Hours: 10am – 5pm

Material included:  6” square substrate per student, enough coordinated materials (easy to cut; for example, stained glass, glass tile, or unglazed porcelain) to cover each substrate.


Minimum # of students: 5

The shape of each tessera (piece) directly impacts how the tesserae (and their interstices) visually flow (andamento) in a mosaic. This workshop is an exploration of several shapes and how they can be fit and directed into fun and effective andamenti. Through a combination of lecture/slideshow, discussion, drawing, and hands-on building, students will learn to execute several modern field andamenti: random circles, random squares/rectangles, trapezoids, and undulating. Students will gain understanding and proficiency by discussing and then drawing each andamento and creating a 6” x 6” mosaic.




About the Instructor:  Kelley Knickerbocker


Visual artist Kelley Knickerbocker began studying mosaic in 2005 with various artists around the US, then left a 22-yr administrative career at the University of Washington in 2006 to found a mosaic studio (Rivenworks Mosaics, Seattle) and begin designing/ fabricating/installing mosaic artwork for public, commercial, residential and gallery environments. Kelley’s ruggedly dimensional mosaic artworks – in natural materials, found objects, sometimes even the waste of the studio process itself, such as paper towels and random blobs of hardened cement mortar – are a textural distillation of her fascination with contrast, material properties and the technical challenges of mosaic construction.  Her work is widely collected and regularly exhibited in the US and abroad, and her unusual techniques garnered her the 2015 Innovation in Mosaic Award from the Society of American Mosaic Artists in 2015. Believing that interaction with other art makers is key to the freshness and depth of her mosaic practice, Kelley travels extensively speaking, collaborating, and teaching in-depth workshops on mosaic style and technique.
