Mosaic in a day at Cowshed Creative in the Lake District National Park near Kendal and Windermere



At Cowshed Creative in the Lake District, we run an extensive range of art, craft and heritage workshops in our beautifully converted art studio. MOSAIC: Join us for a fun and relaxing day learning this art form. Create a colourful plaque to hang outside or to decorate a wall indoors, a trivet for those hot pots on your table or brighten up coffee breaks with your own mosaic tray. Treat yourself to a great day out and take home an original mosaic of your own. No previous experience needed. Kay Sandham Banks studied Graphic Design at Carlisle Art College & Trent Poly. Having lived in Tooting for over 25 years, she now divides her time between her native Cumbria and London. As well as creating some impressive Mosaic in her London studio, Kay has also been the lead artist on a variety of mosaic murals, both as a designer and in a teaching role. Her most recent commission is for South Lakes Council. She has extensive experience teaching Art and Design, Photography and Design Technology to a wide range of age groups in Tower Hamlets, Kennington and Wandsworth as well as teaching for the Camberwell Probation Service. Kay has also recently completed a PGCTA in Therapeutic Arts. The workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a traditional converted Lakeland barn at Browfoot Farm. The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere valley. Make it a special break and stay in one of our luxury camping pods on the farm. Check our website for availability.
