About the Course
This workshop introduces you to the skills required to make a mosaic using slate. You will learn about which substrates and adhesives to use, different ways of preparing slate for use in a mosaic, and the variety of ways in which slate can be laid within a mosaic.
During the workshop you will make your own mosaic from slate, choosing from a range of materials provided by the instructor. This will include different types of slate as well as some glass to add in as highlights.
No previous experience of mosaics is needed. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners, as well as those who have some experience but want to try using slate.
The class is limited to 4 students, so you can be sure of plenty of individual attention from the instructor.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

It was an amazing day of learning and also of being creative. It’s a lovely intimate environment and with all 4 of us who attended being of varying levels of experience it made for a friendly and idea filled room! Rachel is very attentive and friendly and also very knowledgable.....so good that I’ve booked my next one!!

The Slate mosaic class was excellent.
Rachel was a great tutor and the set up was super with a good range of materials to work with help on hand and inspiration from many of Rachels pieces.

Rachel was fantastic and very welcoming. Everything we needed was provided and were spoiled for choice with so many options of different slate and glass available. Rachel’s instruction was excellent, and she was happy to give as much or as little input as you wanted. Would definitely recommend, thanks again!

Thoroughly enjoyed this course. Rachel was great and gave as much or as little direction as each individual wanted. She is very knowledgeable and has a lovely encouraging manner. Though this was my first time working with slate I was delighted with the tile I produced.

This was my first time having a go at Mosaics, after wanting to try this craft for quite a while!! And I wasn’t disappointed!! Rachel was very knowledgable, patient and encouraging- I really enjoyed my morning, a real step out of routine for me & I am delighted with my own piece of mosaic which is happily hanging on my wall!!
Thank you Rachel!!

This was my second workshop, because I enjoyed the first so much! Rachel is a knowledgeable and patient teacher, and taught and supported the skills needed for all participants to try out different techniques and leave with a beautiful mosaic. There were a huge range of materials available, and the workshop is in a lovely setting, surrounded by beautiful examples of Rachel’s own work for inspiration and examples. Cups of tea and homemade cake were a bonus!
