About the Course
One day mosaic course with experienced artist tutor Joy Sturgess, for adults of all levels of experience including beginners. Max number of students: 6
Come and learn the direct method of making a mosaic suitable for indoors or outdoors by laying tiles directly onto a durable surface. This can be a mixed media mosaic if you wish- and you can bring your own material to include in your work. Joy has a good range of unglazed ceramic and glass tesserae.
On one of Joy's courses you will learn:
•How to transform a design idea into a mosaic
•How to use mosaic making tools
•How to cut and lay mosaic tiles
•How to apply basic techniques of andamento (movement) to your work.
•How to grout and clean your mosaic.
This course is suitable for mosaic novices or those wishing to extend their practice. You will complete a small mosaic (20cm x 20cm maximum) to take home.
It does not matter if you do not consider yourself 'arty', Joy can help you with any design and drawing required.
