Design and make your own mosaic. Explore traditional or contemporary approaches using beautiful glass and ceramic tiles. Potential projects include a decorative panel, mirror frame or small table top.
Two whole days to lose yourself in a mosaic project – bliss! Bring along your own ideas or simply turn up to be inspired. Peter will offer advice on design, materials and techniques. Grouting and finishing demonstrations conclude the workshop.
Open to both beginners and those with experience.
“Thankyou both so much for such a delightful weekend. You are superb hosts as well as teachers. We had a wonderful time. I am definitely hooked on mosaic”
Tutor: Peter Massey – MA (RCA)
Peter and Alison are the founders of Zantium Studios, a creative partnership specialising in mosaic. Their activities include designing, making and teaching. Their work has appeared in various publications, RHS shows and has been featured on Channel 4 TV.
Graduating from The Royal College of Art in 1994, Peter originally worked as an illustrator for clients such as Ladybird Books and The Natural History Museum. He developed a strong interest in mosaic and Zantium was established in 1998.
“Peter was very informative, taking us through each stage of the process in a relaxed and comfortable manner.”
