Mosaic for Beginners

This series of workshops run over 5 weeks on Thursday mornings; 6, 13, 20, 27 October and 3 November.

Learn how to make your own mosaic over 5 weeks with artist Valerie Dunne.

Using the small pleasures in life as inspiration, you will explore all the steps involved in planning and completing a mosaic. From creating a simple design and transferring it onto the mosaic backing, to exploring how to use contrasting colours and shaped tiles. You will learn how to cut, place and finally grout your mosaic. 

At the end of the 5 weeks, you will have your own unique piece, suitable for display outdoors or indoors. 

This workshop is for adults and all materials will be provided.

To book please contact Laura at or call her on 086 851 3940 .

These workshops are part of the Culture Connects programme. Culture Connects is a year-round programme that invites people in Dublin to try out new things.
