Join mosaicist Aleta Doran in her latest workshop to create your own unique work of art.
In this workshop you will make a pictorial mosaic inspired by a subject of your choice. You might want to bring along some images to inspire you, e.g. a butterfly, flower or dragonfly (Pinterest is a good source of inspiration). You will use glass tiles to create a mosaic for your home which can be displayed indoors. There will be a large selection of tiles in varied shapes, sizes, colours and decorative finishes available to choose from.
You will learn to cut and shape glass tiles and develop a clear understanding of the process of constructing a mosaic, which can be applied to other projects.
Your finished piece will need to be grouted at home once the adhesive is completely dry – you will be given grout and clear written instructions to take home.
This course is suitable for beginners and those who wish to develop their skills – full support and guidance will be given by the tutor. This course is not suitable for anyone under 16 years of age.
This event takes place on Saturday 14th March 11am-4pm and costs £45. Tickets must be booked through Eventbrite. Please bring a packed lunch on the day – tea and coffee will be available from the Williamson Cafe.
