Mosaics for the Garden/Summer

This course explores the craft of mosaics using various tesserae; glass tiles, china, beads and other small objects. You will create different usable or decorative pieces of work with the help of your tutor. You will make at least three different pieces of work suitable to decorate your home and garden or give as gifts and shown how to finish them off at home using grouting techniques.

You will explore different woods, stone and terracotta items, glues and surfaces that are suitable to mosaic outdoor pieces on and what types of tessarae (tiles) can be used. You will learn the safe use of tools and how to cut and place your tessarae securely to your surface. You will learn how colours, textures and tile direction can enhance your pieces of work.

The course is suitable for those who have completed a previous mosaic course or have a little mosaic experience. However complete beginners can also be accommodated. They will be shown basic techniques and encouraged to produce simple designs to start with.

“Having seen the facilities and met with the team, I was really excited to start my course. I’ve learnt so much in my time here, using specialist equipment and creating and maintaining our own garden. I can’t wait to progress and take my skills into employment.”Jamie Williams
