Grouting a completed mosaic can be intimidating. Grout impacts the appearance of your art, it can appear tricky to mix, installation criteria must be taken into account, and there are so many choices of grouts and assorted additives your head may spin. In this workshop you will learn priceless grouting tips and techniques.
We will discuss and DEMONSTRATE different grout types, additives, colorants, safety and environmental issues, cleaning and sealing and multicolor grouting. There are many techniques to fix a grout disaster and tricks and techniques will be shown. THIS WORKSHOP COVERS IT ALL!!
Students are encouraged to bring an un-grouted mosaic to complete during the workshop, or a piece that they have grouted and are not pleased with the results.
