About Course

(NOTE: The start date of this course has been changed from the 19 August to the 26 August)

Mosaic can be small and functional or big and just for fun in the garden. Make a mosaic framed mirror, photo frame, table top, or a mosaic garden sculpture. Mosaic can be anything you want it to be. These projects can be partly or fully mosaiced. Make your own clay tiles or symbols to personalise your project. Try making a 3D form or totem for the garden. Learn to plan and problem solve together on larger personal projects as you move into new creative experiences.

YOUR PROJECT
Come prepared to start or simply come prepared to discuss ideas and look through resource books to decide upon your project and plan for the next week.
REQUIREMENTS TO GET YOU STARTED
ü Flat edged tile nippers approximately $20 from hardware/ Bunnings stores. Great for crockery and ceramic tiles.
ü Glass cutters are for art glass (leadlight glass) and glass tiles. They can be used on crockery and will blunt blunt more quickly over time.
ü Old towel for cutting tiles on.
ü Safety glasses.
ü Tiles and crockery: Johnson 10x10cm tiles from Bunnings are easy to work with and crockery gives you lots of colour and decorative pattern choices. Avoid floor tiles because they are very hard to cut.
ü Pictures of ideas for your project, pencil and paper for your design.
ü Adhesive for your project.- this can be decided on the first night if you are unsure.
ü Wellbond PVA – a flexible and great adhesive for mosaicers, always handy to have.
