Outdoor mosaic workshops - 1 day with Rachel Hyde at Creative with Nature studio Todmorden West Yorkshire

Craft courses at Creative with Nature Todmorden West Yorkshire


On slate, or bring your own stone, learn mosaic techniques with Mosaic artist Rachel Hyde to create a unique piece suitable to stay outdoors.

You will have a choice of various different templates to choose from, work on a house number, a dragonfly, tree, a hare, cockerel, etc or come with your own idea and let Rachel guide you to create something you're proud of.

This is a very popular workshop, we have been running it for over 4 years at our Creative with Nature studio in Todmorden West Yorkshire.

We're only a 2 minute walk from the train station in the centre of town and there are lots of lovely, locally run AirB&B's in the town. For a list of places to stay see our website.

We have a great indoor and outdoor market, lots of places to eat locally, some fab independent shops and if you like walking we have some of the best walks in the UK right on our doorstep. You wouldn't believe we are only 30 minutes away by train from Manchester city centre.

This is a relaxed and fun course with a skilled, friendly teacher.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All courses include materials and use of tools.

We also supply tea & coffee.

I had a lovely day with a friendly group of ladies and was impressed to have a completed piece of work at the end of the day! Lots of choice of glass and Rachael was very helpful and encouraging. I am really keen to try out more mosaic projects now.

You know when you have a good day, a really good day….? Yeh, few and far between at the movement with Covid, but not today. Our day came with an abundance of good, thanks to Laura, at Todmorden.

Myself and my wife enjoyed and learnt so much in such a short time, about the mosaic preparing, laying and grouting processes; coming out with a lovely mosaic plaque for our home.

Laura let us decide events and we all went the flow. I will be recommending Laura’s mosaic experience to both family and friends.

Well done Laura - we truly had a day to remember ❤️

Very good flow, teaching style, very enjoyable. Laura is very helpful, responsive and approachable.
Only thing is, I arrived second to last, and then the last person and we didn’t know anyone’s names. Not sure if we’d missed introductions.
Thank you

Response from Creative with Nature:

thanks so much marie! glad you had a good day. joe. xx

I attended my first mosaic course at the weekend and was really impressed. The workshop space has a positive energy and the building contains a wonder world of inspiring art pieces and materials.
Laura's teaching style, being both supportive and empowering, makes for a relaxed and enjoyable learning experience. Met some lovely people ...and we all created something to be proud of!. Brilliant way to spend a Sunday.

Response from Creative with Nature:

Thanks Heather! yes Laura is a real asset to the business and town: ) Really happy you enjoyed your day. Joe. xxx

Louise Swift - - #26701

Loved it! First time doing Mosaic and both my mum & I managed to make 3 house numbers in our day, Christmas pressies sorted! It really was torture to have to stop! The cellar proved a treasure trove of extra bits & pieces of broken bits, which I preferred to the factory squares we had to begin with. Laura was great, let us get on with it but there when we needed her. Loved it, and would love to do it all again!

Response from Creative with Nature:

brilliant! well done and thanks for leaving a review. xx

Kat - - #26700

Laura is an encouraging and supportive teacher who helped me produce a mosaic I’m really proud of. Creative with Nature is a great welcoming and inspiring space in lovely Todmorden. Highly recommended.

Response from Creative with Nature:

thanks for the lovely feedback! xx

Heather Croft - - #23530

I learnt more from Laura in an hour than what I’ve ever learnt from books or you tube on mosaics. Clear direction with a wonderful vocabulary Laura gave everyone encouragement and detailed knowledge of what tools and ingredients to use. An amazing day. Thank you so much. Will come back for the silver clay course.

Response from Creative with Nature:

Thanks heather! Lovely review 😊 I'll pass onto Laura. Joe. Xx
