Course Outline

Create extraordinary mosaics to decorate your home and garden with colourful mosaic artworks. The ease and speed of execution, and beauty of the results, makes mosaicking one of the most enjoyable of the decorative arts. Learn the basics on a rectangular terracotta planter using various materials such as tiles, mirror and ceramics, known as tesserae. Another workshop idea is to create a still life mosaic on a 30cm square tile, using coloured glass, mirror and vintage ceramics

The day will start with a brief introduction, then hands on, sealing the planter, or preparing the tile surface, choosing colours and materials and design, learning cutting techniques with tools provided, adhering tesserae in the correct manner, so you are ready to complete the project the following week, when grout will be applied.
