About the Course

This workshop is an ideal introduction to mosaic for beginners.

Learning the art of piqueassiette you will create your own mosaic using broken china, mosaic tiles and reclaimed materials.

I will guide you though the process of nipping old china plates to create your own little work of art. Over your time at the workshop you will learn
• which surfaces are best to mosaic upon
• the challenges working with recycled materials and how to overcome them
• how to use tools to cut and shape
• how to grout

Included in the course is everything you need for the project including a MDF base, china, glue, other reclaimed materials and the use of my 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.

This workshop is intended for beginners and is run in small groups. No need to worry about how artistic you are the most important thing is to relax and have fun whilst learning something new.

I run this workshop from the lovely Cleve Lodge in Long Eaton, close to junction 25 of the M1 which has plenty of on site free parking.

Thank you again Hazel!

Had a really great time today, and made a pot-stand with a china wave pattern - beginning to think I may be artistic after all. This course is so enjoyable. Thank you, Diane and Pat.

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!
