Immerse yourself in a day of festive fun and creativity, by producing your very own stunning version of the mosaic Christmas wreath that I created on Kirstie Allsop’s Handmade Christmas television programme in December 2018! The everlasting and eye-catching design is suitable for outdoors, so can be hung on your front door and can be used year after year, but it also makes a stunning centrepiece for your Christmas dinner table.
You will have access to the same gorgeous vitreous glass tiles, ceramic beads, broken vintage plates 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.
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 30cm in diameter) ready to grout
Learn about the correct adhesives and grouts to use
Never tried mosaic before? Then don’t worry! This workshop is suitable for beginners and I help and support you through every step.
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.
