Introduction to Mosaics: Direct Method

Date:  Sat 21st and Sun 22nd April

Time:  from 10am to 4pm

For all levels. Beginners and improvers are welcome!

Make a stunning mosaic out of a mosaic template, your original design or photograph whilst learning a variety of styles and techniques! You will learn the basics of mosaic making using the direct method (directly onto a surface), and exploring the rules of mosaic.

In this course you will complete a 20cm square mosaic, so that we ensure that you are able to learn all the necessary skills of mosaic and complete your piece. We have a large range of tiles in many colours, including ceramic, vitreous glass, crockery and recycled materials. You are also welcome to bring in your own found objects or tiles to use. You do not need to be especially good at drawing for this course as full tuition and help is available.
Participants from other levels of skill are also welcome to join this course and practice their mosaic making skills at our studio which is well equipped with a range of mosaic tiles in ceramic and glass and you will have support from a mosaic tutor.
