Mosaic Art Holiday
African Bead Mosaics in Capetown, South Africa
with Karla Duterloo
October 23 - 29, 2016

Come and enjoy a mosaic holiday in Cape Town
A combination of a week full of mosaic and some sightseeing in one of the most beautiful cities of the world.

Mosaic Course:

During the course we'll make a mosaic disk incorporating beaded African elements.

No mosaic experience is required. The designs are abstract and non-figurative. We'll work on a bamboo wooden disk, on which you can work with various mosaic materials from the African Continent. We'll incorporate traditional beadwork from Africa, handmade glass fusions, glass beads and various mosaic tiles. This will be a unique experience working with so many special different elements. And of course lots of colour!
I'll show you how to find inspiration for your design, as well as your colour-palette for the mosaic. I will also show you lots of examples of how to develop a design and incorporate beadwork, as well as showing some of my own mosaics disks and necessary guidelines.

I'll teach you all there is to know about cutting and laying of the tiles if you are a beginner, the grouting process and much more. I will provide handouts and make pictures of the process which we can later discuss.

I will provide the disks and all basic mosaic materials, but glass fusions and beadwork will be on offer to purchase from me or during our excursion to the market.
