Welcome to mosaic in a square way.
This workshop will cover all the basic information for the beginning student, starting with the first portion of 4 x 4 tile projects. Once you gain your confidence, you can choose to create the mirror project as well. Kits are available for purchase, choose which ones you'd like to do. You will learn about the process of creating a mosaic piece; cutting, adhesion, and tile layout. Students will be introduced to materials such as glass tile, art glass, china, ceramic tile, and more. Students are encouraged to experiment with color and texture to discover the possibilities of mosaic. This class will include patterns and a few more surprises that she is only sharing in this online class. 
About: Laura K. Aiken can't remember a time when she didn't love to color and to this day she hasn't changed. Creativity is a big part of Laura's life, and she has to create, and she loves to create for others. Laura has been playing with mosaic work since 2002 and drawing and painting playfully since she could hold a crayon. She lives with her husband Chris who had no idea what he was getting into when he married her, and a son James who is trying to understand his mother now that's he is in his 20's. Her assistant Gracie, the talking cat, is beautiful but an almost a worthless worker except for posing for photographs. Laura K. Aiken's artwork has been featured in books, magazines publications and on HGTV-Home and Gardens Network to name a few. Her works can also be seen in churches, schools and several businesses around the United States and Europe. Her studio where she teaches her workshops is located in beautiful Heritage Historic District in downtown Greenville, South Carolina.
