Workshop Details

“Nature provides space to quiet our souls, gain perspective, and harness our creativity," says Wilma Wyss. “Explore Esalen’s stunning grounds to find places that resonate and inspire your mosaic art, be it big vistas, small individual succulents, or anything in between. Mosaic is a slow and contemplative art form, perfectly suited for Esalen’s restorative setting.”
In this mosaic workshop, you can conceive, develop, and realize your own mosaic project. You sketch initial concepts in pencil. Wilma works one-on-one with you as you develop your concept into mosaic artwork. You can compose in glass, tile, and found objects. Demonstrations include cutting and shaping the materials, adhesives, and use of color. Slide presentations illustrate relevant examples and the power of pattern. Known for her joyful teaching style and her creative use of materials, Wilma provides individual instruction to foster your creativity. This workshop is designed for adults who may have some experience with mosaic, as well as anyone who has never touched a wheeled nipper.
The materials fee provides high-quality wheeled nippers (to keep), glass in a wide variety of colors, and materials to complete one or more wall-hung mosaics.
Contact if you plan to bring your own tools and materials.
($75 materials fee will be added to the workshop cost)
