A night (or morning/afternoon!) on the tiles: a 2.5 hour taster mosaic course



Valley Craft Studio is a fully equipped studio, set in the heart of picturesque Constable Country on the Essex/Suffolk border. Founded by Fiona, with her art degree and years of crafting experience, the studio was set up as a space for herself and others to create beautiful artwork. Here at Valley Craft Studio we offer you the chance to get away from it all while trying your hand at creating something unique. Our courses offer you (and your friends) the perfect opportunity to escape and relax. Why not extend the relaxation and spend the whole day in the local area - Flatford (setting of John Constable's 'The Hay Wain') is just 2 minutes’ drive from the studio. Here you can soak up the natural beauty of the surrounding area and be inspired for your mosaic masterpiece. We offer a short taster course where you can create a set of beautiful coasters and try your hand at the art of mosaic. No previous mosaic experience is necessary. You will leave with your completed coasters, plus the necessary materials and instructions to grout them at home. (We do offer a grouting and return service for a nominal fee.) Our short mosaic course will guide you through the complete process of creating your mosaic - from initial design, using the specialist tools through to completion. Courses are listed as running on specific days but other days can sometimes be available on request. Minimum of 2 persons needed for course to run.

What's included in the price?

All tools and materials are provided. If you have something specific which you would like to incorporate into your design (crockery, tiles, jewellery, buttons, etc,) then please bring it along. Bear in mind that we are creating coasters so materials need to be fairly flat or there will be some spillages! It's great if you already have an idea of what you want to do, but if you don't then we can look at it together! Lots of tea, coffee and cake are provided.
