Hi Tracey We received our first school project pack and having a lovely time! We are really impressed by your materials, organisation and attention to detail. I am just about to place an order for another4 Mosaic Stepping Stone Class Project (Garden Theme) to give you advanced warning!I have been asked a question about placing the stones so can you tell me if they are slippy to walk on when placed in the ground?Thanks for your help.Nicky Danks

Hi Nicky, Its so lovely to receive an e-mail like yours! Thank you very much for your generous comments and I’m delighted that you’ve found the kits so useful. With regard to slippage, this shouldn’t be a problem. The materials are exactly the ones that I have used in public pedestrian areas and have so far always been approved by local authority H & S officers. The area of mortar betweenthe ceramic tile pieces in the surface provides friction and so acts as a resist to slipping. The only other potential hazard to consider is tripping, if any pieces have not been properly tamped to create a flush finished surface. Looking forward to receiving your next order – thanks again. Kind regards, Tracey
Mosaic is a wonderful medium for any age group to enjoy but its tactile qualities have extra special appeal for youngsters. By including a creative, physical activity as part of a school topic you can bring the subject to life and make it extra memorable for everybody. This must be why so many teachers are asking for advice to deliver mosaic projects to their classes.
“I’d like my class to have a go at mosaic, where do I start? There are so many different grouts…what sort of tiles do we need…can you use glass tiles outside?”
Not all schools can afford to bring in a mosaic artist to help. That’s why I’ve devised these fabulous project packs for schools.
Each pack contains all the essential materials and instructions with extra tips based on my experience of working in schools for 20 years. The kits simplify the process to make sure that everybody has a great time – teacher included. Its bags of fun and very rewarding.
