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 you started into mosaics and to help you 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 glass, stone, smalti and marble with all the tools involved in producing a fantastic piece of work to suit your style and interest. You will have a lot of individual tuition on this friendly course and you will be guided based on your individual needs. Each theme is prepared in advance but you are encouraged to develop your own design if you have the confidence.
Through these classes you should 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 your own work.
Additional Info: Drinks and refresements will be available during the session. We take pride in offering you four choices of Italian coffee and a Lavazza coffee machine to make your day even better. 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.
Come and meet like-minded people, all levels of experience welcome!
