About the Course

On this day workshop you will learn how to design, cut and shape various tiles and recyclable tesserae and make upto 3 useful cup coasters. Taking grout with you to finish at home. These can also be used as wall tiles.

A fun enjoyable workshop at the historic Higherford Mill in Barrowford. An old water powered weaving mill, that is now full of creatives business units. Can be a bit chilly so no t,shirts although it is heated.

A wide range of materials and tesserae is provided to feed your creative juices, recycled materials are also available such as china, beads, shells, old jewellery as well as more conventional tessarae such as glass and ceramic.

Along the way we will discuss various mosaic techniques and possible future projects. Also covering the essential safety rules and best practice. Books will be on hand to help with the design process and a selection of completed mosaic pieces will be on show to see what further possibilities are available using this exciting medium.

This workshop is completely suitable for beginners as you will be offered as much support as is needed, whilst also being encouraged to explore your own creative process.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials are provided, all you need to bring are your lunch, an apron and a box to carry them home in.

We will have a short break so I ask you to bring a packed lunch, but teas and coffee will be provided throughout the day.

Want to review this course?

I attended the Mosaics course in Higherford Mill yesterday. Catherine was a very good tutor and even though I struggled at the start (don’t let that put you off!), Catherine was very helpful & I managed to produce a lovely heart. I haven’t had time yet to grout my heart, but am looking forward to seeing the finished article very soon. I was a total beginner and would recommend this course to everyone. Thoroughly enjoyable day.
