Stir up your inner artist and get snapping! Try your hand at creating a mosaic of your favourite wild creature, focussing on either a full body, or a head portrait where more detail can be achieved. At beginner or intermediate level, you will be taken through the mosaic process of design, colour, cut, shape, place, fix and grout. Working on a board, you will select your style from the seven types of Andamento or direction and flow of tiles. Using best practice techniques, you will shape specific characteristics like eyes, beaks and tails using various cutting tools. You will also learn how to blend colours and texture to create personality and movement and then start to see your mosaic masterpiece take shape.
