Participants will create their own abstract mosaic by embedding the mosaic tesserae into an adhesive without the need to grout. Participants will learn how to use color pigments, create patterns and properly use certain adhesives.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own favorite materials but are not required to do so.
Class size 4-8 participants. Price is $55 for DRA members and $65 for non-members, plus $12 supply fee.

GUAC Workshop: Patterned Mosaics Without Using Grout
Nancy Kline, currently residing in Alexandria Virginia, has always been interested in the arts. In 2009, she discovered the wonderful world of mosaic art. Since then, she has explored a variety of techniques and styles, both modern and ancient, through classes and workshops taught by leading mosaic artists. Ms. Kline uses a broad range of materials and techniques, from traditional to modern, in order to create texture and color contrasts. Her various works may be suitable for interior or exterior spaces. She also creates wearable art. Nancy has been a member of Del Ray Artisans since 2011 and frequently exhibits her work at the gallery. Her works also appear in local non-gallery settings.
