Description

Treat yourself and join me in my well-equipped studio for a fun, relaxing and inspiring evening, creating a beautiful quirky bird mosaic, that will be unique to you and will look stunning hanging in your home.

You will have access to my wide collection of gorgeous vitreous glass tiles, ceramic beads, broken vintage plates and buttons and I will guide you through the tips and techniques to create a beautiful mosaic that you can be proud of.

Within a friendly, supportive and fun environment, you will:

  • Plan a design
  • Cut and shape your tesserae (tiles)
  • Produce a mosaic using the ‘direct method’ (approximately 25 x 12cm) 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 have plenty of tried and tested examples to help inspire you.

We won’t have time to grout during the workshop, but a full demonstration will be given and you can choose from a selection of different coloured grouts to finish off your mosaic at home. Alternatively, if you’d like me to grout your piece for you, then I’m more than happy to do so, for a cost of £15 to cover time, plus P&P.
