If you still want to attend this class, please first consider government restrictions in QLD. If you are currently allowed to attend, but are later prevented from doing so, we will either postpone your booking, or refund you. You are always welcome to gift this class.

In this three-hour class, you will learn the techniques of this ancient craft. You will learn and practice cutting tiles/glass as well as various techniques for laying the tiles (tesserae).

Using your selected template you will be guided to create your own piece of mosaic art. While we won’t have quite enough time to grout the piece you will be given easy to follow instructions to complete it at home.

The class is suitable for beginners. If you don’t finish the piece during the class you will have the skills to do so confidently in your own home. Learn how to mosaic and you will undertake a form of therapy. I guarantee once you start mosaicking you may not stop!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class

I found my passion for mosaic art over 15 years ago. I was gifted a mosaic kit and I literally spent the next week immersed in pieces of glass and old pieces of tile. I have always been a bit arty and creative. Through discovering and exploring mosaics, I felt I had come home to myself – such is the power of creativity.

Working with objects (lost and found) adds another dimension to the beauty of mosaic art. I lose myself in taking someone’s old item and creating a treasure. I love looking at an object (piece of wood, old hat, old boot) and seeing it live once more – as ART!

I love the tactile element of mosaics – to me, it is about touch and colour. I am not one who always creates flat mosaics although I do appreciate the skill involved in such works of art. I want my mosaics to be handled as a way of connecting and engaging with the art.

I have completed private commissions and look forward to holding more workshops.

Could have been nice to have more guidance around designs and shapes that suit the art. The teacher was excellent and very supportive.

Great class with Alyson. As my first taste of Mosiacs it was informative . With the take home information it means I can confidently go about trying again myself at home

I absolutely loved the class and doing mosaic. The teacher was great and very friendly and patient. Only thing I think it could have been one hour longer and paid a bit more. Would have been cool to be able to finish up. Thank for an awesome night.

Alyson was a great communicator with a structured approach to teaching, and the ability to adapt to each student’s needs. A great intro to mosaics. Plenty of room to work, materials and equipment. Convenient venue.

I liked the class but there were not enough tile cutters for everyone.

Yes, and it was very hot.
