Online 'Magic of Mosaic' course with Anne Cardwell



The Magic of Mosaic. This course comes with a very inexpensive price tag - but it is no reflection on it's content, which is thorough, broad ranging, stylish and is a thoroughly good introduction to the art of mosaic making, or for those who are wanting to broaden their skills.

Mosaic is absorbing, mindful and peaceful, you can be creative and focus your thoughts on building something really positive - and colourful! Many mosaic artists are self taught - you can start with found objects, shells, stones - but if you want to move on and find out more about this ancient and fascinating craft, then this course is for you.

It includes everything you need to know 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.)

The course is presented in easy digestible and downloadable sections, it is based on what I would normally impart on a one day course. It is not essential to watch it all in one sitting - the first lesson will get you started quite easily and later, as you are more ambitious, will look at more projects and techniques. It is designed to inspire and encourage so that you can delight yourself, and perhaps your friends! If you are daunted about starting a mosaic you might consider purchasing one of my 'Anne Cardwell' starter ceramic pieces.

Small price, big content!
If you think this is incredibly inexpensive for a course - you are right! I have offered this special price throughout the months of Covid19 and, as the pandemic has gone on, so the offer continues.

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 for 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.
