Beginners get results
With mosaics, even as an absolute beginner, you can achieve great results. In this workshop we will explore ideas, learn about different techniques and materials. You will be designing, glueing and grouting an item. There is a choice of making a planter, stepping stone, house number or mirror.
Marion Van Oeveren, co-owner of Mahoe Hills, is a self-taught mosaic fanatic. She has make dozens of mosaics for her garden and also makes customised mirrors “that tell a story”. Marion mainly uses recycled tiles and crockery in her work. Every piece is unique and reflects the personality of the maker. From time to time we also have guest tutors.
This workshop starts with a walk through the Mahoe Hills gardens for some mosaic inspiration.
The mosaic workshop is over 1.5 days. You will be designing and glueing your item on the first day. On the second day you will be grouting your work.
You can contact us if the listed dates don’t suit and we can organise a workshop on a date that works for you.
