About this event

Sold out - wait list available

Always wanted to use smalti? A traditional and prestigious mosaic material with unique properties with light, smalti has been used for over a thousand years to produce beautiful mosaic work. Discover the history of smalti and the differences and similarities between the different makes. Explore the visual effects which can be achieved by different ways of laying smalti and discover how to cut it using modern cutting techniques. You will work towards a small smalti mosaic (25 x 25 cm) to your own design. Wheeled nippers are used for this workshop though there will be the opportunity to try out a hammer and hardie.

This workshop is at intermediate level and is for people with some mosaic experience, though experience of working with smalti is not necessary. It is not suitable for total beginners. Substrates and adhesives are provided, but you need to bring your own smalti and wheeled nippers. Any smalti that can be cut with wheeled nippers is suitable and you will need between 1 - 1.5 kilos. If you wish to use Mexican Smalti, there will be a selection available for purchase at the workshop. Additionally, you can order in advance from Smalti Australia and they will deliver your order to Catherine's studio.
