Join me at the magical Hacienda Mosaico for an immersive week of creative expression through mosaic mural making.

During our week together we will create a gorgeous mandala-inspired mosaic mural as a group, learning about the co-creative process and techniques used in mosaic mural making, while simultaneously exploring our own inspirations and the myriad forms the expression of gratitude can take.

Our days will start off with morning discussions about creative philosophy and practice, using inspirational texts, quotes and optional sharing as jumping off points. We will explore ideas around integrating gratitude and mindfulness in our artwork and daily lives, as well as working with and manifesting our creative ideas.

Workshop includes instruction in mosaic making principles using glass, mirror and ceramic, as well as technical lessons in precision tool use, construction methods for larger works using tile tape and installation and grouting techniques for architectural projects.

Our mural project will be of a size and complexity that can easily be completed and installed during the week while allowing for time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings at Hacienda Mosaico and have personal time to relax into a great creative retreat. 

In addition to participating in the group mural-making process, students will have the opportunity to create a small, mosaic piece of their own to take home during several quiet, meditative making sessions.

The workshop is open to students of all levels, although some mosaic experience may be helpful, it is not necessary. Skills will be presented that can be taken home and applied to future projects, both large and small-scale. 

This workshop would be excellent of those who simply want experience the creation of a largermosaic piece in community with others, and also for those who are interested in learning more about the technical aspects of mosaic mural making, which can be applied to architectural, public and community-based projects. 

Hacienda Mosaico is one of my favorite places to teach.. I hope you can join me for this immersive creative experience!

Workshop fee of $1950 includes five days of workshop instruction, all materials, accommodations (based on double occupancy), healthy and delicious breakfast and lunch, and an all-around awesome time.
