In connection with the exhibition Parall(elles): A History of Women in Design, the Museum’s School for the Arts has teamed up with Montreal-based community workshop Les Affûtés to offer a variety of courses that teach handicraft skills! Please note that these courses are given in French.

During this 3-hour workshop, Ricardo, a professional and passionate mosaicist, will guide us through all the necessary steps to create a mosaic. After a presentation of this art, we will take the time to create a personalized design and choose the colors, in order to create a unique mosaic mirror! We will also discuss the appropriate tools and the cutting of the pieces with pliers. Several techniques for placing and installing the tesserae will be discussed before moving on to gluing and finalizing the project.



The mirror sizes available are: a 9 x 9″ square with a 6 x 6″ mirror, or an 8 x 10″ rectangle with a 5 x 7″ mirror.

Skills required: none, except to let your creativity run free.

Materials: All the basic materials are supplied and included in the registration price.

Reservation terms: Enrollment is limited to 10 participants per course. Workshops with fewer than five participants will be cancelled.

Cancellation policy: Refunds are available in full up to seven business days before the first class, minus a $50 administration fee. Withdrawals less than seven business days before the activity begins are non-refundable unless due to exceptional circumstances, in which case participants are reimbursed in full.
