I have nearly 20 years' experience of making mosaics with pupils of all ages. The mosaics can be for indoor walls, or outdoor walls or mosaic paving.
Design - This can be pretty much whatever you want. Usually I ask pupils and staff for ideas and images they’d like in the mosaic. I design the mosaic including as many of these as possible, so that the whole school is involved in the design process. I’ll agree the design with you, and then come into your school to make the mosaic with the children. Staff are also welcome to join in.
In school I use washable PVA glue to secure the mosaic pieces to a template. I take the mosaic away to finish it off and grout it, so that no potentially hazardous processes are done in school
Children will learn about design, colour and tone and how to use hand held tile cutters
I have full DBS certificates and Public Liability Insurance
