Your tutors Dan Rust & Julie Norburn have extensive mosaic making experience and has been teaching mosaics for many, many years. This fun course will provide the environment and guidance so that you can produce your own unique mosaic artwork to take home with you.
On this mosaic holiday you will learn the basis of cutting and shaping glass/ceramic tiles. During a range of unique meditative mosaic classes to encourage creative comfort and mindful flow moments. Working with patterns, shapes, colours, and intention. On the course you will be able to complete a mosaic mandala & a text/image mosaic for you to take back home as a reminder of your intention or wish.
Why mosaic? A perfect medium to create a pattern produced by arranging together small pieces of stone, tile and glass. Special nostalgic bits incorporated.
The beautiful and secluded retreat where your accommodation and the mosaic courses are set is surrounded by almond, lemon trees, jasmine and bougainvillea. The gardens are an ideal place to relax in the shade or to take a soothing swim in the private pool. If you like the feel of the sand between your toes you are also just 15 minutes from the fantastic coastal beaches.

“Julie’s mosaic class is one of the best experiences, you must treat yourself”
“The content was really enjoyable and eye opening. I looked forward to coming each time and I enjoyed Julie’s teaching style. Both relaxed and structured, two important parts of learning and I have appreciated the guidance and skill of your teaching. I now have my mosaic to take home and remind me every time I pass, of my intention. What a treasure and better than any therapy I’ve had!”
