Explore the ancient world of mosaic and make your own beautiful mosaic panel to treasure for years to come.
Mosaic is the wonderful art of creating an image or pattern using small pieces of coloured glass, stone or other materials – usually flat and square in shape. Mosaics have a very long history, starting as long ago as the 3rd millennium BC.
This workshop is the perfect introduction to mosaic. No drawing or artistic skills required, just the keenness to enjoy a fascinating day learning a new skill.
Your experience and highly talented tutor will guide you through the processes. You will be shown the various methods of making mosaics and will learn the techniques of cutting and shaping viterous glass and ceramic tesserae, applying them to an A4 sized panel and learning the skill of grouting and cleaning the finished mosaic.
Your day will run from 10.00am until 4.00pm. All the materials and equipment required to make your panel will be provided, including a workshop apron for you to wear during the day. As with all our workshops, there will be a pause for lunch, which is also provided.
Join us for this creative day and head home with a work of art – you will be delighted with the results!
