From the Land to the Ocean mosaics exhibition will be a visual journey from the land to the sea, in the United Nations Decade of Oceans. Take a day trip through the diverse countryside of South Australia, winding your way down to the sea. Pause along the way enjoying life on the land, soaking in the beautiful coastline or take a dive into the ocean, and see what lies beneath.
Saturday 7 October 2 pm - 3.30 pm
Kristin Wohlers – Which adhesive can I use?
Kristin will explore the variety of adhesives available that can be used for different types of mosaics.
Saturday 14 October 2 pm - 3.30 pm
Elaine Spence and Helen Blackman – The use of slate, other rock, and found objects.
Elaine and Helen will demonstrate the use of slate and other rock types in mosaics, including how to cut, and the use of complementary materials, all bedded in cement adhesive.
Saturday 18 October 2 pm - 3.30 pm
Anne Allen – Working with Mixed Media
Anne will focus on using nippers and glass cutters to create a mosaic using a range of tesserae such as smalti, stained glass, ceramics, glazed china and others.
Saturday 21 October 2 pm - 3.30 pm
Penny Craig - Marble and Smalti in Mosaics
My materials of choice are the gradations of Marble Limestone and Travertine worked together with the rich colours of Italian Smalti. You can observe how these materials are cut and embedded in a cement adhesive so that no grouting is necessary.
Exhibition concludes on Friday 3 November at 4 pm.
