WORKSHOP INFORMATION:

Did you know that you do not have to be "An Artist" to appreciate and enjoy making mosaics - and you don't need to know how to draw! It does help if you enjoy working on multi stage projects, savor a bit of a challenge and delight in making something you can be proud of!

Our Sooke mosaic studio has been designed to accommodate:

  • small workshops for groups up to 6,
  • individual sessions for those wanting one-to-one lessons,
  • or just provide a space to work on a mosaic with easy access to help, supplies and resources!

Larger groups or sessions with physically challenged participants can also be arranged.

Classes Offered:

* "The Basics" (Beginner or Refresher) - Make an Outdoor Garden Stepping Stone or Garden Tile

This is a comprehensive 16+ hour workshop held over 4 days, designed to give you a solid knowledge base from which to go forward and create your own mosaics!

Learn about the various types of mosaics, some basic principles of mosaic design, suitable material, substrates, adhesives, construction methods, safety issues, weatherproofing, framing/hanging alternatives, grouting, sealing and finishing. All sorts of tips and tricks are included as well as the material, tools and equipment (and FUN!) to make it happen! You will go home with your own beautiful, lasting garden mosaic art piece!

Other Classes Once you have taken " The Basics" class:

*For More than a Beginner - "Working by Section" - make an indoor mosaic, using an alternate method to the direct, grouted mosaic. This class is delves much more deeply into design elements, opus styles and andamento. Great for those who have already taken a Basics Class and want to develop their skills.

*Something Different - "Glass on Glass" - window panels and sun-catchers: involves glass fusions, stained and textured glass, and working with yet another method. Designed for those who have completed a few mosaics and are comfortable with andamento, opus, cutting, shaping, etc., and want something completely different!

Once you have taken a class or two, Private Sessions and Studio Space to create and do your own thing, with a little help, are also available!
