Hello Mosaic Fans- My plan was to start teaching workshops every month this year starting in February, but alas, the world had different plans. I will post an update when things have settled down. Stay Safe!
June 2018 - Mosaic Madness at Tupelo on 4th in Safety Harbor, Florida!
In July 2016, I traveled to Safety Harbor, Florida, to work on a 40’ foam bench that my mosaic colleague, Melissa Haist had conceptualized. She hired her friend, Kumpa Tawornprom who is a professional large-scale industrial foam sculptor (works can be seen at Disney & Warner Brothers theme parks throughout the country) to create a curvy 40’ bench outside at Tupelo on 4th (her boutique and art studio). I spent 6 days with Kumpa to encapsulate the bench with wire and mortar to create a substrate for the mosaic.
This June 2018, I traveled back to Safety Harbor, FL to help Melissa come up with a design for the mosaic bench, to teach several workshops on creating large-scale mosaics, and to have the students contribute to covering the bench in tile. We made a good amount of progress and look forward to more workshop sessions in the near future.
