About the Course

Enjoy the ancient art of mosaic in a stunning contemporary location. At the heart of the Jurassic Coast lies the Isle of Portland. White Stones is a unique creative space, offering delicious food, local art, workshops and accommodation.

David works from his studio in Portland producing unique hand finished sculpture in a variety of materials. His courses offer a modern, creative free approach to the ancient art of mosaic. Using improvised tesserae, students will be shown basic cutting and application techniques to create a personal abstract piece of mosaic art to take home. David is happy for you to bring along any small sentimental objects you may wish to try to incorporate into your mosaic piece.

Full Day cost £79 - Create an abstract medium size indoor wall hanging. 9.30am - 4.30pm

Want to review this course?

Thoroughly enjoyed 1-2-1 mosaic making course with David!

I looked for help with making small mosaic sculptures. David took on the challenge and delivered a two-day workshop tailored to my needs. David was a very supportive tutor and the course was very well led with a good mix of theory and practice. He explained everything very clearly and made it very easy to remember.  He took me through each stage of the project with great patience and allowed lots of room for the experimentation which I valued most! 
The location is easy to find and the drive to Portland on sunny days was an extra bonus.
I cannot recommend this course highly enough. At White Stones Studio days just fly by!
