What you will do

Ten session course

Daytime

A mosaic course for beginners and students with some experience of mosaic making who would like to expand their practice and learn a different technique. Students will work on their own individual project, emphasis will be placed on a personal approach to your design.

You will be able to make a mosaic choosing from one of the following techniques: direct, indirect, double indirect (into plastercine) or direct into tile adhesive. Cutting and shaping material with tile nippers will be taught, including how to form a curve. Use of the mosaic hammer and hardie to cut down stone and marble will also be covered. You will be able to explore the expressive possibilities of mosaic in your use of ‘andamento’ (different ways of laying down your mosaic tesserae to create different effects).

Week by week

  • Weeks 1 and 2: Designing your mosaic and developing a colour and material cartoon
  • Weeks 3 to 9: Making the mosaic in the group assisted by your tutor
  • After week 5 there is a half term break (coinciding with the school term)
  • Week 10: Grouting, and/or turning the mosaic depending whether you used the direct or indirect method

Your tutor: Catherine Parkinson

Catherine Parkinson is a freelance mosaic artist and teacher, specialising in decorative patterns and the innovative use of mosaic materials and techniques. She has been working with mosaic for 22 years, coming from a textiles background having studied a degree in hand embroidery at Manchester Metropolitan University.
