What happens in this class?

Make a stunning mosaic out of a mosaic template, photograph or your original design. You will learn how to cut mosaic tile to precise shapes as well as how to design the mosaic with a consistent andamento. This is the flow of tiles and gaps in a mosaic which creates a distinct and systematic pattern.

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…

Alex a really good teacher I support the request to be prepared with designs for the class as even simple designs take all day. Materials were plenty and varied to use. Back to Alex as she set a welcoming tone for the whole day. I certainly recommend this course to others Meg

I had a horrible start to the full day Beginner's Course on Saturday 21st August because the instructions to the car park [I am a Blue Badge holder] were totally inadequate. I had been helped to reserve a place by Marvin in the office during the week but the instruction to collect the parking permit before class required me to find the address and a parking place to safely leave my car before doing so! The number of the School of Mosaic was very hard to see from the road and way beyond the entrance to the parking area. The office phone was not answered when I tried for help. Fortunately Alex my course tutor later picked up a call - she had supplied us with her number - and came out into the road to help me find the entrance car parking space and permit for display alongside my disabled badge. She was friendly, understanding and very generous considering she was also just beginning the course with the other participants [another of whom had also had similar problems]. The good news is that having got over my parking problems etc I had a very good day. The course was well organised and relaxed. Alex was very skilled at meeting the needs of a varied group and created a supportive atmosphere. Without seeming to pressure us she got us through the required stages providing help when required without fuss or patronising us. Her humour and chocolate digestive biscuit were great and we all left very satisfied and proud of our own and each other's achievements! Thankyou

We had a great time, learned a lot and individuality was able to flourish! Thank you Alex.
Alexander Jones - July 26th
Really enjoyed a busy but rewarding day. Guidance from the host was insightful and always seemed to be at just the right moment. Plenty of tools & tiles to choose from which made designing my first mosaic a joy.
Mona - July 24th
Amazing class, amazing instructor!
Nicky Gist - July 19th
Great teacher and airy space to work in which was cool on a boiling day. Alot to fit in the hours and a shame that the end was time tight but I really enjoyed it!

It was okay, I learned that I could draw the tile shape on the wood, but overall I had learned way more from online videos, and other online materials before. The atmosphere around the school was very nice. I feel the course was lacking instruction and technique teaching. I was hoping to get detailed explanation of use of tools, cutting or tiles laying technique, and comment or advice on the design choice (what's suitable, not suitable), but all of them were not really covered. We were only given a paper about ways to cut into different shapes, but I don't think the tutor actually covered the cutting technique other than just asking us to try it, I feel that we were effectively just given the space and materials to work on a piece that day with limited explanation and guidance. I thought it was a course, not an experience day. Perhaps if was intended that way, it should be advertised that way?
Wanda Wyporska - April 22nd
Great day course on which I learned such a lot about the techniques. Good teacher, great cafe and I've signed up for a two day course now!

A really good introduction to mosaics.

Excellent class, really enjoyed it. Very well set up for current circumstances and Paola was a superb teacher. Would highly recommend this class.
Sara - September 10th
Such a great day, the class was really well taught and paced for a group of newbies. Paula was a great tutor and helped us elevate our ideas to look as good in real life as they did in our minds! Highly recommended.
Julia - August 1st
Fantastic course, thank you very much
Sharon Clewes - September 10th
The course was excellent. I had never done any mosaic work before but after this course I love it and would like to do more. The teacher was superb - friendly, helpful and encouraging. I’d come again in a flash.
Tracie Woodman - September 10th
Tutor was passionate and enabled all students to complete their project. Plenty of equipment and choice of materials. My experience certainly made me want to go back for more! I had a really enjoyable day, a very socialable group with lots if giggles as well as the hard work concentrating! In n our break I chatted to students on another class and If I lived in London I would certainly have looked into doing a diploma. The school has a great ethos, very engaged with local community and happy that by attending a course with them it helps support this work.
