About the Course

You will make a mosaic plaque or heart on this course which will take place in Historic Higherford Mill, Barrowford. A hub of creativity housing lots of different Artists. I aim to provide an inspiring and uplifting workshop with fuel for ideas taken from the large range of mosaic tesserae provided. Ideal for total beginners or the more experienced. For other mosaic projects please check out my other pages.

This course will run on demand for two or more, so if you have a friend you would like to do the course with please get in touch.

We aim to have a individually creative day, everyone will be encouraged to develop their own design. Inspiration can be drawn from items brought on the day, looking through the mosaic books, or developing an existing idea.

We will spend the day designing and sticking various tesserae to the board. Along the way learning about techniques and materials, different potential projects and how to cut and shape the tiles safely and tools needed.

I have been running mosaic workshops for over ten years, have a teaching qualification and have worked for Cartmel Adult Education as a mosaic tutor. Until recently I have sold my mosaics on Not on The High Street.

Please contact me for any further information you feel you may need about this workshop.

What's included in the price?

All materials are included in the course, including a large selection of varied tesserae, plywood board, and bag of grout with full instructions. To finish at home. Course suitable for complete beginners.

A small plaque will be made on the day (grouted at home) which can be wall hung, free standing or used as a pot stand. Some of the interesting tesserae available on the day includes, vintage china, buttons, beads, glass, tiles, shells and jewellery. I encourage everyone to bring something along of their own to add, some of the more interesting items that folk have brought along are real human teeth! ( dentist) and an old Timex watch.

Drinks and biscuits will be served through the day.

Please bring an apron!

Excellent tuition and support given by Catherine, who was obviously experienced and enthusiastic in mosaics. All resources were provided and once we had chosen our designs and been shown what to do , we were able to continue independently asking for help if needed. It was a busy but very enjoyable day in a lovely interesting venue.

Thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. Left with the skills to know how to do the basics. Met interesting people although all engrossed in our work so did not engage too much. Catherine was very knowledgeable, hands-on and explained things in an easy to understand way as well as demonstrating practically. Huge variety of material to work with. Definitely recommend this workshop to others.

I would highly recommend Catherine's 1 day mosaic workshop to anyone wanting to have a go but feeling a bit nervous. As a beginner, Catherine made me feel really welcome and relaxed, providing the right pace for everyone in the group whatever their ability. She had vast array of materials for us to work with and we all had a fun, fabulous, creative day! I will be coming back for more!

I had a fabulous day at Catherine's mosaic workshop. It was so informative and I now feel confident to create my own mosaics. Catherine provided us with some fantastic materials and ideas to work with. The end results are gorgeous. I'll definitely be going to another workshop.

Very nice relaxed day. All materials supplied and books to look through for ideas. Teaching was very thorough and we all left with a completed mosaic and instructions on how to grout it once it had dried thoroughly.5

I took a mosaic course on Saturday and was very impressed with Catherine our teacher, as a complete beginner I wasn't sure what to expect but was soon put at ease, Catherine had lots of idea's and lots of patience.
I made a sunflower amazingly it turned out ok, I am definately inspired to do more mosaic work and wished I lived nearer to Nelson and Catherine classes..
Having come all the way from Cumbria and not finding a class nearer to home, it was worth the drive.

Thank you very much for a really enjoyable day.
kind regards
Anne

A very enjoyable day. Loved the hands on teaching and getting as messy as you like without having to worry about the furniture, which is the only way if you learn from a book! Learnt a lot about the different mosaic techniques and being able to experiment to find your own preferences is a definite advantage of doing the course. Catherine is very talented and knows her art inside out, plus a very nice lady. She made the class warm and friendly.

I would highly recommend Catherine's 1day mosaic workshop. Catherine was wonderful, creative & extremely knowledgeable. This workshop exceeded my expectations. I now feel that I have the knowledge needed to begin to create my own mosaics at home. I particularly enjoyed working with the vast array of materials that Catherine supplied on the workshop. A truly fabulous creative day!
