“I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay their foundations with sapphires. And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.” Isaiah 54:11-12

If you re considering taking a mosaic course just to use up all of the broken glass left under the table after last months especially messy party then think again; there s a lot more to it than chucking a bit of glue on different coloured glass and sticking it on a table. Mosaics is the art of creating images with small pieces of coloured glass, stone, or other materials and is used in many ways like as a decorative art, interior decoration and to symbolise cultural or spiritual significance in a church.

Tesserae blocks are the basic building blocks that form the mosaic. These can include smalti, vitreous glass, marble and stone; all of which can be used to make a great variety of mosaics.

It s origins lie in Roman, Byzantine, and Greek culture and today there are no limits to what can be created; the most modern uses are for mirrors, walls, and murals; however, you can also use it to create beautiful and original pots or lamps. A night course in mosaics will mean that birthday presents and wedding gift nightmares will be a thing of the past and your artistic brilliance will be common knowledge

A course in mosaics will teach students to unleash their creativity and make their own designs in an
interesting and inventive way in a process that when learned, is extremely rewarding and incredibly beautiful.
