****CLASS NOW FULL ****
Plan ahead for a summer in the garden with new signs or decorative plaques. This weekend introduces you to two possible methods of making mosaics for your garden walls and fences.
You will use the direct method of applying frost-proof mosaic pieces to a board to make either a house sign or a decorative wall plaque. In past classes, these have included the name of the house, or number, and directional signs to the vegetable plot! You will also learn how make more intricate work onto mesh. You will make several of these pieces and use one of them to practice the transfer method onto a slate surface, thereby producing your second beautiful wallhanging of the weekend! You will take the other pieces home so that you can transfer them directly into your garden.
As the weekend progresses, you will begin to be able to differentiate between those materials that are suitable for an outdoor setting and those that are not. You will also develop cutting, glueing and grouting skills, all of which will allow you to continue to produce garden wall art long after you return home.
This course is an opportunity for you to produce a unique piece of ceramic art, working beyond traditional square mosaic tiles. You will be able to interpret your ideas in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. This weekend is suitable for beginners, improvers and adventurers!
Meet up on the Friday evening over a glass of wine, to peruse the inspirational books, talk through ideas and meet the other 'mosaicers'.
£250 sharing a room, £275 single occupancy and £180 non-residential.
Prices include B&B accommodation on Friday night and Saturday night, a welcoming glass of wine on the Friday evening at Galvelmore House with the opportunity to meet the other participants, light lunch on Saturday and Sunday, tuition by Jan Kilpatrick of Wild Tiles and all materials.
