One to one mosaic experience workshop with award winning artist Julie Vernon Nottinghamshire



Mosaic workshops take place on weekdays in my Nottinghamshire studio and suitable for absolute beginners through to those wanting to improve and develop their skills. With Covid restrictions in place these are currently offered as either a one to one or workshop for two (see more courses below).

This gives friends and family an opportunity to meet up and spend a creative day together in the relaxed and informal setting of an artist studio. A mosaic experience with a lovely vintage style lunch!

Dates are flexible!

Choose one of these mosaic projects to complete in this one day workshop (10 - 4):
- Wall plaque/art
- Plant pot
- House number
- Christmas stars

You will be introduced to a wide range of materials and cutting techniques to make your own individual design. Please discuss at the time of booking what you would like to make so that I can tailor the workshop and prepare materials.

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.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials provided - a variety of bases, adhesive, mosaic tiles and cutting tools.

Please do bring along some extra materials of your own however such as tiles, buttons, vintage crockery to make this personal to you and to help minimise general materials handling.

In light of covid19 precautions please bring your own safety goggles for cutting glass (pick up from any DIY shop), apron and face mask.

Julie and Nicky - - #31261

As a 50th birthday treat for Nicky we attended what was Julie’s first ‘two to one’ socially distanced mosaic workshop since lockdown. Julie went to great lengths to ensure our safety without it impacting upon our enjoyment of the day, including a lovely lunch outside in the garden. Neither of us had tried mosaic before but with Julie’s excellent coaching style and wide range of beautiful materials, were able to harness our creativity and produce indoor plaques that we were delighted with. We were fully engrossed and the time flew by. A grouting demonstration and detailed take home support, including a YouTube video, extended our enjoyment beyond the workshop. We were thrilled with the finished product and have the day we spent making our first mosaic together etched in our minds as a lovely memory. We both plan to continue to explore this compelling craft and would highly recommend the course. Thank you Julie.

Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:

Thank you, it was a pleasure to spend time with you both. Enjoy your artwork! All the best Julie

My sister and I had a fantastic day creating our first mosaics with Julie. She gave lots of advice and support but also left us to explore our creative sides too. The lunch was delicious and seeing examples of her work in the beautiful workshop was wonderful. I would highly recommend this to anyone who fancies trying their hand and mosaic making with a great teacher!

Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:

Many thanks for the review - it was lovely to meet you both. Hope to see you again in the future for some more mosaic making!

My daughter and I worked collaboratively on a mosaic, Julie took this into account and gave us a larger base to work on to. The action of making the mosaic was totally absorbing and helped us to be relaxed and to clear our minds of day to day stress. The process of making something, with our hands was so satisfying, it was really the most enjoyable part of the day. We were very much in the moment and it was both creative and therapeutic.
Julie is an excellent teacher, we had never made a mosaic before but she gave us clear guidance and then encouraged and supported us in the right amounts. Her studio is bright, warm and full of the tiles and equipment needed to inspire. We met some lovely, like minded people and would really recommend this experience.

Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:

Thanks for the lovely review. I wonder who will get to keep the mosaic? Good luck with the grouting!

Gabriella - - #27614

Had a lovely very enjoyable day. Julie is excellent in explaining very clearly and helping learn all the steps of the process. We learnt how to do a mosaic picture from start to finish and took home our finished product. Excellent. Fully recommended.

Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:

Thanks for the lovely review. Good luck with the grouting!

Karen Hall - - #26195

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.

Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:

Many thanks for your review Karen. Hope to see you again in the future for some more mosaic making. All the best Julie

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!

Angela - - #23570

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.

Ardi Farman - - #23555

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!

Karen Beaumont - - #21983

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.

Danielle Simpson - - #21655

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.

Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:

Thanks for the lovely review … enjoy your mosaic makes!

Hilary Patterson - - #21742

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.
