This course runs in two formats. An evening course with classes 6 - 9pm over three Mondays starts 16 March 2020. A weekend course runs 22-23 August 2020 10am - 4pm on Saturday and 10am - 1pm on Sunday.
Come and learn how to make your own contemporary mosaic art masterpiece to hang in your living space.
You'' learn how to create beautiful mosaic art using recycled, broken china and found objects. This is a very inspiring and therapeutic way to spend a weekend by fitting broken pieces together and creating something new.
All materials are provided, with an emphasis on recycled and expressive art. You are welcome to bring your own china or special pieces to include in your artwork, if you wish. For the weekend course, on Saturday, we'll plan and glue our art works. On Sunday, we'll grout and clean them. For the evening course, grouting will happen on the final night.
At the end of the course, you'll have your own unique mosaicked wall hanging (approximately 20 - 30cm).
What to bring: All materials (china, cement bowl, adhesive and grout) are provided. You can bring any special pieces you'd like to include in your piece. A few plastic ice-cream containers or yogurt containers for collecting your pieces is helpful. Apron and plastic gloves for grouting (optional).
For the weekend course, bring your lunch. We will provide tea and coffee in the staffroom.
