About the Instructor(s)

Jennifer Kuhns has been creating mosaic for 17 years. Her work ranges from strikingly realistic to decorative, highly designed tile installations. She has been featured in many exhibits and galleries throughout the country, and works with salvaged glass, tile and other reclaimed materials, painstakingly shaping each piece for assemblage into whimsical, exquisite mosaic art. She also creates custom mosaic for corporate and private clients. Her public art and community projects demonstrate a rare ability to engage, educate and create community with all ages and socio-economic groups. She lives and works on a small farm in rural Western Washington.
