Mosaics have never ceased to fascinate and engage many people across the ages. Teach Me are now running a ONE DAY MOSAIC TASTER using the direct method of mosaics. You will create a small sample piece which will be grouted by the end of the day. You will also create a larger piece but this may need to be completed at home depending on the complexity of your design. All boards, glue, tiles and tools are provided. However, we will provide you with enough tiles and grout for you to finish if you run out of time during the day. Mosaics are difficult to complete in one day as the adhesives need to dry completely. You may wish to bring some broken china or other items to include in your work to add a personal touch. See booking page for course programme
