Immerse yourself in a day of festive fun and creativity, by producing your very own stunning interpretation of the mosaic Christmas wreath that I created on Kirstie Allsop’s Handmade Christmas television programme in December 2018!
You will have access to the same gorgeous vitreous glass tiles, ceramic beads and glass pebbles that I used to create my competition entry and I will guide you through the tips and techniques to create a beautiful Christmas mosaic that you can be proud of. Or, if you prefer, create your own design in your favourite Christmas colours.
Within a friendly, supportive and fun environment, you will:
Use a template to create the design
Cut and shape your tesserae (tiles)
Produce a mosaic (approximately 38cm in diameter) ready to grout
Learn about the correct adhesives and grouts to use
Help and support will be given through each step but if you have never made a mosaic before, you may like to complete one of my short workshops aimed at beginners before attending this.
We won’t have time to grout during the workshop, but a full demonstration will be given, and you will have enough grout to finish off your mosaic at home.
