Mosaics Courses - LEVEL 1, 2 and 3

I run 3 one-day courses which together cover most of the techniques you'll need to create your own mosaic.

DAY 1 PROJECTS - picture frame, lightcatcher, terracotta saucer, heatmat

LEVEL 1 - The Basics

We’ll be working on a flat, regular-shaped object and a design using  straight-edged mosaic tiles.

We’ll be focusing on:-

  • How to create a simple design
  • Use of colour
  • Laying the tiles (2 basic techniques)
  • Basic cutting of tiles – for straight-edged shapes
  • Direct method of gluing the tiles
  • Grouting
  • Cleaning your piece
DAY 2 PROJECTS - flower pot, picture, mosaic boulder and tile

LEVEL 2 - Basics continued

We’ll be working on a simple 3D object and learning how to 'draw' with mosaic tiles.

 

We’ll also be focusing on:-

  • Further use of colour
  • Laying the tiles (4 techniques)
  • Cutting the tiles – for shaped and curved patterns
  • Direct method of gluing – onto 3D objects
  • How to colour the grout

LEVEL 3

Will help you develop the techniques you’ve learnt on the previous two courses. You have a choice of:-

  • The same projects as Level 2, but with more detailed design options

OR.......

  • I have a box of large & interesting objects ideal for a mosaic project, with a difference!

OR.......

  • You can bring a project from home (approx A4 in size) - send your ideas to me and I'll prepare your design so it is suitable for your mosaic project, and ready for you to immediately start (but I cannot guarantee you’ll finish in a day.)

Our day at Anna's studio was a great experience. Anna is a very calm, friendly & warm teacher/host. We’re looking forward to book another great session

Our finished stained glass pieces were definitely something for us to be proud of.
Both of us are keen to go back and do another course with Anna soon!

Techniques are explained by Anna so well & it's a true mix of doing what is suggested & then adding your own unique style or twist Can't recommend highly enough
