About the Course

Award winning artist Julie Vernon runs small mosaic workshops for 4 - 8 people at her Nottinghamshire studio. Informal and relaxed atmosphere, these courses are suitable for absolute beginners through to those wanting to improve and practice their skills. In this one day workshop (10 - 4) you will be introduced to a wide range of materials and cutting techniques to make your own individual wall plaque. Julie will guide you all the way with plenty of books on hand to help inspire you with your design. All materials provided although feel free to bring along some of your own special vintage finds such as buttons, china saucers and broken tiles which you may like to include to make personal to you.

As you need to allow your mosaic to dry overnight a grouting demonstration will be given in the afternoon along with a bag of grout for you to complete at home.

This is a lovely course. Location was easy to find, lovely little studio, nice light lunch. There were plenty of examples and books for us to reference and lots of lovely materials. Julie led us through the process and gave us help and hints as the day unfolded. Brilliant course. Thank you Julie for you patience.

Amazing day. I booked the day for myself and a friend for her birthday and we had a fab time. Julie is a great teacher, the workshop was planned to perfection and on top of that lunch was lovely. I’ve already had some lovely comments about my work and I only made it yesterday. We are going back in a couple of months to make more advanced projects!

Had a fantastic day with Julie making an outdoor mosaic plaque. Julie offered encouragement and helpful advice and had an amazing range of colours and materials to bring my idea to life. A very hands-on course where we were encouraged to follow our own ideas and try different techniques. Great venue in her light and airy studio. A relaxing lunch which was most welcome - especially the homemade cake 😊. Julie made this a really enjoyable and rewarding day that I'd recommend to anybody wanting to try mosaics or develop their skills.

I would like to say a massive thank you for the amazing mosaic workshop today and providing me with as much assistance as possible when I made my Union Jack. I felt like it was an amazing therapeutic experience which allowed me to express my true creativity and I am now feeling relaxed because of it. Have a lovely rest of the summer!

I attended a full day workshop with Julie where I was given a choice of making an inside or outside project. We were welcomed with refreshments into Julie’s lovely workshop and she talked us through the array of tiles, crockery, embellishments we could use for our chosen project. Julie provided us with a lovely lunch including home made cake. We ended the day being shown how to grout and given a bag to take home to finish our project when the mosaic had dried. I had a great day and would highly recommend this course.

This is the 2nd of Julie's workshops that I've attended. This time it was myself and my 13 year old daughter. We both had a wonderful time and are very pleased with what we managed to produce on the day. You do not have to be highly creative (I am not) as Julie provides helpful and much appreciated guidance just when it is needed. I would highly recommend this course, both whether you want to do something on your own or as a family / friends outing.

My mum booked this for us a a birthday treat, and it was a fantastic day.

Julie was brilliant, so helpful and knowledgeable. Her work was phenomenal and I was delighted with the piece I brought home with me. I would definitely recommend Julie.
