FAQs
Can I take my work home at the last class?
It is advisable to leave the mosaic here to dry (as we lay it into cement) on the last class, and pick it up at a later time.
What if I have to miss a class?
If you have to miss a session on a multi-week course you should speak to the tutor first to arrange for you to make up the time missed. Depending on availability of spaces/tutors we try to accommodate you.
What if I haven't finished my mosaic at the end of the class?
If you do not manage to complete your mosaic during the duration of the class or course, there are options for you to book/pay for extra studio or tutor time. Please discuss this directly with your tutor.

The friendly, informal atmosphere makes it easy to progress your mosaic-making, ceramic or other artistic project under the watchful eye of a tutor who offers brilliant advice on achieving striking and subtle effects. It’s good to chat to the other like-minded people alongside and pick up their tricks and tips, too.

So enjoyable an activity everything else disappears. Just as feeding for the soul is getting to chat to all the interesting people who chose to do it too. The instruction is relaxed and happens when you need it, making the class suitable for any level. It’s a forgiving medium but also one with lots of opportunity for creativity. 👍
