    Bethel Horizon's Art Ventures & Eric Rattan
    Spring Green, WI
    Handmade Tile, Mosaic 10 x 10 Mural

    tile and mosaic workshop

    Bethel Horizon's Art Ventures and Eric Rattan offered a four day ceramic mosaic tile mural workshop. Attendees executed an approximately 10'x10' wall mural, starting with wet clay for fabricating the tiles, firing, applying the cement board substrate, then mudding and grouting to achieve a completed ceramic mural.

    Eric Rattan combined the hands-on experience of tile making with lectures on it's technical challenges, shrink testing, warpage, frost free considerations etc. Similarly the project offered attendees a hands-on installation experience combined with a lecture on the many technical considerations required to achieve a permanent "1000 year plan" finished tile mural.

    Bethel Horizons is located near Spring Green Wisconsin, in the beautiful rolling hills of the driftless region in southwestern Wisconsin. It is located approximately eleven miles from Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin home. Attendees were able to extend their trip by a day to tour this architectural landmark.

    The $690.00 workshop fee included five nights of lodging, all meals, tuition (including materials), and transportation to and from Madison's Dane County Airport.

    Dress was casual with work clothes recommended for the hands-on portion. Attendees with skin sensitivities were advised to bring rubber gloves. No other tools were required. The workshop was open to all skill levels. Registration was on a first come first served basis.

    Cancellations for a full fee refund required thirty days notice. The workshop was limited to 15 attendees or fewer. To reserve a space attendees sent a $690.00 check to Bethel Horizons, 312 Wisconsin Ave Madison WI, 53703. Checks were made out to Bethel Horizons, Art Ventures.

    Members of the Society of American Mosaic Artists, Tile Heritage Foundation, Handmade Tile Association LLC, or the Wisconsin Handmade Tile Guild, were offered a $25.00 discount which was deducted from the $690.00.
