The snows of the Scottish Cairngorm mountain range give wonderful camouflage for the hares whose coats turn white in Winter as they hop around the landscape or snuggle down into the snow to rest.
Spend a fantastic day with Julie, learning the essentials of working with mosaic to create a mosaic snow hare. Using the cool colours given, create your own Mountain Hare using glass of varied shapes and texture over your own designed and painted background.
Working to this single design you will:
– Paint out the background.
– Draw outline of the hare.
– Work with a limited palette of colour.
– Use cutting techniques to create tesserae of specific shapes.
– Realise the relationship between the painted background and transparent textured glass.
All mosaic materials and equipment are provided.
Please note there is a £20 material charge payable on the day
Grouting may need to be completed at home but a demonstration will be given in session.
You will go home with a 6 inch square mosaic panel containing your design which will be suitable for display indoors only.

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 or be aware of the following:
- Bring an apron or wear non-favourite comfy clothes as grouting can be messy.
- Please be aware that glass shards can be sharp.
- Please wear full footwear - avoid flipflops or sandals.
