10 am start

What better way to free your mind from the stresses of the world, whilst learning new or developing existing skills with an artist with over 20 years of creative practitioner and teaching experience.

This weekend retreat will give you the opportunity to indulge yourself in mosaic making, in a small group setting.

The working area is actually in the artist's own studio.

Although the course is suitable for any ability, if you have never tried mosaic before, we would strongly recommend that you attend our 3 hour workshop prior to committing to a full weekend of mosaic making.

What you can expect:

Day 1

10 am - warm welcome and introductions, with a brew!

10:15 - 10:45 - By now, Debbie will have gone through your design ideas and requests and will have prepared your requirements. She will demonstrate how to cut tesserae safely and how to create a mosaic using the direct method (we offer the in-direct mosaic method on our alternative weekend retreat.)

10:45 - 13:00 - Your tutor will guide you as you create your mosaic, whilst providing you will unlimited tea or coffee on request.

13:00 - 14:00 - Time for lunch! Included in the price, you will be served with a bowl of home made vegetarian soup with a bread roll.

14:00 - Back to work! Though in our experience, students like to work through lunch. Continue creating your masterpieces.

17:00 - Finish! So sorry to say goodbye but we will see you tomorrow.

Day 2

10:00 - Catch up and recap with a brew!

10:00 - 17:00 Make mosaic!

As each of you will be working on a different project, demonstrations will be given on request and if deemed appropriate. There will be time to grout pieces created on day 1 if required.

Everything is included in this two day workshop - all you have to do is turn up end enjoy.

Here are a couple of testimonials from students who have attended earlier courses:

"Attended the Mosaic course for beginners with my Mum on Friday. Lacking much creative confidence I was nervous as to what I'd actually be able to achieve. However, Debbie is amazing and puts you totally at ease, with lots of laughs along the way. I finished my tile & I can honestly say I never thought I would be proud of any sort of art I would produce. Thank you so much we'll definitely be back. I think I might have caught the Mosaic bug and I'm looking at trying to create some pieces at home...Clare"

"We went for a mosaic beginners session this weekend and had a lovely time. Debra could hardly be more attentive and helpful. She is also clearly really experienced and good at what she does. Thanks Deb. - Kate”
