Mexican Smalti with Betsy Gallery
January 31st-February 1st
Saturday& Sunday 10a-4p & 10a-3p
Betsy Gallery has traveled the world learning the art of creating mosaics. Whether she has been to Orsoni in Venice, The Mosaic Art School in Ravenna or the Perdomo School and Factory in Cuernavaca, she is always on a mission to learn. We are so lucky to have her reside right here in Santa Barbara. In this fun and creative two day workshop students learn hands on how to create with Mexican smalti. Betsy takes students through all thesteps from design and color choices, to lay out and tracing to learning how to cut the smalti and fit each piece properly next to each other. Using all the correct terminology and proper materials students leave with a deep understanding of this material and how it cuts and fits together. Students will all create the same flower to the right and are encouraged to consider this workshop a process workshop and not expect to finish the piece in two days.
Fee $225.00 + $50.00 materials
