at Tricia’s studio near Hereford, UK
NEW dates for 2019:
26 - 27 January
9 - 10 February
23 - 24 February (garden slab mosaic course)
On my mosaic courses you will discover this ever popular, ancient, therapeutic art form and produce your own mosaic to take home. I will create a wonderful atmosphere for learning the art and craft of mosaics and my passion for the process is contagious. All levels of ability welcome, just bring along your enthusiasm and a curiosity to explore this magical medium of mosaic on a two day mosaic course, to include all course materials, refreshments and lunch.
The mosaic garden slab course is over two full days in the studio followed by a half-day one week later (when the cement has cured sufficiently to be able to remove the slab from the wood frame). The half day can be arranged to suit. Students wishing to try the garden slab mosaic course should preferably already have some experience in mosaic making. We use the “indirect” method for the slabs where the tesserae are initially temporarily fixed upside down onto the paper base which has your design template, then back-filled with cement and an aluminium mesh for tensile strength. The excitement mounts for the big reveal when the mosaic slab is removed from the frame, the slab turned over and the paper peeled away. After a little grouting and polishing, the masterpiece is now in full view!
As we use only weather and frostproof materials the garden slab is suitable for outdoor siting: in the ground on a driveway or footpath, in gravel or a soil bed, in a lawn, or perhaps cement fixed to a wall. The possibilities are endless.
If you would like to discuss mosaic commissions for your business or home, or are looking to join one of my mosaic workshops please get in touch. We offer B&B accommodation in our home for our workshop participants, with their partners and friends. If you are interested in alternative dates please let me know. I am very happy to run workshops at any time of the year.

We live in a large country house which started out as a 16th century farmhouse and was extensively enlarged in the late 19th century. We have our own walled Victorian vegetable and fruit garden, beautiful lawns and patio areas in which to relax and enjoy BBQ evenings.
After a hard day being creative in the mosaic studio, there is truly nothing better than sitting in the garden on a balmy summer's night, or in front of an open log fire in the lounge on a cold and frosty evening, fellow mosaic artists and friends around you sharing the day's creative experience, glass of wine in hand and relaxing. A little corner of heaven here in beautiful Herefordshire.
