A lot of people had been asking me lately why I had stopped offering my mosaic workshops... The answer is that since January 2017 (so for about a year and a half), I had completely devoted my time and efforts to establishing a non-profit mosaic project called Dahshur Mosaics with my wonderful partner Charlotte Sullivan. Now that it's up and running and needs less of our time, I began redirecting my attention to my Abstract Mosaic Workshops. This time, however, I decided to take a daring leap and conduct my workshops from home rather than from art centers around Cairo :)
This workshop was a completely new approach to mosaic art. Students were expected to have completed the “Introduction to Contemporary Mosaics” workshop or a similar course in mosaics. They were encouraged to explore with a wide range of material ranging from stones and pebbles to glass and ceramics and were allowed to unleash their creative potential through simple steps that lead them to create a unique piece of abstract art. It was really fun and liberating to see my students create genuine pieces of art that they created themselves without any drawing at all!
