Workshop Dates 2018
Saturday, 11 August 2018 (10am – 4pm)
Venue: The Higgins, Bedford
Come and create something of your choice – suitable for beginners and more experienced where I teach you how to design your piece, how to cut vitreous and ceramic tiles using wheeled nippers and how to grout and clean your mosaic. The workshop will cover various mosaic terminology which I will also throw in every now and again but nothing to worry about.
If you have ever wanted to learn how to mosaic or have been before and want to try something a little different then this workshop is for you!
FAMILY WORKSHOP FUN!
Wednesday, 8, 15 & 22 August 2018 (10am – 12.30pm)
Venue: Luton Irish Forum, Kathleen Connolly House, Hitchin Rd, Luton
This workshop is great for that family time together especially during the Summer Holidays.
Each participant will have templates to work from, a range of lovely materials and guidance to help them along the way.
All materials will be provided and you will leave with some insight into mosaic art and a great sense of accomplishment.
AUTUMN ADVENTURES WITH MOSAIC
Saturday, 22 September 2018 (10am – 4pm)
In this workshop we will take our inspiration from nature and create scenes with Autumn in mind. Don’t worry – you do not have to be an artist or an expert at mosaic. This is a great class to get introduced to mosaic and also a fantastic class to boost your mosaic skills.
A HOME TO REMEMBER
Saturday, 20 October 2018 (10am – 4pm)
This workshop was inspired by another mosaic artist who did a lovely interpretation of their home so I thought I would introduce this to my participants. Perfect for beginners or those wanting to push their mosaic boundaries out a little. We will look at direction and flow to make your home interpretation something to be proud of.
Saturday, 24 November 2018 (10am – 4pm)
To end the year let’s create some festive pieces to adorn your home. From table centre pieces to Xmas tree decorations you will be spoilt for choice. No experience required but must be willing to indulge in a mince pie or three!
By the end of each workshop, you will have learnt:
1. How to design your artwork and apply to the base
2. How to use wheeled nippers (adults and children over 12 years only)
3. How to use andamento and flow
4. How to grout your piece
All materials will be provided.
*You will get to go home with an ungrouted mosaic piece as the tiles will need to be completely dry before grouting can be done.
