Join Lisa-marie at Creative Avenue York to create a Mosaic in a day! This beginners workshop will guide you through the creative process of mosaic making from selecting tessarae through to cutting, positioning and building a pleasing design. There will be templates, images and exemplar to inspire you or you can create a bespoke design of your own. This is a small group, max 6, for optimum 1-1 guidance. You will produce a Mosaic panel with a wide variety of quality glass and ceramic tessarae to choose from as well as other decorative inclusions. If you have a piece of china you would like to incorporate please bring it along! We will be using waterproof board and grout so it is equally suitable for the garden or a house number if desired. Lisa-marie is a friendly and enthusiastic practitioner, an exhibiting Mosaic Artist and a member of BAMM (British Association of Modern Mosaic) with 20 years teaching experience. Quality materials and equipment are included in the ticket price of £57. Please bring your own packed lunch, or alternatively pop to the nearby shops. Tea, coffee and cake always available!
