One Day Mosaic Workshop
 
Learn the essential basics of the ancient art-form of mosaic. Everyone can do it.
.
Making mosaics is very therapeutic. The engagement required to cut the shapes and piecing the puzzle together is a very intuitive, fun and fulfilling process. Be warned though it is highly addictive. Aidan’s workshops are very professionally run whilst being light-hearted, the atmosphere is friendly and easy-going. People have travelled from up to 3 hours away to attend workshops and left delighted with their mosaic and the experience. 
 
Participants will learn about:  
 

  • Design planning. 
  • Tesserae – cutting and shaping tiles. 
  • Andamento - Arranging tiles to create a pattern or image. 
  • Substrates – Summary of materials used as backing for mosaics.
  • Adhesives – Gluing of tesserae. 
  • Grouting - Filling the gaps between tiles with cement based grout in a range of colours 
 
The one day mosaic workshops are designed to suit complete beginners and people with previous experience in mosaic and other crafts.  
Over the course of the day participants will go through all the processes involved in making a mosaic from start to finish. Each participant makes their own personalised mosaic and brings it home at the end of the workshop, The project options include: wall hanging panels, pot-stands, mirrors, coaster sets and more
