mosaictablesmallThis course provides an opportunity for development for those who already have already attended one of my other mosaic courses or who have some other prior experience of making mosaic.

With an increased emphasis on design, cutting skills and internal pattern-making, during the five days you will learn the reverse method of mosaicing, used to create a table top that has an even surface that is beautiful and durable. We will also find time for you to construct and mosaic a small sculpture.   A wide range of frost-proof materials will be provided and you will be taught how to paint your own glass mosaic designs and how to reclaim and cut up coloured glass from wine bottles to produce intricate shapes to add to your mosaic work.

All your work will be quite heavy, so it is an advantage if you can travel by car or arrange for your work to be uplifted.

The cost of this course includes all materials (including the table top and the sculpture form), refreshments and a cooked vegetarian lunch each day.

Jan's studio is in Elphin, overlooking the magnificent mountains of Suilven, Canisp, Cul Mor and Cul Beag. This remote location means that accommodation is a little more difficult to find, but the experience of visiting this area makes the search well worthwhile. Many course participants opt to stay in Ullapool, which is 20 minutes drive away. It is a most picturesque fishing village, with a good range of accommodation to suit all budgets. There are many restaurants and takeaways and shops, as well as some evening entertainment, should you have any energy left at the end of that day's workshop. And students often group together and car share for their daily trip up the road, past Stac Pollaidh, to the studio. Please look at the Accommodation links page to find out more.

To read about an innovative community partnership approach to preserving and improving this landscape for the benefit of all, have a look at Coigach and Assynt Living Landscapes. To find out about the fascinating geology of this area go to North West Highland Geopark.
