Introduction to mosaic making with Mossy Mosaic
Immerse yourself in mosaic making on this introductory workshop with Jacky Cox from Mossy Mosaic. On this introduction to mosaic making workshop you will create two mosaics using vitreous ('swimming pool') tiles, learning methods you can do at home. You will begin by designing, cutting your tiles and making a beautiful hanging heart. While the glue is drying ready for grouting, Jacky will show you how to create a simple, non-grouted drinks coaster. You will learn about how to mosaic safely, how to cut tiles using a wheeled nipper, explore design ideas and grout your hanging heart. You will take home two finished mosaic pieces, and have learned all you need to know to start your mosaicing journey. Mosaicing fits in perfectly with our vision of a world where recycling, repurposing and upcycling is the norm. Jacky works with a variety of materials including glass, recycled crockery and natural materials like slate and sea glass. In her other workshops you can explore working with these other materials and creating more lovely mosaics for your home, or as special, unique gifts.
