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, ceramic and vitreous glass tiles, bases, adhesives and course notes.

What to bring: An apron or big shirt, design ideas and a shallow box to take your work home. Due to Covid, we will not be able to offer teas and coffees but please bring your own reusable mug and you are welcome to use the kettle.

COVID-19: The number of students will be limited to four in order to ensure Covid-safe distancing, students will be required to wear visors and each student will have use of their own sanitised tools. In addition, there are hand sanitising points and a one-way system in the building. If you have any specific questions or concerns about Covid safety, please don’t hesitate to ask.
