Saturday Mosaic Workshop

We have saved 842 tonnes of paint to date!
We collect and reuse over 170 tonnes of paint per year.
We work with over 50 volunteers per year

Making something beautiful out of something broken

Each workshop is open from 10am until 4pm, the last bookable slot being at 2.00pm to allow enough time to complete a simple mosaic before closing.

Everyone is welcome – children, groups, individuals, it’s great to see you all. From experience we recommend an hour slot for younger children to complete a pre cut shape and a minimum of two hours for adults to have more time to complete a bespoke and more ambitious mosaic. If you run over your booked time and there is room in the studio you can stay longer and pay the extra on the day. It is tricky to gage how long a mosaic will take to complete but if it is your first it’s likely to take longer than you expect! If you just want to have a go at a small pre cut shape then an hour should be OK.

We will send you home with instructions and enough grout to finish your piece when it has dried.

Cost

Workshops cost £15 per hour. We like to receive payment in advance via PayPal.

A few things to have clear before making your mosaic in order to maximize time spent on your piece

  • Is it going to go indoors or outdoors? Permanently fixed or moveable? The board/mesh and adhesive used will depend on these.
  • A rough idea of a design or image, most people have them stored on their phones or bring in a paper copy – this will save a lot of time!

Did you know?  We also run private mosaic workshops for children’s parties, hen dos, community groups, corporate days and so on. Your party can come to us or we can come to you (numbers depending). Please call Seagulls for more info.
