During this masterclass, Paulina will guide your imagination to create a relief mosaic, all in slate (Dutch: leisteen). You will cut, break and chip old slate tiles to extract their beauty and compose a contemporary mosaic. You will have a 20cm x 30cm rectangle to express your creativity.

 

Each piece of slate will be cut with a professional nipper or an electric tile wet saw and then sticked with coloured mortar.

 

Please remember to bring your smile and an old T-shirt or apron.
