Mosaic Projects for the Home and Garden

Ref: C2346893

Projects for the home can be up-cycled objects such as lamp bases, or mirrors frames, or more challenging projects undertaken such as a splash back for a bathroom. For the garden, you will learn which materials are suitable to ensure your mosaics will survive in our climate. You will look at examples of contemporary mosaic artists that create exterior mosaics and will be encouraged to design mosaics to suit your outside space as we look and discuss several different methods. Possible projects include, a house number, a planter, a stepping stone. Suitable for both beginners and those with experience – all welcome.
