Mosaics Masterclass is tutored by Susie Chaikin, for more information about Susie, visit www.susiechaikin.com
Mosaics Masterclass is a 4 day class working on large figures. The boards will be pre-cut for you in the shape used in the above images. You will be collecting a variety of China and
memorabilia to include in your piece. Consider thinking what you are making your
piece about, so that you are working with an intention. For example mine above is
all about ageing and body parts getting challenged. It might be inspired by the
climate, be sentimental, about family, ancestors, an artist, a poem, a memory,
politics…..whatever you are passionate about make it personal to you. Give this
some thought and then begin your collection of China for your piece based on
your chosen inspiration. Not everything has to be china, plastic, metal and glass
will work too. It has to be easily wipeable to clean away the grout.
You need to consider what colour you want to use for the body face, and hair and
collect a lot of it. You might have a passed down China tea set you can use or
china pieces that you no longer want to display but want to keep for sentimental
reasons. I find the key to an interesting piece is the little extras you include,
ornaments, flowers, text on china, birds, figures china lids, text on china is really
I will be collecting too but as part of the master class I think it’s important to learn
how to source material, and we will need a lot of china. White is easy and cheap to
source but if you wanted your figure to be green or blue get collecting!! My
favourite stage is the gathering of materials. if you’ve done a workshop before you
may have gathered a feel for what you want to use.
