Suitable for ages 13+ you will create your first internal mosaic artwork working on a square, circular or rectangular wooden base approx 20x20cm or 15x25cm.

This workshop is ideal for beginners who are interested in learning the basics of mosaic. You will be taught how to design your piece, how to cut vitreous and stained glass using wheeled nippers. You will learn how to grout and clean your mosaic once your design is complete*. It will cover various mosaic terminology which I will teach you so you can really impress your friends! You will be encouraged to experiment with a range of colourful tiles to create your own artpiece. Students are encouraged to bring their own designs but do keep it SIMPLE (think clipart drawings).

By the end of the workshop, you will have learnt:

1. How to design your artwork
2. How to use wheeled nippers
2. How to use andamento and flow
3. How to grout your piece

A small range of tiles and grout will be available to buy your own future use but all other materials will be provided.

*You will get to go home with an ungrouted mosaic piece as the tiles will need to be completed dry before grouting can be done.
