Marian Shapiro is running another series of her private Working with Smalti workshops in her home studio in Glenbrook, NSW. This is an intermediate level workshop aimed at people with previous mosaic experience who want to try out a new material or or develop their smalti skills. No previous knowledge of smalti is required. Limited to three people.
She shares her extensive knowledge of using this beautiful and traditional material and you work towards a 25 x 25 cm artwork suitable for interior or exterior to your own design. Her art is on the walls, the studio overlooks the bush and there is walk-in access to the Smalti Australia store next door.
Substrates, hanging hardware, adhesives and oxides are supplied. You need to either bring your own smalti or buy it from Smalti Australia at a 10% discount once you are here.
Wheeled nippers are used in this workshop but there will be two hammers and hardies available for the group, or you can bring your own hammer and desktop hardie if you want to use them.
Total cost of $380 includes substrates, adhesives and colourants, morning and afternoon tea and a light lunch both days. Morning and afternoon tea and a light lunch are provided on both days and you are welcome to stay for wine and nibbles after class on day 1. This non refundable deposit secures your place.
