One Day Mosaic Course (Saturday)

One Day Course in Mosaic for Adults: Direct Method

Saturday 16th February from 10am-5pm

For beginners and improvers. Work with ceramics and vitreous glass, using nippers.

Make a stunning mosaic out of a mosaic template, photograph or your original design whilst learning a variety of techniques, from classic to modern to create your own unique mosaic!
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.

Our short courses take place in a large creative studio and each class has capacity to maximum 8 students so everyone can have individual attention and help from the artist tutor. 

One day courses are suitable for people who are complete beginners wanting try a taster session to learn the basics of mosaic making and have a fun day. You will create a small piece of 14cm square mosaic using the direct method. In order to be able to complete the mosaic within the given time the design must be simple such as a star, or a flower, or a heart or an object silhouette. After completing your booking you must submit your design ideas for approval before the start day of the course.
