About the Course
Beginners – China Mosaic Workshop
Over 5 hours you will create your own ‘square heart’ plaque, pot stand or similar using broken china, mosaic tiles and reclaimed materials.
The workshop will go through
• which surfaces are best to mosaic upon
• Discover the challenges working with recycled materials and how to overcome them
• tools needed
• grouting demonstration
Included in the course is everything you need for the project including a 15cm square MDF base, or similar sized shape, china, glue, other reclaimed materials and the use of our tools. Participants are welcome to bring their own china or embellishments to use if they so wish, it’s always nice to include something personal.
The mosaic glue has to be allowed to dry for 24 hours before grouting so there will be a demonstration at the end of the workshop of how to grout your piece and you will be given a bag of powdered grout along with instructions to take home to finish your artwork. Alternatively you can pay an extra charge and have your mosaic grouted and finished for you, you can decide on the day.
This workshop will be run in small groups and is intended for beginners and those who want to try using china to mosaic. There is no need to worry about how artistic you are the most important thing is to relax and have fun whilst learning something new.

I absolutely loved this course. I had never attempted this before and so have a real sense of achievement. It was fun and I had a super day. Great teaching and very patient with beginners. Highly recommended.

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:Thank you so much, we're really glad you enjoyed your time with us.
We had such a fun morning and we were all delighted with the results. I consider myself without any creative genes but was happy with my first attempt at a mosaic heart. Di and Pat were great teachers and very patient!
