Time will be given to discuss materials, methods, tools and techniques as dictated by the interests of the group and time available.

The pebble mosaic will then be cast in a special cement and can be collected at a later date once it has cured.

Tools, materials and are included in the cost. Hot and cold drinks will be provided, just bring your lunch.

David has a wealth of knowledge on the history, techniques and practical applications of mosaics from Byzantine to modern day innovations, which he is happy to share. He is very approachable and will give you all the help you need to make your mosaic.

"I had been interested in taking a mosaic course for a while and this course was a gift – lucky me! I learnt so much from David who was really generous with his knowledge and the practical session was really well structured. Both David and Caroline were amazing at gently steering me in the right direction. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning how to do this gorgeous craft." - Sara Ford

"Both Jenna and myself had a fantastic day at your workshop. As well as being Informative it was great fun.
The course itself was well planned giving all the information needed and with constant help on hand made the tricky bits easy. For someone like myself with very little artistic talent it was immensely satisfying to produce a beautiful mosaic stone that is now sitting proudly in my patio". - Peter

"I attended a Pebble Mosaic Course at Olicana Mosaics and made an aconite shaped piece to incorporate into my garden. The choice of pebbles to use in the project was vast, and David and Caroline were so knowledgeable and patient in their teaching. We were a small group of students so had very personalised tuition with everyone achieving excellent results. A thoroughly enjoyable day.” - Jill

"An amazing workshop run by lovely David and Caroline. Who knew pebbles could be so exciting, I created a gorgeous mosaic piece that will be with me for ever. David and Caroline were patient, encouraging, inspiring…… I could go on…….. I can thoroughly recommend this workshop, you’ll love it!” - Jessica
