WORKSHOPS    


Mosaic Workshops
At Jabezz we teach the art of mosaics - from beginners to advanced classes. Our workshops offer students the opportunity to learn the skills of this ancient art form in a relaxed, sociable and fun atmosphere. The art of doing mosaic is really quite easy and requires only a small measure of inherent artistic talent. So long as you can hold a pencil in your hand you should be fine. Inspiration for the design of your artwork is easily found in the world around you, from photographs, pictures or patterns. A wide range of Mosaic books are available to assist in design selection. Your imagination really is the only limit.

The basic Mosaic Class teaches you all you need to know about the basic mosaic skills, from design and color, to cutting and grouting. Use is typically made of porcelain tiles although glass and ceramic tiles are also available. The basic mosaic techniques will be explained, including the direct & indirect methods of application. Each stage of the process is different so there’s little chance you will be bo1red. With each step we demonstrate, explain and advise, helping you to execute your own ideas.

You will receive a workbook containing basic notes on the art of Mosaic. The prime objective of our classes is for you to relax, have fun and let the creative juices flow.

The workshop affords you a relaxing day, come along with friends or family and create a work-of-art which can be taken home and enjoyed, or given as a present to someone special – nothing says you care like a gift made with your own hands.

Material Available
Our extensive mosaic tile range for craft mosaics (interior and exterior use) includes glass mosaics, unglazed and glazed ceramic mosaics, stainless steel mosaics, handmade mosaic tiles, stained glass, natural tiles and much more. We also stock DIY kits and basic tools to start you off. Visit our studio for all your mosaic supplies.
