Course overview

Take your mosaic skills to the next level! This advanced course allows you to build on your existing abilities and enthusiasm for this versatile art form. You will develop and complete a complex design or method that is specific and unique to you. With guidance and advice, you will be provided with support as you go through each stage. By now you will have understood and practised various mosaic techniques and become adept at using the tools and materials. This is a chance to continue developing design and cutting skills and to allow your personal style to evolve.

Course description

The main aim for this Advanced Mosaic course is for you to undertake a more complex mosaic using skills learnt from previous experiences - be that through the method, the design, or the intricacy. You will be encouraged to undertake your own research, plan and design your project. You will also learn how to estimate the cost of your project in advance, as you would if you were commissioned by a potential customer. You may want to understand more about selling your work to make a profit. You will also develop your digital skills by engaging in online discussions, uploading examples of your work, reflecting on your own progress and evaluating your work and that of others.

In addition to this main task, other projects will be suggested such as micro mosaics, as well as a proposal to try a method, technique, or material that you have not yet undertaken.

All equipment is provided, or you can bring your own. Most students will need to purchase some materials from the tutor at cost price; depending on the project this might include china, glass, bases, adhesive and grout, etc. Aprons are provided or you can bring your own.
