Course details

Brief Description

 During this workshop you will create a unique mosaic. Experiment using small fragments of glass, shaping them using a grinding machine, and finally gluing and grouting the fragments together to create a beautiful mosaic panel based on your design.

Learning outcome:

You will learn through demonstrations and discussion. I will help you to create your own design so that you will understand how to design your own in the future. By the end of the day, you will have made a fun decorative piece using just glass fragments!

Extra costs on the course:

Specific mosaic materials for the day will cost £7 which will be paid to the tutor in CASH at the beginning of the workshop.   All equipment will be provided except the ones listed below which you will need to bring with you on the day.

What you need to bring for the day:

  • A permanent pen,
  • Images for inspiration
  • An apron (fabric or plastic coated)
  • A piece of glass, mdf or a smooth tile – up to A5 size (the school can provide a board if you do not have one available)
  • A jam jar for extra grout if needed.

Optional: sequins, beads, buttons.
