Primrose Mosaics: Glass Mosaic Workshop

Garden Bunting -  Swindon, Wiltshire

Saturday 21st March 2pm- 5:30pm / Sunday 22nd March 11:30am- 1:30pm

This workshop is suitable for any ability. It is the first time I have run this option, so am offering a reduced rate, so that we can test out timings. I am estimating you will create between 3-5 flags depending on your designs and experience. Each flag measures 16 x17cm. 

If you are new to mosaics and glass cutting…no worries! I can teach you all the cutting, placing, sticking and grouting techniques you need to get started using glass to mosaic with. 
And if you already have some experience, thats fine, you can get straight onto designing and creating your bunting flags.

I have examples of designs, which I can teach you step by step or you can adapt or make up your own. 

Your bunting will be weather resistant, so can be put outside to brighten your garden 

 

I can promise a friendly and relaxed atmosphere- the perfect opportunity to chill out doing something for yourself for a change! Whether you feel creatively confident with your own ideas or need support and inspiration, I keep the groups small so that I can offer individual 1:1 help when you need it.

 

Cost includes all tuition, use of tools and materials.

Class Size: Max 6 people.

Ideal to give as a gift - I can email you a voucher to print with a unique code.
