Mosaic courses run by award winning professional mosaic artist working in the UK and abroad for over 25 years on public and private commissions. Bernadette has also taught in schools, colleges and further education for 20 years.
This is a one day course ran from The Courses Room at Cedar Farm with small groups of beginners or intermediate students. Every workshop is designed to be inspiring, relaxing and fun. Students always leave happy with their works of art.
You will learn all the essential skills required to complete a mosaic plaque using the direct method. You will learn about substrates, adhesives, tesserae and how to use tools and materials safely.

3. or a mirror.
Students can choose from a wide range of glass tiles. Any tiles or crockery you may want to include in your piece please bring along. Please bring any design ideas you have with you. Bold and simple designs work best. Feel free to email me design ideas before the course starts.
If you do not finish your item you may take home any tiles you need to finish your work. All students are given a grouting kit to take away and a demonstration of how to grout is given. Or you can opt to leave the work with me and I will grout it for you to be picked up the following week from my studio in Rainford. I will also supply you with course notes which include a list of suppliers.
