Join local mosaic artist Rhona Duffy to create a playful mixed media mosaic using a mix of coloured glass and upcycled materials on slate. Chose your own motif to work from, it can be anything that inspires you…  a house number, a favourite flower, an initial or something else – you choose! Bring along a sketch or a photo and we’ll help you translate it into a motif to work from.

You’ll learn everything you need to know to create your mosaic, including sourcing materials, the tools you need and how to use them, cutting materials (glass / tiles / ceramics), the bases and adhesives you can use, and how to grout your mosaic. If there’s time, you’ll grout your mosaic on the day or else you can take away the grout and and instructional video to do it at home. All materials and use of tools are included in the cost.
