DROP-IN / THEMED
As a way in to new ideas or motifs for your Mosaic, these workshops will be based on a colourful still life theme. You can also work on your own project.
Make a composition from a tableau of objects including vase of flowers, bottles, pots and plants etc provided or bring in your own photo of a still life arrangement.
You can initiate your composition by drawing from the objects themselves (highly recommended!) then develop the theme further in mosaic by exploring surface textures, composition or contrasting shapes.
With advice and support and access to useful resources such as tools, glues, studio equipment in a ready equipped studio, Mosaic Club sessions may be just the ticket! Plus there are tiles & boards available to purchase (or free!)& good stock selection, as well as advice on where to buy.
This is a friendly & supportive atmosphere to work in and storage for your materials/project is also available.
