Introduction to Smalti with Dianne Sonnenberg


Introduction to Smalti with Dianne Sonnenberg

Handcrafted glass Smalti is one of the most beautiful and revered mosaic materials available. It has been used for centuries by mosaic masters worldwide, in both traditional and contemporary mosaic work.

If you have never used this exquisite material in your mosaics, this class will provide an excellent introduction. We will learn about the different types of smalti, cutting methods and techniques, andamento (the layout and direction of your mosaic pieces), adhesives, and more. Dianne will provide a combination of slideshow presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on individual instruction.

Each participant will make two 6x6" mosaics, using both traditional and contemporary techniques. It is possible to complete both mosaics during the weekend course, but many participants choose to finish them on their own time after the course. Patterns will be provided to facilitate the process.

Prior mosaic experience is recommended, but not required.

April 5 - 26 | Thursdays - 9:30am-12:30pm

Cost: $335 (includes materials)
