Day Courses in Mosaic for Adults (Wednesdays)


1 and 2 Day Courses in Mosaic for Adults (Wednesdays)

 

London School of Mosaic launches in September with 1 and 2 day mosaic courses for adults on some Wednesdays from 10am-4pm. 

Make a stunning mosaic out of a mosaic template, your original design whilst learning a variety of techniques, from classic to modern to create your own unique mosaic! Our mosaic courses are tailored to each individual needs. Mosaic is a slow pace art form and you don't need to be good at drawing as we teach different techniques to copy and transfer a design onto paper or wood base.

The size of your mosaic will depend of the number of days/hours you choose:
