Perfect for beginners to really get your teeth into learning the basic skills of mosaic making, using the tools, cutting glass and ceramic, making a design, laying the pieces, sticking and grouting.
You will start off with a small basic project like a small wall panel, a tile or a useful trivet, a little mirror, some coasters for example which you would expect to complete and then possibly move on to another piece which you may well complete - but if not you will have the skills and know-how to be able to finish at home.
There will be lot of materials to play with and lots of books and ideas to give you inspiration, pens, tracing paper, carbon paper etc. - but if you have some ideas do bring them along too - and a wide variety of bases too.
Students with previous experience are also very welcome to work on more advanced projects with guidance and supervision.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All tools and materials are included - a huge selection of glass, porcelain, ceramic and bases to work on - and all safety equipment is provided.
Tea and coffee are available throughout the day - and there are a couple of cafes close by for lunch / take-away sandwiches etc. but there is a seating area at the centre if you wish to bring your own packed lunch.
Free parking at the centre.

I attended Sarah's course in October 2019 and loved every minute of it.
There were a huge choice of materials to choose from and Sarah's expert guidance was great. Within no time at all I was cutting my own tiles and with Sarah's help assembling them.
I chose to make a kitchen trivet which only took 1 day. Other people were attempting more ambitious projects but I liked the fact that I had something ready to take home. The next day I started to make a house number plate and we were allowed to take home enough materials to finish projects at home including the grout.
It was also great meeting other people - everyone was very friendly and chatty and it was a really relaxing experience. Sarah is a great teacher and went to great lengths to make sure everyone was happy with their projects. Would recommend.
Response from Sarah Stanley Mosaics:Thank you so much for such lovely comments Suzanne - I really appreciate them. I am thrilled you enjoyed the course so much - I loved the colours of your trivet and you took such care with the colour selection to match your kitchen I am sure it looks great. Good luck finishing the house number - do send a picture! Thanks again, Sarah.
