About the Course


A weekend mosaic course introducing the basic cutting, laying and grouting techniques required to make a successful mosaic. The course will focus on the direct method and students will be encouraged to develop both their practical and creative skills.

Students will be encouraged to work from their own design and do some research prior to the workshop, please bring your design inspiration and ideas with you. A range of specialist books and design resources will be available for use at the studio. Students should leave the course having completed a mosaic and gained a good grounding in basic mosaic making skills.

(Course numbers are limited to facilitate a quality experience and one to one teaching and minimum numbers are required for the courses to run, so please book early!)

Joanna runs Edinburgh Mosaic Studio and specialises in the design and fabrication of mosaic artworks for domestic and public spaces as well as producing smaller scale mosaic artworks for exhibition.
