I have worked on and off with mosaic for 10 years. I now run classes at my studio in Nettleham and would like to bring that experience to you at the Sam Scorer Gallery. Mosaic is a craft that is achievable to all, no prior knowledge required.
All tools, materials, guidance and enthusiasm for you to create your own bespoke mosaic stone is provided for. It’s a great opportunity to meet up and make friends. On this first session you will make your mosaic stone, it then needs to dry so that it can be grouted and competed.
The second half day session to finish your mosaic will take place on Thursday January 18th from 2-4pm.
