Over the years I have taught various workshops. Topics include beginning and intermediate level double reverse, direct with thinset, Introduction to Hammer and Hardie (pictured) and sculptural substrate construction.
In the new Bend Studio!
Just completed the first hammer and hardie workshop. I am open to teaching more workshops in the future, including additional topics, such as beginning mosaic in the double reverse method and creating your own sculptural substrates for mosaic. Here is the info for H&H.
Hammer and Hardie Workshop
2 days, 9 am – 4 pm, with an hour break for lunch
4 students max.
Students will receive detailed instruction on how to cut materials using the hammer and hardie. Using stone, marble and smalti, students will gain skills to cut more quickly with a minimal amount of waste. Specific characteristics of materials such as the hardness or structure of the stone and smalti will be discussed, aiding in how best to chop down the natural materials. Information about proper maintenance, sharpening and care of the hammer and hardie tools will be presented. This workshop is for beginning students or those who may already have some experience but would like to brush up on their techniques. You are welcome to bring your own hammers and materials if you wish.
Materials such as smalti, marble and stone are included. The materials you cut are yours to take home.
