Learn the basics of how to design a mosaic, lay and cut tiles, cement, and grout. This two day class features the traditional double-indirect mosaic method. We work on a smallish mosaic for this workshop, generally a 6 inch trivet, so that you will be able to complete your mosaic during the class.
During the first session, you’ll learn all about mosaic methods and tools. You will learn to make a template, design your mosaic, and how to nip and work with tiles.
You have the opportunity to work on your mosaic throughout the week whenever the studio is open. During the second session you’ll learn all about transferring and cementing and will then cement your mosaic.
There will be a grout demonstration and you’ll take home grout to do that step at home.
All materials are provided in the class. No mosaic experience required.
This is either a two day evening class or 2 day weekend day class (sometimes Sat and Sunday and sometimes 2 consecutive Saturdays) that allows us to create a small mosaic!
$175 per person

Seattle Mosaic was founded by Dr. Claire Barnett in 2009 to create community and support through shared creativity, the studio features workshops from international visiting artists, mosaic technique classes, lectures, art shows, group events, commissions, and, of course, space and time to create your own mosaic projects.
Piecing together is the heart of SMA. As a member-based studio, we are a large group of creative, generous people working together to nurture community at all levels. We offer a lovely, light and color-filled shared space to work creatively with others, to learn, and to be inspired.
SMA and its members are using their hearts and hands to bring beauty and foster community. From a welcome sign at a local Pea Patch to the mosaicing of the pediatric ward of a hospital in Haiti, we are involved at all levels: fundraising, technical support, education and, of course, hands-on tiling.
Committed to the growth and development of mosaic art in the Pacific Northwest, SMA provides resources, materials, support and space for the sharing of all things mosaic.
