Mosaic Making Workshop - St Albans

X

Description

Come join me Audrey (mosaicist) in the Roman City of St Albans for a relaxing 4 hours of mosaic making creativity. During this mosaic workshop you will design and create a mosaic suitable for outdoors. You will learn each step of the mosaic making process and all materials will be provided.

I like to run my workshops in a way that people aren't restricted to just one design, I prefer that students come and create a design that is personal to them. In delivering my workshops in this way it means that the thinking and planning is done before you attend your workshop. I ask all students to think about what they would like to create beforehand. Research some designs and have an idea before we meet on the workshop day. I am always available to discuss your design via email or on the phone and will support you in gaining the template you would like. In doing this it means that you will have optimum time on the workshop day to get going with your chosen design. You'll be amazed by how quickly 4 hours fly by when creating a mosaic!

So once you book, have a think and feel free to email or call me to discuss your ideas.

The dimensions of the bases for a 4 hour workshop are as follows:

20cm x 20cm - square
25cm x 15cm - rectangle
20cm - circle

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and for those who have experience in mosaic making. The workshop is for adults but also open to children who are keen to attend with a participating adult and who will be happy to participate for the duration (guide age 9 years+).

During the workshop you will be guided in using wheeled tile nippers to snip your glass and side biter tile nippers to snip ceramic tiles. There will also be a selection of off cut stained glass pieces and the opportunity to use the score and snap tools to cut your glass.

At the class there will also be the opportunity to purchase one of my mosaic kits and tile nippers should you decide you wish to carry on your journey of mosaic making :)

Covid Safety: Until specified by the government we will be required to wear a face covering while inside the workshop space. Tables will be spaced accordingly and hand sanitiser will be provided before entering and throughout. Equipment will be sanitised beforehand and throughout and each participant will have a complete set of tools needed to create their mosaic.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Coffee/tea and biscuits are provided throughout the workshop. You may also want to bring along a packed lunch as we run over lunch time, or treat yourself to something lovely from the Lazy Llama Café which is on site!

All materials for you to create your mosaic are provided at the class. Should you not complete your design at the session you will be able to take away all the tiles you will need to complete your design at home.

Really enjoyable project, posted out really quickly in a lovely gift box.

Easy to do, didnt take long, and is a great size, bigger than I expected. I just need to decide where to hang it!

Really enjoyed making these mats. It was the first time I had worked on a mosaic and it was great fun. The kit arrived really quickly and was beautifully packaged. The instructions were easy to follow. Only difficulty was choosing the colour design. Would highly recommend for a complete beginner.

Response from Montet Designs:

Hi Penny

I'm so pleased to hear you've enjoyed creating your first mosaics! :) Thanks for your lovely feedback.

My son bought me a voucher as a birthday present. Due to the lockdown there were no courses to attend so I decided to send for this kit and I am so glad I did. Lovely colours and the kit contains everything you need including comprehensive instructions. Will enjoy doing this sat in the garden when the weather allows. Will also look for other kits/workshops from Audrey.

I bought the coaster mosaic kit for a friend. I haven’t been able to pass it on yet, but I’m sure she will enjoy making the coasters. Very prompt delivery too.

This kit is very pleasantly packed, looks lovely, is exactly what I’d hoped for and I’m very pleased with it.
I bought it for a gift which I am yet to give.

I’d suggest the picture and words advertising this kit state that it is for 4 coasters as that is great value and clearly affects folks decision when purchasing.

Response from Montet Designs:

Hi Annette

I'm so pleased you're happy with the coaster kit!! I hope the recipient enjoys creating them 😊 and I appreciate your feedback, thank you.

The Unicorn Mosaic kit arrived nice and quickly and was received eagerly by myself who had seen the kit in the Saturday Telegraph.

The unicorn was so well photographed I just couldn't resist the beautiful colours of the pearlescent tiles even though I felt a bit of an imposter being rather older than the age bracket for who the kit was suggested ! 🤭

As soon as the kit arrived I was on the case and completed the unicorn within 24 hours of arriving. My daughter (31) also got in on the act and took charge of the two stars included in the kit...so we both enjoyed the kit very much. Have still to really tidy up the edges and polish up the tiles...but essentially its done.

Thank you!

A winner!

Response from Montet Designs:

Hi Caroline

Bought this kit for our 9 yo granddaughter.
Audrey at Montet Designs was extremely helpful and kindly put a birthday greeting in the package which she then promptly forwarded directly to the birthday girl. Still awaiting feedback out I know she will be delighted with it - she is unicorn mad!
Excellent service.

Response from Montet Designs:

Thank for your lovely feedback Jim. I hope your granddaughter has a wonderful time creating her very own unicorn!

Best wishes

I bought 3 different mosaic kits for Christmas presents (elephants, hearts and coasters). They arrived the next day very well packaged and I think the recipients will be delighted. It’s nice to find something a bit different and affordable which should provide hours of enjoyment, and I look forward to seeing the finished results.

Response from Montet Designs:

Thanks for your lovely feedback Lesley! I'm really pleased you were happy with your purchases and I hope the recipients enjoy creating their mosaics over the Christmas holidays 😊

I purchases the Seaglass coasters for my first attempt at mosaic crafting. I really enjoyed creating the patterns on each coaster and the completion of the finished article.
I have already purchased my next kit, the Unicorn. I am really looking forward to starting it very soon.
