Vicki's guide to creating magnificent mosaics
Community Engagement Manager (West) Vicki Gillow shows us how to use ceramic tiles and grout to make a mosaic.
Mosaics are a beautiful way to create a photo. Usually found adorning the ceilings of cathedrals with extraordinary details, but also in a simple pattern on a coaster or art displayed on the wall. With practice, you can create a beautiful mosaic all your own.
Community Engagement Manager, Vicki Gillow created these mosaic videos to help you with a pathway through to designing and making a mosaic for your home or garden. The three videos below will take you through each step, so you can use them as a guide when creating your own mosaic.
Take a simple design using inspiration from photographs, the garden, things around you, or from a painting you have done, and simplify your image into a mosaic design.
Begin creating your mosaic using the design drafted in step one.
Finally, finish your mosaic by grouting.
