Mosaic Workshop with Christine Hume
June 18 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Due to COVID-19, we are unable to offer our Artist-in-Residence program on location along the shores of Lake Rosseau as in previous years. This year we will be offering virtual workshops in various forms (via zoom, live stream, or instructional video) during the week each artist was originally scheduled. These videos will be posted on our AIR page and in the event descriptions
Christine Hume took art courses during University and has a diploma in Commercial Art & Advertising from Algonquin College. After more than 30 years in a marketing and advertising career, she is now enjoying doing mosaic art and exploring what else “life after work” has to offer.
Christine’s creative journey with glass started in the 1980’s – taking a stained-glass course with her Mom. A small glass mandala created by her Mom is a reminder of this medium that comes to life when the light shines through!
In 2013 in Montreal, Christine stumbled upon Mosaikashop at the Italian Festival. She has since taken several mosaic courses in Montreal, Brockville, Almonte and has travelled to Ravenna, Italy to take a workshop in the traditional mosaic method.
In particular she loves to create grouted glass on glass mosaics, and also creates tile mosaics, mosaics on stone and mosaic ornaments. Her studio is in Almonte, Ontario.
Some of her mosaic work can be seen on Instagram
