Description

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 of the art including materials, cutting, adhesives and grouting. You will then work on your own mosaic, either using your own design or choosing from a selection of pre-prepared templates. Your mosaic will need time to dry so 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.

COVID-19: We require that all participants take a lateral flow test within 24 hours of attending the course. Students will be required to wear masks while moving around the work area and within the building but not while seated. The number of students will be limited to six in order to ensure reasonable distancing. If you have any specific questions or concerns about Covid safety, please don’t hesitate to ask.
