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 paced 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 mosaic-specialist 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.

What is covered in the course:

  • The direct method of mosaic
  • How to transform a design idea into a mosaic
  • How to use mosaic making tools
  • How to cut and lay ceramic and glass vitreous tiles using tile nippers
  • How to grout and complete your mosaic.
