How will I be taught?
The course provides an environment in which the student can gain knowledge and skills in the techniques of making mosaic decorated objects. The tutor will use a variety of teaching methods, including one to one tutorials, group discussions, critiques and tutor guided workshop practise. By the end of the course the students will have produced a variety of mosaic samples and projects.
You individual progress will be discussed with your tutor and will be evidenced in your growing body of work. Your learning will also be recorded in an Individual Learning Plan.
What do I need to bring with me?
Because each student will require differing amounts and types of materials, we have to charge for them at cost. Any costs are paid in class at the time of requiring the materials.
For the first session please bring a 12mm thickness piece of MDF (no bigger than A3 size) for you mosaic base, or an unglazed earthenware pot of a manageable size, (bring frost proof if project intended for outdoor use).
You should bring paper/sketchpad, pencils and a notebook. Essential tools include a tile nipper although we will be able to supply these in the lesson. Details of the cost of materials and basic tools will be discussed at the beginning of the course. If equipment and materials are required for this course you should not buy them before the first class unless advised other wise, or you are sure that the course is running.
