Join us in the studio for five blissful days of mosaic! Open to both beginners and those with experience, this course offers a great choice of projects and techniques. The possibilities are endless – table tops, splash backs, terracotta pots, paving slabs…
Throughout the week there will be talks, demonstrations and lots of uninterrupted making time. Peter will offer design and technical advice to the group or on an individual basis. Try your hand at different styles using a range of beautiful materials. Tackle one large project or experiment with several smaller ones.
“Thank you once again, for the most enjoyable time I had on your course. As ever, the tuition (and food!) were superb.”
Tutor: Peter Massey – MA (RCA)
