Art Coursejoanna-dewfall
with Joanna Dewfall 10am – 5pm
Maximum Participants: 12

Day One

You will learn about the various mosaic materials and techniques of cutting and setting.  You will make a 25cmsq panel on board on the first (or only) day.

Day Two

You will make a 30cmsq mosaic slab for the garden on a concrete paver. The tutor will assist you to make sure you have a simple bold design to mosaic.  The tutor has templates available to use if need be.  You will mosaic the design in reverse during the day and, if complete in time, the tutor will assist you to set the design in cement adhesive on the paver.  The tutor has run this workshop numerous times and everyone always leaves with a completed paver. However, if a student has not finished the mosaic in time they can take away a paver and adhesive to fix at home. Grouting will be demonstrated but you will need to complete this at home – grout and full instructions included. Please note the concrete pavers are not suitable to be transported home on a bicycle!

After completing a course in workshop facilitation she moved to the Gloucestershire area where she met local creative Steffi Stern, and they have worked together ever since, writing the book Making Needle Felted Animals together which came out in 2015, and have created a business based around the book called The Makerss, through which they are able to share  with others their  enthusiasm for making, love of natural materials, and creative skills.
