Making Stepping Stones in the Studio.

A Word about my courses.

Stained Glass Mosaics :

Most of my work  involves using stained glass as the medium to create a Mosaic Project and in this course students learn how to design, cut and work with stained glass as the primary medium. At our studio we have a large selection of stained glass available and students can choose colours and transparent or opaque glass of their choice for their project.  Also available are glass beads and ceramic tile which work well alongside stained glass in most projects.


Mixed Media Mosaics :

This method is sometimes known as Piqueassiette and comes from the French word which translated is: 'stolen from a plate' and alludes to the French practice of creating art from broken crockery. Vintage and broken crockery is used along with stained glass, beads, ceramic, found objects and even buttons and old jewellery to make something personal, quirky, vintage or just plain pretty.


Garden Mosaics:

This can include wall art, house signs, gazing balls, cement toadstools and vases. These are created using materials suitable for outdoors and personalised for each individual student.


Stepping Stones:

Mosaic Stepping Stones can be made in two methods ie: the direct method which involves working directly on to an existing stepping stone or the indirect method which uses cement which is poured on top of your design and left to set. Both are very popular methods of creating unique garden art.


We have a large selection of everything needed to create stunning and unique mosaic art and students are encouraged to bring along pieces of their own if they wish ie: old tables, bowls, vases, pieces of jewellery and broken crockery. 

We also emphasise the importance of each student's personal taste and allow for lots of flexibility (within reason) in our classes. 


At Blue Sky Mosaics we offer more than just an exercise in creativity, we provide a relaxing and beautiful environment to work in and an opportunity to escape the daily rush. Each student is encouraged to work at their own pace with lots of individual tuition and to leave with a beautiful piece of unique Mosaic Art.
