Mosaic, the Art of

 

Mosaic is a wonderfully versatile medium.  Using a range of colours and materials, you can transform simple designs in to beautiful mosaics which will last forever!

Over the two days you will be introduced to the varied artof mosaic.  a little of the history and a lot about the material

The course enables you to explore techniques and materials whilst making an individual piece of work.  We will be working mainly with the direct method which is sticking tiles directly to the surface.  The materials available are glass and ceramic tesserae, bathroom tiles, old china, buttons, mirror and other recycled materials, all in a range of colours from subtle to vibrant.

The weekend will provide all the basic techniques of cutting, laying and grouting.  This will give you the skills needed to complete further and more ambitious projects at home!

Personalise your work with any old bits of broken crockery or jewellery you can't bear to throw away.  Embed them into the mosaic and keep them forever.

By the end of the weekend you will have completed a panel of between A4-A3 in size.

The course is suitable for beginners or those with some experience of mosaic who want to experiment further r try something a bit more ambitious.

There will be pleny of books to hand for design ideas, should you nee them.
