Mosaic house plaques
See course details, dates, costs, tutors & stories from students below
Create your own house name, number or decorative wall plaque on a lightweight waterproof board. During the workshop you will learn about basic ‘andamento’
(arranging tiles in flowing contours to create different decorative effects), and how to cut tiles and glass sheets.
Taught by Tess Williams, this beginners workshop will run over 2 days, with most mosaics being grouted within this time, as you will use glues that allow fast drying. For those with more complicated ideas who don’t have time to grout, you will learn the skills to finish at home.
Mosaics can be up to A4 in size. Different size boards of a similar surface area can be cut, provided notice is given prior to the workshop.
Tess Williams has been making mosaics since 2009.
Building upon the techniques she learnt on a residential course, Tess is latterly self-taught and has been further developing her skills, knowledge and designs to make
large scale tabletops, decorative wall hangings
and house numbers and names, including this one that
she made for Wernog Wood shown above.
She loves sharing her passion for mosaics with others.
