After watching videos on YouTube and being inspired by the work of Sonia King, I signed up for a mosaic art workshop in spring of 2015 at the Winnipeg Art Gallery Studio. The workshop was lead by a talented Russian artist named Dimitry Komar. It was one of the best things I did for myself last year. I quickly learned that breaking pieces of tile and arranging them to make one cohesive picture or pattern was so relaxing and allowed my mind to take a break from everyday worries.
Unfortunately I gifted my first piece without taking a proper photo, so here’s the second piece I created.
Here’s the video I watched that really got me interested in the craft.
Apparently the WAG Studio isn’t offering these workshops any longer, but Prairie Studio Glass has a one day workshop coming up in February.
