with Mosaic Artist Suzanne McGauley

Introduction

Mosaics have fascinated people for centuries. Intricate designs created from many tiny gleaming pieces immedialely capture the eye and give the viewer a dual pleasure - the image itself and the beauty of its constituent parts. Mosaics are both a functional form and a decorative art, making them endlessly versatile and appealing.
When you begin to design and make your own mosaics, the pleasure of creating something out of something else is an intriguing process and quickly becomes addictive.

The craft of mosaic making is easy to start to learn, but can be taken to any level you want.

Suzanne McGauley will teach you how to make functional mosaic art objects for the garden and home. Mosaic advice, hints, do's and dont's. How to make original and long-lasting Mosaic stepping stones, platters, garden pot planters and more.
