About the Event
If you want to learn about mosaics and experience the joy of making one, we run monthly workshops, like this one to get your children started with mosaics and to help them practice more.
We will teach you different mosaic techniques, with both direct and indirect mosaic options being included throughout the year. Sessions are designed to be standalone or as a block of sessions for projects that require more time with discounts on multiple bookings.
We will be learning about different tiles and cutting techniques, we will explore various mosaic materials such as, stone, smalti and marble with all the tools involved in producing a fantastic piece of work to suit each child and their interests. They will have a lot of individual tuition on this friendly course and they will be guided based on individual needs. Each theme is prepared in advance but children are encouraged to develop their own design if they have the confidence.
Through these classes chidren will be able to understand color and shapes for mosaic making, understand the difference between direct, indirect, double-reberse, Ravenna mosaic techniques and be able to color and grout thier own work.
Additional Info: Drinks and snackswill be available during the session. Our building is not fitted with a lift but luckily we are only located on the 1st floor to make it easyer for you. Toilets are located on the same floor so no more stairs for you! Free on-street parking available on Sundays.
