Workshops

We run a variety of different workshops throughout the year from our arts studio at Aire Place Mills.

We have a rolling programme of workshops running on Saturdays and week days during the school holidays. These can be topical depending on the time of the year. The length of workshop can also vary from 1 hour up to 2 hours.

We are also happy to take bookings for workshops of groups of 8 or more people and the workshop will be exclusively yours with an arts worker.  We take bookings for many and arued groups, ranging from: birthday parties, Scout and Guide groups, staff team building days and corporate events.

The cost is approximately £10 per person depending on length of workshop and scale of projects.

In TWO hours create a bigger/ more intricate project

A 2 hour workshop enables you to learn mosaic techniques in depth: tile nibbling, shaping techniques and design – a more ambitious yet very do-able project (we promise!). Either choose from a project on a board or mesh (if you want to use the direct method) or bring something from home to mosaic – plant pot or table you’ve had lying around for ages. Mosaics can be created on mesh to be installed directly onto a wall.

Cost

£24 per person.

There may be a small additional cost if the project is large and will need completing at home.

*NB – Projects will need to be grouted from home. All grout is included in the cost and you will get a demonstration.
