Learn how to mosaic and create your own designed piece of garden art on a natural stone or for your driveway or patio. All materials are supplied. Available as an evening or weekend workshop. This is an ideal opportunity to re-use the broken china you've been collecting or create a personal gift using the materials provided - it could be a letterbox number or a garden ornament or even a door stop.
Learn how to create mosaic rock art using broken china, glass, and tiles. This is an inspiring and therapeutic way to create a mosaicked paver or rock for your garden or as a gift. You will go home with your own artwork and a new hobby!

Your course fee includes all materials (tiles, glue, grout, rock or paver) and a materials charge is included within the course fee.
For the weekend workshop, you'll plan and glue your mosaic on Saturday 10am - 4pm and grout/finish your piece on Sunday 10am - 1pm. The weeknight version of this course is run over 3 week nights.
