'Pick & Stick' China Mosaic Workshop



Blue Jelly Moon hosts this 2 hour workshop where you will create your own mosaic (and possibly more than one!) from a selection of pre-cut shapes using broken china, mosaic tiles and other reclaimed materials.

Included in the course is a free drink or arrival and a warm welcome plus everything you need for the project, including a template base of varying shapes and sizes, pre-cut china, glue and other reclaimed materials.

This is ideal for beginners and those who want to have a bit of relaxation and fun no matter how creative you are (or not! ). An excellent introduction to mosaicing.

You are welcome to bring along your own china that may have been passed down to you and possibly not being used but carries many wonderful memories from years past. Give 'Grandma's' china a new twist and bring it back into modern day use!

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?

Free drink on arrival.
Pre-cut china pieces and other recycled items, a choice of templates, tools, glue and powdered grout with written instructions to finish your creation at home as the glue requires at least 24 hours to dry.

Well organised course and Pat was an excellent teacher. All equipment was provided and I ended up with my first handcrafted mosaic coaster! Thanks for a lovely morning.

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

It was lovely to meet you this morning and thank you for your review! So glad you liked your mosaiced coaster and hopefully will be proudly displayed and used on a regular basis x

Ann Spencer - - #29336

We enjoy being creative and Mosaicing was new for us. Had a great time and we love our coasters. Pat is very encouraging and a great teacher. Using old pottery also makes this craft very cost effective. Thanks so much for a wonderful 2 hours.

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

So glad you enjoyed the workshop. There is something very satisfying remodelling something old into something new and giving it a second life. Hope to see you and Jacky again in the future x

I had a great time learning to Mosaic, great for beginners like myself, I was made to feel really welcome and came away with a lovely Mosaic heart (if you are quick you can do two). Added bonus
Swarkstone nursery is good to look round and a nice cafe.

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

Thank you Rosie. Glad you made it in the end!
Hopefully see you again soon so you can add to collection :-)

Had a super morning learning mosaic art with Pat. Now I’m equipped to bring a broken sentimental plate back to life for a special anniversary!! Lovely group of people too, in a light and relaxing setting. Very therapeutic.

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

So pleased you enjoyed the session, it was a full group, lively and sociable. Have fun recreating your broken plate and let me know if you need help. Hope to see you (& the ‘little one’) again soon!

What a great morning. I have been on two of these workshops and really enjoyed both, I have found a new hobby! I met some lovely people and will be back for more soon. Thank you Pat for making me feel welcome.

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

Thank you Sylvia, so glad you enjoyed the morning. I hope to see you again soon

Sophie - - #19745

I have done 4 workshops now and enjoyed every single one of them, I have lots of lovely handmade mosaic decorations that I display at home. Pat is a great teacher very friendly and helpful and made me feel very welcome to the class. Highly Recommend to anyone who likes creating handmade beautiful items.

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

Ah thank you Sophie! You have mosaiced some amazing pieces, so glad you have found another hobby! Hope to see you again soon x

Debra - - #19714

I have attended a few of Pats workshops now. All have been friendly and welcoming. Pat gives lots if support and advice and you go home with a lovely hand made unique piece to treasure.
Would recommend the sessions to anyone whether your going with friends or on your own.

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

Thanks Deb! Will see you again soon x

Abi Aime - - #19681

What a great course and great value for money. I was nervous about going to a course where I knew no-one, but I needn't have been, Pat was so welcoming and friendly and I was soon absorbed picking and sticking and found the time just flew by! I will definitely book on again.

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

Thank you Abi and I am so pleased you felt welcomed and comfortable at the workshop. Your creation was just lovely and hope you will come along to another workshop.

Di Brandrick-Hoult - - #19658

Had a fabulous time. Pat is an excellent teacher and she offers lots of new skills and ideas for creative works. It is a perfect opportunity to meet new people and develop new friendships.
I have since created and added mosaic crafting to objects at home (coffee table/lazy Susan and table mats). I must send you some photos Pat. Well worthwhile and enjoyable workshop.

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

Thank you Di I am so glad you have carried on with other projects at home. I did warn you it was addictive!!

Jayne Thornton - - #19657

I enjoy trying different crafts and hadn’t tried mosaic before. I have now been to four workshops and made a variety of decorative items. Everything is provided and help is available. The workshops are informal and friendly and it is a very relaxing activity.

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

Thank you Jayne. I'm glad you took advantage of the 4 for 3 offer and have produced some amazing pieces. Looking forward to seeing what you will mosaic next time!

Helen - - #19652

I have been to 4 workshops so far and really enjoy them. Everything is provided that you need to start your mosaic design. It's fairly sociable, creative and relaxing and you come away with some nice mosaic pieces. Pat is on hand to help with anything. Look forward to the next one!

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

Thank you Helen for taking advantage of our 4 for 3 offer and glad you have enjoyed each session. Looking forward to seeing you again and wonder what you might be mosaicing next time?? Love the plant pot you did last week!

Stacey G - - #19641

I went to a workshop just before Christmas and made a lovely Ornament for our Christmas tree. Workshop was organized and friendly and all of us had a great time. I will be booking another workshop very soon!

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

Thank you Stacey, you now have a lovely ornament made by you that will hang on your tree year after year! Glad you enjoyed the workshop and look forward to see you again soon!

Lynne - - #19632

I have now been to 2 of Pat's workshops and have discovered some craft abilities that I didn't know I had!
It is a very sociable couple of hours and I would recommend giving it a try!

Response from Blue Jelly Moon:

Thank you Lynne. I am so pleased you have enjoyed the workshops and discovered something new! Hope to see you again soon
