Mosaic Course for Beginners

Two day introduction to mosaics in the heart of Kyneton



2 x 5 hours Class size 1 to 10

label $200 - $215 (or 4 payments of $50 - $53.75 Afterpay)
($215 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $200 for 2+ guests)

Come along to our custom-built studio, in our historic precinct and try your hand at making a mosaic wall plaque to take home!

You will be shown how to transfer your chosen design from paper to your substrate, then we will choose your colours, paying attention to the textures, opacity and how to manage negative and positive spaces in your design. You will be shown how to achieve different effects using different shapes, sizes, textures and materials to create depth and interest in their works. There will be some mosaic glass tiles and broken porcelain to help create accents in your design as well.

You will be guided through how to shape your glass using mosaic nippers and then refining it with our glass grinders. Once you have your design and colour scheme sorted you will be ready to start attaching it to your substrate. Using the direct method we will start creating your mosaic, once you have your main features down we will work with you to fill in the gaps and make sure your positive and negative space is well balanced. You should finish glueing down your mosaic by the end of Saturday.

On Sunday once your glue has set overnight we will show you how to grout and then clean your mosaic ready to take home! The grout takes 1-2 weeks to fully cure, then it can be displayed outside on a wall with pride!

Lunch will be provided on the first day using all local organic produce and cater for any dietary requirements you may have. Tea and coffee facilities are available throughout the course.

The class will run on a Saturday and Sunday to allow for drying time between processes. We anticipate that you will be completed in time to check out one of our great local cafes for a late lunch on Sunday.

Session 1: 10:30am- 3:30pm Saturday (includes break for lunch with catering provided)
Session 2: 10:30am - 12.30pm or until your project is finished on Sunday (some participants may finish their projects earlier)

The Mosaic Workshop for Beginners was fantastic, I had so much fun on the weekend. It was a two-day class & the teachers were great, both Rhain & Ettore were very thorough & patient with each student. The venue was in a great location, we had lots of room to work, all of the materials were provided, lots of colors to choose from for our mosaic piece. A lovely lunch with coffee was provided on-site, we were very relaxed & felt like we were amongst family by the end of the weekend's session. I learnt how to do the mosaic process from start to finish, beginners of course but I left feeling confident knowing the steps needed & materials to go ahead & start my own project at home. I can see myself doing this craft as a fun hobby at home. It's great value for money & I would recommend this beginners class to anyone interested in learning mosaics. Thank you again. Take care, Kimberley.

What a great venue for learning a new craft. The Mosiac for beginners class was very enjoyable. The teachers were lovely and made it easy to follow and fun. All materials were supplied, with lots of glass tiles, broken porcelain pieces and beads to choose from. Everyone's piece turned out so different. Thank you to The Old Auction House crew, I will be back for more classes in the future

Unfortunately the class was interrupted by lockdown.
The time we had was great!
Everything was explained really clearly and there were ample supplies to select from.
I can’t wait for the rest of the class to take place.

Very helpful and supportive instructional environment, also ensuring it wasn’t intrusive making sure you did things yourself to maximise learning. Good course length, and you come away with what you made. Tasty lunch as well.
