$2050 total cost for the workshop and accommodations for the week

About the Hacienda….it is a magical corner of the world. This walled garden hacienda with swimming pool and inviting common areas is artist owned and operated. Art abounds! The accommodations are excellent. Every room is uniquely decorated and comfortable. Meals are prepared poolside in an open air kitchen and every meal is a treat. The Hacienda is located in a family friendly residential neighborhood. A quick and inexpensive taxi ride gets you to the beaches and wonderful shopping, art galleries, restaurants and nightlife. Puerto Vallarta is a beautiful and friendly beach resort.

During this five day mosaic retreat, you’ll learn all the skills needed to create your very own 3D Sculptural Mosaic piece. We’ll begin with learning how to construct the base, and  then how to build and add on pieces, using a variety of materials that stack to create your three dimensional piece. Working on a smaller scale you’ll be able to bring your pieces home with you in your large suitcase. You may select your own object or theme-  birds, fish, hearts, cactus, mermaid, or whatever you can imagine. One on one discussion via email or Facetime will be held in advance of the workshop.

Should you prefer to bring your own mosaic project idea to work on for the week, I am more than willing to accommodate that. We will work together in advance to discuss your project idea. You will then be responsible for bringing your own materials and the appropriate hand tools to cut your selected tesserae. For safe and cost effective transportation of your art work we suggest student designs not exceed 4 square feet. Workshop includes numerous hand-out materials and resource information.

Students must bring mosaic hand tools (good quality wheeled nipper, glass scoring tool, and a running plier.

This workshop is open to students of all levels. Although some mosaic experience may be helpful, it is not necessary.
