Mosaics Weekends with Rosalind Wates – 1/2 December 2018

Piece together your creativity on Rosalind Wates’ Mosaic Weekend. 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! 

These immersive experiences are suitable for all abilities. Students can be taught how to design and work on their own mosaics or improve on skills they already have. With a broad range of tiles to use, the possibilities for creating lovely mosaics are endless.
