Mosaic Introduction Day

Out of the Blue Abbeymount, 2 Easter Road, Edinburgh EH7 5AN

For this Mosaic Introduction Day we will start with a short overview of the various methods, approaches and possibilities of mosaic making before focusing on the techniques including materials, cutting and the principles of the art. You will then work on your own mosaic, either using your own design or choosing from a selection of pre-prepared templates.

We will aim to grout the mosaics at the end of the day but if your mosaic needs time to dry, the class will include a grouting demonstration and you will take home a small bag of grout and instructions to finish the mosaic at home.

What’s included: Tools and equipment, ceramic and vitreous glass tiles, bases, adhesives and course notes. Tea, coffee and wrapped biscuits are available throughout the day. 

What to bring: An apron or big shirt and a shallow box to take your work home.

Cancellation policy: If you cancel up to two weeks before the workshop then you will receive a full refund. Otherwise, I will try to fill your place before the class and if I manage to do so then you would be refunded and if not, then there would be no refund. 
If I need to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, then I would aim to give you as much notice as possible. Unfortunately, however, I would not be able to accept liability for your travel or accommodation costs so it would be a good idea to take out travel insurance to cover these expenses in the event of a cancellation. In the event of me needing to cancel, I would aim to reschedule the class or provide you with a full refund.
