Anne Schwegmann-Fielding – Upcycled Mosaic 2 day course
Two Day Course
Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th February
This course is limited to 10 people
Create your own panel using ceramic and glass tesserae along with a variety of recycled materials. Learn all the techniques needed to complete your own project under the guidance of renowned Mosaic Artist Anne Schwegmann-Fielding.
ALL MATERIALS INCLUDED
Mosaic is a wonderfully versatile medium. Using a range of colours and materials, you can transform simple designs into beautiful mosaics which will last forever!
The workshop enables you to explore techniques and materials whilst making an individual piece of work. We will be working mainly with the direct method, which is sticking tiles directly to the surface. The materials available are glass and ceramic tesserae, bathroom tiles, old china, buttons, mirror and other recycled materials, all in a range of colours from subtle to vibrant.
The day will provide all the basic techniques needed to complete further and more ambitious projects at home! There will be plenty of books to hand for design ideas, should you need them.
Personalise your work with any old bits of broken crockery or jewellery from home which you can’t bear to throw away – embed them into the mosaic and keep them forever.
Includes homemade lunch and refreshments
What you will need to bring
Crockery, jewellery, buttons or beads that you want to incorporate
Imagination – and/or picture reference or sketches
Everything else from panels, to tiles, adhesive, grout, and cutters are provided

Since restarting our events in summer 2020, we have introduced changes to the way we operate; including reduced class sizes. The studio has been re organised to enable everyone to remain socially distant whilst at their workstation and hand sanitiser is provided. A large video screen has been mounted on the wall to enable everyone to view demonstrations from where they are working, eliminating the need to gather around the tutor. Lunch is now in the form of a packup to be eaten at your workstation; it may be served hot or cold. Drinks are available all day on a self serve basis.
Please try to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before the event begins to allow plenty of time to get settled in. The wearing of face masks is not required whilst at your workstation, but we would ask you to use one when moving about the studio.
