Focus on Form
Friday: 6th January (6pm - 9pm)
Saturday: 7th January (10am - 5pm)
Sunday: 8th January (10am - 5pm)
Join artist and teacher Caitlin Hepworth to learn to think differently about Sculptural Mosaic, where the development of the form is as much a consideration as the mosaic which is later applied to it. Caitlin has come to mosaic practice from a sculptural background and she aims to share her knowledge and love of this complex artform and its infinite possibilities.
It is Caitlin’s belief that in sculptural mosaic the form and the tesserae must energetically connect and work together to convey the artist’s intention. The two elements are co-dependent and intrinsically linked and for a successful outcome the sculptural form itself must be valid. Many mosaicists have well developed skills in the creative and technical aspects of mosaic, however many lack training and skills in sculpture and conceptual development.
In this workshop, students will learn strategies to explore, develop, evaluate and construct sculptural forms for mosaic.
This session should particularly benefit those who are interested in broadening their practice to include sculpture as well as those who have already begun to work in 3D.
Includes all materials and tools, extensive notes and handouts of each presentation, delicious morning tea and afternoon refreshments.
Note: This workshop does not include any mosaicing however the mosaic application is specifically discussed throughout the workshop.
