Join us for these beginners-intermediate adult mosaic classes. There are two mosaic lessons on offer. 

Make a Mosaic Pendent.

Enjoy the simplicity of this type of project. It’s suitable for all ages and the end result can be enjoyed almost immediately. The supplies are easy to find, and since the dimensions are small, this isn’t an intimidating first-time custom mosaic piece. You can work with individual, pre-cut tiles, or make your own pieces from broken ceramics – just like Gaudí!

Objective:

Designed to inspire mosaic mindfulness, this will bring out some positive emotions. You will be encouraged to bring feelings of inventiveness and freedom.

These lessons will be running over two sessions from beginning to end you will create a mosaic masterpiece. Get lost in the creative process while making a statement mosaic neckpiece.

Materials:

You can use many different types of materials in the pieces. Bring your bling and broken bits. Vintage bits and bobs, old plates and flower florets, tiles. Include stained glass, jewellery, anything blingy, smalti, crockery, anything and everything that will work and enhance the globes design.
