Mosaic for Beginners
Contact course provider
About the Course
This three hour workshop is aimed at the beginner.
If you're not sure whether mosaic is the craft for you, then this 3 hour 'taster' will give you the opportunity to find out.
My small group workshops are aimed at giving you, not only the skills, knowledge and experience to create a mosaic picture, but also three hours of 'you' time!
By the end of the three hour workshop you will be able to:
Identify suitable substrates (surfaces) for mosaic
Identify suitable tesserae (tiles)
Choose correct adhesive for a variety of applications
Cut tesserae safely
Tesselate your tesserae
After watching grouting demonstration, take home mosaic and grout to complete.
The session starts at 10 am and finishes at 1 pm
We have an afternoon session which starts at 2pm - mosaic pendant making. When you book both sessions on the same day, I include a home made vegetable soup for lunch, free of charge.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. The voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Everything is included. Use our equipment and basic materials to create an 18cm square mosaic which can be used as a trivet or as a picture.
A brew and a biscuit (or SW friendly snack!) is always on hand to help keep your energy up.
Upgrades optional for additional 'bling'.
I recently did the Mosaic for the Garden course, which was fantastic. Debbie provided lots of encouragement and ideas whilst letting us choose our own thing to design and create. The studio is very well kitted out and the small group numbers meant we all got lots of personal attention when needed. I enjoyed the session so much I hope to go back in the near future for another go.
