Two session course
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.
On this course you will complete a mosaic of size 20cm x 20cm which is a good size to learn all skills involved in the direct method and complete your piece on time. The direct method allows you to make mosaics at all sizes for interiors.
We have a large range of tiles in many colours, including 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 all levels of skill are also welcome to join this course and practice their mosaic making skills at our well equipped studio, and receive technical advice from our mosaicist tutors.
This course covers:
- The direct method of mosaic making directly onto wood
- How to interpret and transform a photograph or drawing into a mosaic
- How to work with nippers to cut mosaic tiles
- Work with ceramic and vitreous glass tiles
- How to apply basic techniques of andamento (mosaic flow) into your work.
- How to grout and clean your mosaic.
