Make MOSAIC online with me..... FREE

Hi  - in these difficult times my course is currently free - please enrol and you can click straight through. If you are NOT on my mailing list already, please sign up on my website homepage for future offers and more tips (there is a pop up or a box in the middle of the page). I promise not to overwhelm you with messages. 

Mosaic is so absorbing, being creative can push all your troubles to one side for a time. There is a lot of advice out there on t'internet, but it's helpful, I find, to have it all in one place. 

This course is a fully comprehensive over view of everything you need to know about the ancient and addictive art of making mosaics. At first just watch, if you would like to have a go, order materials later. (There are notes about this within the courses.) 

  • 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 just requires nippers, a little dexterity and is easily achievable.
  2. It doesn't require expensive equipment or take up a lot of space.
  3. It's creative, fun, relaxing, rewarding, (just what we need right now).
  4. It's also really easy to pick up and set down, complete a bit more, and a bit more... it is so satisfying watching a design grow... piece by piece by piece.

Other courses

Here's a few other projects you might care to try....

BRAND NEW COURSE MAY 2020 ... 

Pots and Pictures using China (pictured above) £55
Recycle that saucer... Car boot sales, thrift stores, junk or charity shops, garage sales, in every part of the world someone is disposing of old china - beautiful patterns and forgotten designs will bring your work to life in a way that manufactured tiles cannot do. This course shows you how to safely and creatively use china in some imaginative and accessible projects. 


Garden Ornament design course (pictured below) £25
A fab little course that includes projects with no cutting, these are such a popular project, a favourite with my students and make a great impact in the garden dotted around in the flower beds, mounted on stakes or in water features. 

Imagine - mosaics, glinting and gleaming in your garden or pots all the year around...

About me

l teach mosaic every week and I have been doing so since 2005 (an enforced little break just now, sadly...). 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 my book, '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. 

I'm sorry the world has become a scary place, immersing yourself in some mosaic magic might just make life a little more bearable. 

So keep nipping! 

Remember to visit the FACEBOOK page, there is also a comment opportunity on every page to help us keep in touch and there is a feedback form within the course where you can comment and upload work (at the start for easy navigation, but fill it in when you finish).

You'll make these with me....
