One day Mosaic Workshop



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 in the morning by choosing a design to mosaic. The base will be a large piece of rustic slate. 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. I have also recently completed and installed a floor for a bar in Mayfair, London. So I look forward to meeting you for a creative day filled with inspiration and cake !! I am more than happy to run workshops on dates to suit if there are 2-4 people, just let me know .

What's included in the price?

Included in the day will be all your materials and tuition, homemade cake and biscuits and plenty of hot and cold drinks. The studio is a 5 min walk from the centre of Pateley Bridge for plenty of lunch options or bring your own.

I have been immersed in the world of mosaics for over 15 yrs and have been involved in some fantastic commissions both public and private. It's an extremely versatile medium to work with that lends itself to functional and decorative at the same time. Once you have a go I suspect you'll be hooked like me ! Hopefully see you soon.
