Workshop "Powerful Flowers"with Dino Maccini October 2019
In October 2019 mosaic master Dino Maccini and his son Daniele came to our studio to teach us all about his unique (direct) technique, the manufacturing of the substrate made of mdf and slate.
We studied colours and researched the movement of the tesserae (smalti) to give the flower its proper and natural shape.
We had students from the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Belgium and Switzerland, but we all spoke the same language....MOSAIC!
Workshop "Bas-Relief" with Carole Choucair Oueijan May 2018
The second international workshop was also given by award-winning mosaicist and painter Carole Choucair Oueijan from the USA. Our subject this time was "Bas-Relief with smalti and more"
We learned how to design and build our own abstract Bas-Relief artwork, the balance of shapes and harmony of colours. How to construct levels and add volume to our piece.
Again we had a great international group of students!
Like in 2017, after the workshop, we toured for a couple of days in the area.
Curious of what we did and learned? See the pictures below.
Workshop "Catching Eyes" with Carole Choucair Oueijan June 2017
The first workshop in our brand new Studio Paradise Mosaics was given by award-winning mosaicist and painter Carole Choucair Oueijan from the USA. Our subject was "Catching Eyes" surrounded by fabric. To catch the eyes right and the folding of the fabric is not the easiest thing to do, but we did it!
You can see the results in the slideshow.
5 full days filled with 'nip and talk' (in 5 languages!), some serious work, music and fun. We learned a lot and our students were the best!
