Duration:     3 hours

Location:      Claire's Home Studio, Hertford, Herts.

New for 2022 - make some cute garden birds to hang outside in the garden. You will make two birds in this mosaic workshop. What type of bird is entirely up to you. Bluebird, blackbird, blue tit or robin. The birds are created onto a perspex backing and all exterior materials so they can brighten up the garden for years to come what ever the weather.

The workshop runs for approximately three hours.  

 

Exterior Birds x 2:            16cm wide

 

All mosaic 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.

 

Design:

Ultimately you decide how you want your bird to look. It doesn't even have to be a particular type of bird you can just create a crazy one. 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.

Grouting:

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).

 

On the Day:

All materials and tools are supplied so no need to bring anything. I do offer snacks, tea and coffee, but if you would prefer to bring your own refreshments/food 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. We all work from one large table in my kitchen/diner, there is hand sanitiser and I keep the area well ventilated. Please be assured that I will be keeping in line with any covid restrictions that may be in place at the time of your workshop. Thank you.
