Create a fantastic mosaic for your garden and learn how to mosaic on a 3D surface. Butterflies, ladybirds, owls and frogs etc all look fabulous in the garden all year round, so begin your own menagerie by creating your favourite creature using jewelled stained glass. Or if you prefer, bedeck your pebble with flowers, hearts or any design you wish.

Your day will include:
– Learn how to mosaic on a 3D surface.
– Find out what materials are best to use for an outdoor mosaic.
– Explore how to use cutting tools to get the best for your design.

Pebbles will be provided, but if you have one you would like to bring and use, a good size would be one that fits comfortably into the palm and fingers of your hand and have a flat(ish) surface.

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences. You can even leave us to clear up the mess! There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to.

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-morning break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Lunch is usually around 12:45 for about 45 mins – you can expect a homemade 2 course lunch. The main course will be delicious but don’t overdo it as the puds are usually worth waiting for! There will be a further afternoon break with the most wonderful cakes from Roots & Fruits Home Bakery, a North Yorkshire micro-bakery producing handmade bread and cakes. All food and refreshments are included in the price of the workshop.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

We aim for your day to be a real treat… of course you could always learn a new skill in a shed or a draughty village hall with a curly sandwich, but we want you to have more fun than that! So we make it a day being looked after, with good food, good company and great inspiration!

What you’ll need to bring with you

Please bring the following if you have them:
- An apron - grouting can be messy.
- A pair of tweezers.
- Small pointed tool such as a metal nail file or very small screwdriver.
- An idea/inspiration for your design - could be a favourite photo or drawing.

Pebbles will be provided, but if you have one you would like to bring and use, a good size would be one that fits comfortably into the palm and fingers of your hand and have a flat(ish) surface.

Please be aware that both glass and crockery shards are sharp
