NB During covid this is priced at 25% of the original cost - just to help folk get on with something creative and to cover my costs for hosting it.
Mosaic is so absorbing, being creative can push all your troubles to one side for a time. There is a lot of advice out there, but it's helpful, I find, to have it all in one place.
This course is a fully comprehensive overview of everything you need to know about the ancient and addictive art of making mosaics and there are specific projects to follow as well. At first just watch, if you would like to have a go, order materials later. (There are notes about this within the courses.)
Learn the techniques in easy steps and work at your own pace in your own space.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
There are 20 lessons and 14 timelapse videos, notes to download at every stage and templates for you to use.
You'll learn about materials, what is suitable,
how to break tiles with nippers and how to create style and flow, so your mosaics are lively and readable.
Practical information, like bases, glues etc (important stuff!),
how to grout work, so it is waterproof and secure and
ideas for even more projects - things you can make your house, garden or for gifts.
There are supportive comments boxes, email and facebook contact throughout the course. No time frame, just your own pace.
Just watch the videos. Order materials after you have become engaged with the process. Setting up costs approx £50 for a mix of tiles, a base, glue, grout and nippers. Shopping advice supplied.
