5 day workshop with Françoise Moulet


"Portrait Contemporary Style"

intensive 5 day workshop with

Françoise Moulet

1-5 July 2022 (NEW DATE!)


If interested please contact me

Dear mosaic artists and -friends,

I am happy to announce that the French mosaic artist Françoise Moulet is coming to my studio in Berkenwoude (the Netherlands) for a portrait workshop.

A 5 day (40 hours) intensive workshop in which Françoise will teach us how to approach portraying in mosaic in a Contemporary style

She will explain how she sets up her portraits

-          From black and white photos (desaturated images)

-          Using some basic computer enhancements (filters, contrast, levels, blur etc)

-          Excerpting and accentuating the main lines of the face features

All this within some new and unusual color scheme (elaborating a color palette with the color wheel/ chroma disk)

See attached pictures + 3 portraits made by students.


It’s better to work on a (first) portrait that is not too personal. It's already quite hard work to focus on the technique without the challenge of a personal work and the pressure you will definitively feel when you make a portrait of a close person. Also it's important to work on photo with a very good light quality and definition. That’s why Françoise will provide us with a selection of portraits to choose from. If you really, really (!) want to do your own, it can be discussed beforehand.


We will work with stained glass.

Size of the work will be 25 x 25 cm.


The workshop will be in English (and French if you wish)
