June Ammerdown Mosaic Course

It’s less than 2 weeks to go before my course at Ammerdown, and there are still some places left if you are interested in coming along. Beginners or those with experience can attend. You will learn the basic techniques and beyond, see a potted history slide show of mosaics through the ages, and there will be plenty of discussion about contemporary mosaics and what is HOT!

Ammerdown is a lovely relaxed  conference  and retreat centre set in beautiful gardens (they should be as one of my best friends is a gardener there!) The food is just amazing (real old fashioned English fayre, lots of it – wonderful puddings with gallons of cream – clotted or single, and cream, and oh,  did I mention cream?)

In the evenings you can stroll in the gardens or go to the bar or, as many of my students have done,  stay up really late into the night making their mosaics. Such dedication!

If you want to read about last years course then go to my post here  . You can see the mosaics that past Ammerdown students have made by visiting the workshop pages on the menu on the right.

Here are a couple of photos of the gardens to wet your appetite!

These beautiful black tulips caught my eye last year
