Make MOSAIC online with me.....

Hi I'm Anne Cardwell and I'm going to show you simply how to make mosaics. 

Perfect if you are you are too busy to attend classes, but can work
around your commitments and with my inspiration you'll soon get started.

  • Watch to learn the techniques in easy steps
  • Work at your own pace in your own space
  • Order materials after you have become engaged with the process

GREAT reasons to take up mosaic art

  1. It doesn't need amazing drawing skills or technical brilliance to make something beautiful, original and decorative! Breaking tiles requires nippers and a little dexterity and is easily achievable.
  2. It doesn't require expensive equipment.
  3. It doesn't take up a lot of space.
  4. It's creative, fun, relaxing, rewarding.
  5. It's also really easy to pick up and set down, just pick up the nippers and complete a bit more, and a bit more... it is so satisfying watching a design grow... piece by piece by piece.

About me. 

l teach mosaic every week and I have been doing so since 2005. As a graphic design graduate working in top London consultancies I had been making decisions about colour and style for years, it was easy to transfer this creativity to mosaic art. Nearly two decades later hundreds of students have passed through my doors and I've loved helping them immerse themselves in this wonderful art. I also run residential courses and school groups (see my website). Scroll down for samples of their work and my own portfolio.

When I wrote, 'Stylish Mosaics', I brought my many years of mosaic experience together by producing a book. Now I have done the same with this online course, but this time with lessons supported by video, notes  and commentary.
