Mosaic parties

The mosaic workshop has proved to be so popular at festivals and events that it is now available for private parties in the home, in the garden or any hired space. Areas covered are South Wales, Bristol and Avon, Gloustershire and in and around London. Other areas considered so please ask.

They are suitable for children, both boys and girls, from abou
t 7 years old (younger siblings welcome but may need supervision) - and the workshop can complement a party theme or colour theme (football colours, pink n' purple, black n' white) All materials and equipment will be provided - even tables if necessary - and mess will be minimal and easily swept up after the workshop.

It is also suitable for adult get-togethers such as hen parties, staff team building exercises, inset training, book clubs or gardening groups.

Whatever your age or ability, you will finish up with an original artwork which will be both beautiful and hard wearing. You will also learn the basic skills of this ancient art - after which you could pursue a brand new hobby!

Mosaic objects you can make include:- mirrors and pictures, coasters and teapot stands, door numbers and name plates, key fobs and pendants, pots and sculptures, masks and mobiles, stepping stones and plant markers etc etc...

The workshop would last approximately 2 hours, with a gap in-between for grouting, when food can be served and games played, and each child will make a mosaic finished and grouted to take away - and no mess.
