Description

Here comes summer! And to get into the summery spirit, why not join me in my well-equipped studio for a fun, relaxing and inspiring day, creating a beautiful beach-themed mosaic, that will look stunning on display in your home.

You will have access to my wide collection of gorgeous vitreous glass tiles, ceramic beads, broken vintage plates and shells 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 30cm x 30cm) 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.
