Description

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

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, a wide selection of materials from ceramic and vitreous glass to found objects, bases, adhesives, course notes and teas/coffees/biscuits.

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