Activities at The Grange

Making Mosaics with Roz Wates

Mon 16 - Fri 20 Aug 2021

Roz’s famously addictive mosaic course sets up residence for a week on the Isle of Wight: go over the basics, or try out new materials and techniques.

Creative, sociable, fun… this is a mosaic-making course for beginners and improvers. The course will cover basic mosaic skills: how to cut the tesserae and lay them down, and how to grout and finish off your mosaic; there’ll also be tuition and advice for those who’d like to advance their mosaic techniques. Materials and equipment will be provided and individually packaged by Roz (although students are welcome to bring along any materials they might like to use). There will be a materials cost of between £15 and £35 depending on the scope of your projects.

Afternoon drop-ins include:
