NEW for 2024! Learn the art of mosaic design and practice the skills needed to make a mosaic that can
live outdoors.

In this class you will learn the difference between an indoor and outdoor mosaic and will be introduced to the materials best suited for an outdoor piece.

This is the perfect class for beginners and for those wishing to expand their mosaic knowledge.

When we think of mosaic, we often associate them with being outdoors but if you don’t know what you are doing all your hard work can be undone when the frost and rain compromise the stability of your mosaic and loosen your tiles. This workshop will teach you everything you need to know to ensure that your mosaic can live a long and happy life outside!

We will be using the mosaic onto mesh method and there will be a variety of templates and ideas to choose from or you can bring along your own design. You will be taught how to cut and nibble glass and ceramic tiles and learn about the different adhesives for outdoor mosaics.

There will be an opportunity to work a small sample using cement adhesive onto a weatherproof backing board so that you can compare and contrast the different methods.

You will need to bring along a piece of stiff board that will be used as the base for your mosaic to rest on. It needs to be flat and sturdy – A tray or piece of wood / board/ stiff card. Your base needs to be roughly 40cm x 40cm.

Please note there is a £25 material cost on the day and all tools are provided. You will leave with a completed mosaic together with the additional materials needed to fix your piece in the outdoor location of your choosing.
