Mosaics are a traditional craft which you can’t just pull off in a half hour, they take time, patience and planning to create - so if you are having a sociable and creative get together why not build a design around one of my ceramics pieces - it gets proceedings off to a good start and ensures a wonderful result. It also keeps the activity to a manageable time frame (and leaves plenty of time for chatting and supping!). Depending on your choice the activity will be 1.5 to 3 hours, there is still plenty of work for you to do!
There is lots of choice - from cats, dogs, flowers, peacock.... and more being added every month. Bespoke creations can be catered for with notice, also lettering, using my scrabble sized tiles and individual letters.
A zoom call, (to one or any number of locations if you are not meeting as a group), will help to get you started with your projects. Once you have started working I can check back in after 1/2 an hour or so to make sure everything is going well.
There is also an online access to some tips and techniques to view in advance, including a walk through a complete project - though it may not be the exact one you are making.
The £100 payment covers a choice of kits with special 'group' prices - size small 105mm x 105mm (£14) or medium150 x 105mm (£18) or large 150 x 150 (£20).
This should set you up for a happy couple of hours to produce fun artworks to be proud of.
Instructions are supplied online to help you complete your design, (link will be emailed when you choose your kit). The projects will take about 1 hour to 2 hours each, depending on your previous experience/choice of kit. A pair of nippers is included in the box. Plenty of extra tiles are supplied allowing for error/practice.
A variety of colour ways are offered, it just depends what has come out of the kiln, always lovely, always complementary.
These unglazed ceramic tiles are not suitable for grouting - but tucked in close together they do not need any extra finish. For indoor use only.
Elevate the finished design by popping it into a small frame (can be supplied at extra cost).
Zoom per hour £25 (you can choose not to have zoom call and put towards kits).
5 small kits or 4 medium kits or
4 large kits (£5 supplement).
Any content/numbers/kit size can be arranged, which might affect final payment.
(Extra kits can be added)
2 weeks notice please.
Everything is supplied in the kit, including nippers each - you will need some friends, a big table and perhaps a glass of wine.
