About the Course
Friday afternoon mosaic workshops in Essex.
Make something fantastic for your house and garden, indulge yourself in a world of fabulous world of colour and iridescent shine. I am an established artist and designer and have been teaching mosaic since 2005.
Every Friday from 1.15 - 4.15pm
£25 per session.
£10 deposit, non returnable one week before the class. Balance of £15 payable on the day. Materials are extra - see below.
A minimum of 4 people is required.
Everyone works at their own pace on their own projects. The classes are relaxed, creative and friendly, open to any ability.
The studio accommodates 8 people, entry via a few steps. There is plenty of parking right outside.
For beginners it is best to book at least three classes to have a good chance of completing a project. Have an open mind about finishing off your work at home, as it is not always practical to time projects to the exact hours you might attend.
The tiles needed to complete your work will be provided and are charged as below. If you continue to work at home the suppliers you need will be provided. I will teach you cutting and laying your tiles, what to stick them onto and what to stick with. Some dexterity is required, cutting with nippers needs reasonable strength, but easily achievable by most people.
BASES. What to stick your work to: MDF is suitable for working indoors and I supply this at 12mm thick in a limited range of sizes, A4 and A3, and some square bases in similar sizes. To work outdoors you need something waterproof, like metal, frost proof tiles, a pot (sealed or frostproof), a small paving slab, glass, perspex.... please provide, if you are unsure please contact me.
I hope you will join our classes, come along and find your creative soul!
Courses will be run when viable numbers are reached.
