Mosaic projects encourage creative and practical learning through structured teaching methods, including topical discussions, designing for purpose, constructing to aid visualisation of outcome, all aiding in the process of design.
Practical mosaic techniques are then introduced to bring colour theory, movement and texture to the design inspired by the depth and beauty of the materials supplied.
Demonstrations on the use of tools and techniques of stencil making, bring insight to the process on manufacture.
These projects promote educated problem solving, group working and focused making, to create beautiful glass mosaics that echo the theme or topic of choice to be enjoyed by pupils and their communities.
