One Day Workshop description The one day mosaic workshops are designed to suit complete beginners and people with previous experience in mosaic and other crafts. Over the course of the day participants will go through all the processes involved in making a mosaic from start to finish. Each participant makes their own personalised mosaic and brings it home at the end of the workshop. Aidan’s workshops are very professionally run whilst being light-hearted, the atmosphere is friendly and easygoing. People have travelled from up to 3 hours away to attend workshops and left delighted with their mosaic and the experience.

Substrates – summary of materials used as backing for mosaics. ? Adhesives – gluing of tesserae. ? Grouting - filling the gaps (interstices) between tiles with cement based grout in a range of colours.
