Discover Mosaics: An Introductory Workshop Duration: 3 hours Cost: £55 per person Location: Lower Studio, Southern Maltings, Kibes Lane, Ware, Herts, SG12 7BS Embark on a captivating introduction to the world of mosaics with our three-hour workshop! The Discover Mosaics workshop is designed with beginners in mind, focusing on fundamental skills. Nevertheless, if you've dabbled in mosaics before and simply seek a refresher, you are more than welcome to join us. During this hands-on experience, you'll have the chance to create your own mosaic masterpiece on a base of your choosing – whether it's a square, circle, or heart shape, all designed for interior use. Delve into the direct method, design principles, mastering mosaic tools, and learn the art of cutting and laying ceramic and glass vitreous tiles using tile nippers. The class covers everything from recommended suppliers and materials to the essential process of grouting your mosaic. Just like with any mosaic, it's crucial to wait for the adhesive to dry (a 24-hour process) before grouting. Therefore, your grouting will be done at home at your own pace, but worry not – during the workshop, Claire will lead you through the steps and supply you with a grout kit along with instructions to bring home. Unleash your creativity and join us for an enriching mosaic experience! Mosaic shape options on the day: Heart, Square or Circle – size range: 15cm to 20cm Design: On your workshop day you will be guided through layout and design, but ultimately you decide how you want your mosaic to look. But here's the secret – you don't have to be Picasso to create something amazing. Feel free to explore 'Google images' or 'Pinterest' before the workshop for inspiration. If you prefer a bit more structure, we've got examples and designs at your disposal on the day. Worried about your artistic block? Relax! Claire's here to help, and you'll be surprised at the fantastic mosaic you'll craft, regardless of your artistic background. It's a creative journey for everyone, and we're here to make sure it's a breeze! Refreshments: We will supply tea, coffee (instant version) and cake for the workshop. If you are on a full day workshop, we will have a lunch break so please bring a packed lunch or there are plenty of shops and cafes to buy lunch on the day. Good to Know: All workshops are for adults (16 +) with all levels of ability. You will leave with a finished piece and the knowledge of how to create mosaics at home.
