One-Day Smalti Workshop with Chicago Mosaic School
Instructor: Brenda L. Montanile
Date & Time: Saturday, September 9, 9 AM – 4 PM
Fee: $275.00

This workshop explores the rich, colorful, traditional material called smalti, a Byzantine glass that has been made in Europe for centuries. Our vast smalti inventory gives students the opportunity to work with this unique material and learn about its applications and cutting. Students are introduced to tools like the hammer & hardie, as well as thinset, color, and the use of light and texture in mosaics. Students will complete a 5” x 5” piece.

All materials are included. No prerequisite required.
