About the Course

The mosaic workshop takes place in a quiet studio, set within the historic town of Shrewsbury. The workshop is led by Lindsey, who has worked in 3 and 2D design, along with many years experience of teaching art, design and mosaics. During this one day workshop you will learn how to apply a range of tiles using the direct method onto an MDF base. There will be a large collection of tile material to choose from but please feel free to bring material from home that you would like to include. You will learn how to create colourful designs, use tile nippers safely, and grout your finished piece. There is a choice of bases from hearts, coasters or a trivet. The maximum group size is four people and the workshop is for adults. The day starts at 10.00am and finishes at 4.00pm, so please try to get to the studio by 9.45am for a prompt start. The aim is to explore this fascinating craft in a relaxed and friendly environment.

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.

What's included in the price?

There will be tea, coffee and cake (of course). Just bring your own packed lunch, although there are some great local cafes close by catering for all tastes. Bring an apron or wear clothes you don't mind getting grout on, as mosaic making is a bit messy! There is a NCP car park just around the corner with early bird parking if you get there before 9.30am. There is no parking at the studio. The studio is situated in a very uneven cobbled courtyard and we do not have toilets for disabled workshop attendees at the moment.

Want to review this course?

I absolutely loved my one day workshop with Lindsey. I had no prior experience at all but had always fancied trying my hand at mosaic. Lindsey was the perfect tutor, explaining everything I needed to know but encouraging me to learn practically by making my own piece under her guidance. I am so happy with the piece I made and my family can't believe it. I feel confident enough to have a go on my own at some basic pieces and will definitely go back to Lindsey for another workshop as I progress and become more ambitious!

Really interesting day at Lyndsey's beautiful workshop in historical centre of Shrewsbury. Lots of help and advice through the day. Nudged me in the right direction when artistic inspiration failed me! Lyndsey demonstrated grouting, cutting, use of tools, safety. Lots of examples of Lyndsey's own work and
I was able to watch her work in a fabulous piece of her own. I loved it. The time flew. Like being in another world. Lovely place. I brought home a piece of my own to finish which I am delighted with. I hope to go back soon.
