Mosaic Workshop with Jo Thorpe

If you love adding unique design details to your interiors and like to learn in a relaxed and fun environment, join London-based mosaic artist Jo Thorpe for a creative mosaic making workshop.

During this session you’ll work on a repeat pattern using glass and ceramic tessera, learning how to cut the tiles and to lay them using the ‘direct method’, which is the easiest technique to master. Mosaic has many practical applications, as well as adding beautiful and decorative surfaces to your home and garden, and after this taster session you’ll be able to produce framed mosaic wall panels, add decorative mosaic borders to mirrors and even embellish a plant pot.

Need to know

1) All the necessary tools and materials needed to complete a finished mosaic are provided.

2) You will be able to take away a small mosaic tile after a post-session grouting session. All students are welcome to return for this if they wish, otherwise Jo will grout the pieces for you to collect in the afternoon.

3) This class is designed for adults but enthusiastic children (12+) are welcome with an accompanying parent/guardian.

Ages 12+
