Mosaic course with a KIT, using hand painted tiles by Anne Cardwell



New course launching at £40 - £5 off for January 2021.
A brand new course - a 'course in a box' in conjunction with online tuition. This kit provides everything you need to make a small mosaic at home, (with the exception of your nippers). The tutor, Anne Cardwell, an experienced mosaic artist, has been delivering mosaic courses since 2002 and online since 2018. (To find out more about Anne as a teacher visit GOLD 'course reviews' on this website).

The kit provides colourful hand painted tiles and a ceramic design (in this instance a duck etc), along with various *colourways of manufactured matt ceramic tiles. Please message to choose your colour.
If you would like a second board and some extra tiles, please message at time of purchase - an extra £12.00, can be paid later.

Online videos provide general information about mosaic making (setting you up for more ambitious future projects), showing in detail the easy process of how to cut tiles using nippers - about sticking and placing your tiles and then the entire project is documented - from laying the first tile to grouting the finished masterpiece. A downloadable written instruction is also available for easy reference. A code to access the lesson will be emailed after your purchase, the kit will be posted - postage to UK only. .

Additional zoom consultancy lessons can be purchased to help future ideas become reality. (£25 per hour, or £45 for 3 x 30 minute zoom sessions)

Of wheeled nippers,Leponitt are the preferred brand, approx £30 - (they do cut ceramic as well as glass). Other less expensive but quite acceptable - are Vitrex and Fitools, just not as excellent for long term use, £22. Order from Ebay, Amazon or email to add to your order.

You should also wear goggles (not included) .

Don't forget the ceramics are hand painted and fired, therefore may vary a little from the illustration. (Only in a good way!)

Buying this kit could be your gateway to a lifetime of hours of sticking and nipping, mosaic is very addictive partly because of the wonderful materials and also because it is just amazing watching your picture emerge piece by piece, it's very easy to start and very hard to put down, just one more row... just another - Relaxing, mesmerising, useful and fun!

Finished mosaic measures 150 x 150mm on a board with a depth of 6mm. Extra boards and tiles can be added, please email.

SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES with supervision. (I would recommend secondary school age upwards.)

Suitable for placing indoors only. (For placing outdoors use a waterproof base, eg tile, metal, plastic, glass, slate - the ceramic pieces and tiles are completely waterproof and frost resistant).

*NB Due to Brexit there some supply delays from Europe - which might mean a change of colour in the manufacturer tiles.

What's included in the price?

Included - your choice of hand painted ceramic, hand painted edging tiles, matt ceramic tiles, adhesive, grout, mixer, mask, gloves.

The response to your request to purchase a course is usually on the same day, often immediately. A code will be sent to give access to the course, kits are posted - UK only but if you are located elsewhere, please message me.
