Mosaic Weekend Retreat
The Creative Space Studio is delighted to share the news that our lovely local hotel, Hollin Hall, has put together a specially priced package for our students.
Whether you live in close by Cheshire or far away France, you can now attend our mosaic courses without the worry of getting to a half or one day workshop.
This two day course will be taught by Debbie, a mosaic artist and teacher of over 20 years. She will show you the best substrates (surfaces) on which to mosaic, with which adhesives to use and the best tesserae for the project.
You will get the opportunity to watch demonstrations and then get your hands on and make your own art works.
Suitable for beginners and those with some experience of mosaic making, you will create two or more of:
a picassiette cake stand
a mini free-standing structure to mosaic for the garden
a mosaic mesh collection for the garden
a glass mosaic picture
a mini mosaic bird bath
a mosaic door number
Your tutor will be more than happy to help advise you on any aspect of mosaics during the weekend.
Everything is included, in the fee: equipment to use whilst here and all materials (some may be limited such as millefiori and 18ct gold tesserae)
The sessions run from 10 am to 5 pm each day, for two days, with a break for lunch. Many students take advantage of the lovely Cafe Waterside, which is next door to our studio or, weather permitting, bring a packed lunch and take a stroll up the canal.
Bollington is a delightful town with a village feel. There is so much to do here so if you are coming with your other half who may not wish to do mosaics, there is plenty to keep them occupied.
If you are interested in the residential options, please contact us on 01625 574 005 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also happy to take small group bookings at a time and a date to suit you, week days or week ends.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
These courses are for adults only though sensible 14+ year olds will be permitted at the discretion of the manager.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
There is a number 10 bus from Macclesfield, which stops at the bottom of Clarence Road and there is a 5 minute walk up an incline to the mill.
If you are driving, there a limited places on the waterside, outside the studio but more spaces at the back, where there is a multi storey car park.
If you are staying at Hollin Hall, we are a good half hour walk away.
What can I bring into the event?
You are welcome to bring designs for inspiration, objects to mosaic on to or with but you do not have to bring anything as everything is provided for you. Even an apron.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

What's the refund policy?
If you cannot attend your course, we can only offer a refund if someone has been able to take your place. In the event that we cannot fill your place, we will allow you to transfer to another session, if more than 3 days notice is given.
