2-day Mosaic Summer School with Rosalind Wates – 1/2 August

2-day Mosaic Summer School with Rosalind Wates - 1/2 August

Come piece together your creativity on Rosalind Wates Mosaic Summer Workshop Extra. She’s an artist inspired by the natural world and she specialises in mosaics. She also loves to pass on her passion on to others! 

Mosaic making in an informal and friendly setting for beginners and experienced mosaicists. Learn how to cut and arrange the tesserae, and how to grout and complete the mosaic. Experienced students can try out new techniques. Students may wish to bring their own materials, although everything needed to create a small mosaic (including glass and ceramic tesserae) will be available during the course, at prices competitive to those found at shops and suppliers. Contact Roz beforehand if you’d like further information.

We’ll cover classic mosaic styles, and students will gain a thorough grounding in skills and techniques, although the emphasis of the course is on individual creativity. It’s fun, creative, absorbing, and sociable!

This workshop includes:

  • Informal, relaxed & attentive guidance for every student, provided by Roz Wates
  • Step-by-step demonstrations covering…
  • How to plan your design so it is ready for mosaicing
  • How to cut your tiles to the shapes you want
  • How to fix the tiles in place
  • How to grout and finish your piece

These two days are particulary suitable for beginners. You may want to come for more than two days in which case Mosaic Summer School may be a better idea – click here for more details.
