CreateMosaic offers a variety of workshops in the Art of Mosaic and Creative Expression. Here you can indulge your passion for broken tiles, ancient patterns and images, and make work that delights and intrigues both maker and audience in the modern medium of mosaic.
The workshops are run by practising mosaic artist, Debra Collis, who has taught both mosaics and art to a wide range of people over many years. She has also ran mosaic workshops with school & community groups and produced mosaic designs for private commissions.
Find us in North West London's Kingsgate Workshop Trust, a thriving art and craft studio hub and gallery, just off Kilburn High Road, NW6. Refreshments are provided in the workshop itself as well as the recently opened Cafe opposite Kingsgate Community Centre . Parking is also free for weekend workshops.
In the classes, Debra introduces you to the techniques in the modern and traditional laying styles or andamento and processes linking back to Roman times. Lessons will also help you with steps to creating a mosaic design, and tools and techniques of working with a variety of materials. Each student will be encouraged to find their own style and explore their individual creative journey in this medium.
