About the Course
Design and make your own mosaic with Peter Massey of Zantium Studios.
Explore traditional or contemporary approaches using beautiful glass and ceramic tiles. Potential projects include a decorative panel, mirror frame, trivet or house number/name.
An inspirational slide show is followed by instruction on materials and shaping techniques. A design session will help you develop your own creative project in the style and material of your choice. You are welcome to work from your own design or one provided by Zantium. Grouting and finishing demonstrations conclude the workshop.
Open to both beginners and those with experience.
