Mosaic Design

Use a range of materials - broken crockery, tiles, shells and more - to make a frame or simple objects of your choice.

Description

Discover the delights of mosaic design and learn how to use materials such as broken tiles, china and shells to make a mosaic frame, pot plant holder or other simple objects.

A list of materials and tools required (approximate cost $65, depending what you may already have at home) will be sent out when course numbers are confirmed. Please wear clothing and footwear suitable for a workshop environment.

You'll be able to make several pieces of mosaic to your own design and after the completion of the course, will feel confident to carry on working on your own projects. 

By the end of the four-week course, you'll be able to:
• Demonstrate the basic principles/techniques of mosaic design
• Break and cut tiles correctly
• Place tiles on the object
• Stick pieces to flat and curved surfaces
• Grout a mosaic piece
• Use stones and shells in mosaics
