Garden Mosaics £95 per person
Duration: 6 hours
Location: Claire's Home Studio, Hertford, Herts.
Make something colourful for the garden in this full day mosaic workshop. Come and relax and enjoy creating a fabulous mosaic with Claire Costello. You will be using glass and ceramic tiles to create your design and decorate your panel with materials specifically for outdoor use. This means you will be safe in the knowledge that your work can be left outside to brighten up your garden all year round. Your day includes refreshments, sandwiches and snacks.
Size options for backings:
30cm x 20cm or a square 25cm x 25cm.
Your garden mosaic can be purely for decoration or you can also create a door number. All workshops are for adults with all levels of ability. You will leave with a finished piece and a good understanding of how to create mosaics at home. No previous experience is necessary and a wonderful array of coloured tiles, gems and glass are available for you to create.
You will be advised on layout and design, but ultimately you decide how you want your mosaic to look. Some students find looking on ‘google images’ or ‘pinterest’ a good way to start before the workshop day. Examples and designs are available if you would prefer a more structured layout to copy.
In all of the workshops you will grout your work in your own time at home. This is because the mosaic adhesive needs 24 hours to dry. On the day a demonstration on how to grout your mosaic is given with tips and notes to take away with you, along with your grout pack and everything you need. It is honestly easy and a very useful skill to have :0).
Health and Safety:
We all work from one large table, there is hand sanitiser and I keep windows open but there is no social distancing, although we are nicely spaced out and not on top of each other. You don't have to wear a mask, but can if you want and you can ask me to wear one too. I do offer sandwiches, snacks, tea and coffee, but if you would prefer to bring your own refreshments please feel free. We will need to wear safety glasses in the workshop, which I supply. If you have your own please bring them and also spectacles for close up work. Please wear closed toe footwear.
