This course is an introduction to the basics of mosaic.
Starting with card mosaic you will be shown the methods of mosaic making. Then using traditional glass tiles and broken crockery you will create your own mosaic picture to take home.
Materials will be provided but feel free to bring along any chipped or broken crockery that you would like to recycle.
Once you have mastered the techniques of mosaic you will be able to use it at home to create all sorts of things from mirrors to planters!
