Report Abuse

An informal creative day making a mosaic plaque providing you with all the skills necessary to start making your own mosaics at home.

Saturdays November 7, 2020 and April 17, 2021.

10:30am – 5pm.

No previous experience is necessary.


Please ensure you have carefully read the makers terms and conditions before placing the order

We will start with a short overview of the various methods, approaches and possibilities of mosaic making before focusing on the techniques of the art including materials, cutting, adhesives and grouting. You will then work on your own mosaic, either using your own design or choosing from a selection of pre-prepared templates. Your mosaic will need time to dry so the class will include a grouting demonstration and you will take home a small bag of grout and instructions to finish the mosaic at home. What’s included: Tools and equipment, ceramic and vitreous glass tiles, bases, adhesives and course notes. What to bring: An apron or big shirt, design ideas and a shallow box to take your work home. Due to Covid, we will not be able to offer teas and coffees but please bring your own reusable mug and you are welcome to use the kettle. COVID-19: The number of students will be limited to four in order to ensure Covid-safe distancing, students will be required to wear visors and each student will have use of their own sanitised tools. In addition, there are hand sanitising points and a one-way system in the building. If you have any specific questions or concerns about Covid safety, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Helen Miles is a mosaic artist making bespoke mosaics for interior and exterior spaces. Helen trained in the art of mosaic making with master crafts people in Greece and makes finely executed pieces using a variety of materials from marble and stone to traditional Italian smalti, glass, unglazed ceramic and found objects. Each mosaic is designed and made according to the requirements of the client and to the place where the mosaic will be hung or installed. Mosaics bring interest and colour to a variety of settings, including floors, walls and gardens.

Helen creates her mosaics from her Edinburgh studio and can arrange shipping within the UK and overseas. If a larger mosaic is needed, then the mosaic can be cut into sections to facilitate the transport process and then assembled and grouted on site. Helen also specialises in making mosaics for special occasions, particularly for weddings.

The prices listed are approximate. If you are interested in commissioning a piece, please contact Helen to discuss your project and she will be happy to provide you with an estimate.

Shipping Policy

Each mosaic is made to order and packaging and shipping is handled by a reputable company with experience of handling art works. I will be able to get you an estimate of packaging and shipping costs once I know the size of the mosaic you are interested in, the materials and method which will be used and where it is being shipped to. The buyer assumes any shipping and insurance costs related to the work. Furthermore, the buyer accepts liability for losses incurred in transit or due to the delay of the shipper.

Refund Policy

I make bespoke mosaics to order and do not offer a refund policy. However, you will be consulted and involved in all stages of the mosaic making process so that the mosaic will be one that you are completely happy with.

Cancellation / Return / Exchange Policy

I require a non-refundable deposit before beginning work on a mosaic commission. Once all details of the mosaic are agree, I then require half of the remaining price for the work, with the other half payable on completion. In the event of cancellation of the commission due to reasons beyond the buyer’s control, I will invoice the buyer for the amount of work done and materials used up to the point of cancellation.
