My one day mosaic course is held at my studio in Pateley Bridge in the heart of Nidderdale. Surrounded by nature, you can relax, feel inspired and create a variety of mosaic ideas that will be available.
We will start the morning by choosing one of several bases on which to mosaic. The bases will either be a large stone for the garden or hearth, a piece of grey, rustic slate, a mirror frame or a piece of ply wood. Once the base has been decided you will then design your mosaic, I have lots of reference books in the studio or feel free to bring your own ideas.
We will then transfer your chosen design onto the base and mosaic using the direct method. The materials used will be suitable for interior or exterior placing.
The course will be run by myself, Ruth Wilkinson. I have been a professional mosaic artist for over 15 years creating mosaics for both public commissions and private. My largest creation is situated at Robin Hood's Bay on the East coast of Yorkshire. The mosaic is 50 metres in length running along the sea wall. A short film about it is available on Youtube - search Robin Hood's Bay sea wall mosaic
So I look forward to meeting you for a creative day filled with inspiration and cake !!

I have been on Ruth's course twice now, with friends & family's. Ruth is very welcoming and provides lots of options for your project. She is very patient and supportive and the whole atmosphere is very relaxed and creative. Her lunches are delicious and the whole day is a fantastic experience.
Response from Ruth Wilkinson Mosaics:Ah thank you Georgina............ really pleased you enjoyed them :-)
This course was fantastic, lots of bases to choose from and great guidance and advice from Ruth when creating the design. Not to mention, the lovely lunch and refreshments provided... altogether a great day!
