You will create your mosaic in reverse on brown paper before transferring your design onto a 40cm x 40cm paving slab. Informal and relaxed atmosphere, this course is suitable for absolute beginners to those wanting to improve and develop their skills and learn a new technique. This will be a small class size of 4 people.
Award winning artist Julie Vernon runs small workshops at her Nottinghamshire studio. In this 2 day course you will be introduced to a wide range of cutting techniques and materials to create a fully weatherproof, outdoor paving slab.
Day 1 Preparing your design, drawing out on brown paper. Cutting and sticking mosaic tiles in reverse to work on your design.
Day 2 completing your design on paper in the morning. In the afternoon we will be transferring your design to the paving slab using weatherproof adhesive.
