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.
