Creating Architectural Mosaics with Cathleen Newsham
*New Date: Saturday March 18, 10am-5pm & Sunday March 19, 10am-3pm, 2017
If you love mosaics and are ready to tackle installations but don’t know where to start, this is the workshop for you! Taking on an architectural mosaic project can be a scary prospect! In this two day workshop, Cathleen Newsham, founder of Modern Mosaic Arts, will try to calm your nerves by showing you her tried and true techniques and sharing her experiences from 17 years of architectural mosaic creation. Detailing the initial process of pricing, presenting and designing, as well as sourcing, fabrication and installing, she will reveal her secrets to a successful mosaic installation. You will get an inside look at how a mural is made and how to turn your love of mosaic into a business that can be profitable and fun!
This is a professional development workshop, so you will not be completing a mosaic. You will take home two small ungrouted test mosaics that will allow you to try the techniques we will be discussing, enabling you to feel confident in your abilities before starting a project of your own. The goal of this class is to listen and learn, not to create an art piece.

Here is what some of Cathleen’s past students have to say about this workshop:
“I have taken an Architectural Mosaic workshop with Cathleen Newsham over the past weekend, through Mosaic Oasis in Arlington MA. Cathleen provided a wealth of practical, applied knowledge from how to price out a potential job, to seeking out clientele, to mosaic installation that is durable in the New England climate. I feel very equipped to take on an architectural installation job since taking the workshop. Thank you, Cathleen!”
“I took the class and really loved it, Cathleen is so knowledgeable about the topic and has an endless amount of experience! It was so great to be hearing about supplies, vendors and more that actually work and we can feel confident using. Thanks Cathleen, I have a meeting with the staff at the spiritual center next week about their outside mosaic and feel so much more confident about the project!”
“Thank you for taking the time this weekend to share all you have learned about large mosaic installations. I feel inspired and it was all very helpful to me. And thank you for the amazing notebook chocked full of so much great info!”
“I really enjoyed meeting you and taking your class this past weekend. I learned great tips that are relevant to my current project. Thank you for your advice on my installation!”
