Marvellous Mosaics

Marvellous Mosaics

Mosaics have a long history dating back to the 3rd millennium BC. Create a bespoke piece of art using small pieces of ceramic tile, glass, buttons, pebbles, jewellery, and other items known as tesserae.

Use your imagination and mosaic a design of your choice onto an 8 inch by 8-inch MDF substrate (for inside use only). Any kind of tesserae can be used, and tile cutters and nippers will be provided, along with adhesive and grout in assorted colours. Draw or trace your design, choose your materials and colours, and start sticking in week one.

In week two, complete your design and leave to dry fully.

In week three, choose a colour to grout, clean and complete your personal work of art! Wall hanging fixings will be provided.

Entry requirements

No previous experience is required, just an interest in creating and art. You will need to use cutting and nipping tools so may be difficult for people with any kind of hand or wrist pain.

If you are unsure if the course is the correct level for you, please email leisure@newcollege.ac.uk to arrange a call back to discuss.

Additional resources/costs

The substrate (MDF, for indoor use only) will be provided along with tesserae for complete your mosaic. However, if you have specific items to include in your design, please feel free to bring them along. It would be helpful to have a design in mind before the course starts. Pinterest or Instagram are useful sources of inspiration.
