Chorlton Mosaic Group

Weekly Mosaic Classes with Tracey Cartledge in Chorlton, South Manchester

A relaxed group that meets every week to make mosaics together and encourage and inspire each other. Supported by the guidance of local artist Tracey Cartledge, participants work at their own pace, picking up where they left off each session they attend. 

Beginners are shown how to use the tools and materials provided to make and grout a simple, direct method mosaic using ceramic and/or vitreous glass tesserae. Follow-on projects are then arranged on an individual basis with plenty of advice and technical help at hand, as required.

Tools provided include tile nippers, Leponitt cutters, safety specs, china markers and a tile cutter plus a basic range of mosaic materials – glass, ceramic & stone – for everybody to share. We always have adhesives and grout in a choice of colours available and all this is included in the price you pay to attend, together with tea & coffee. Members of the Chorlton Mosaic Group can purchase tools and materials from me at trade prices.
