Kate -A perfect day and weekend

“I’ve just come back from a one day course in pebble mosaic at Olicana in Ilkley. I was a complete novice. What a lovely day, David is so informative and he and his wife helped us to produce our own mosaic to take home. Lovely relaxed atmosphere in their own workshop. I’ve always wanted to try this and I am so pleased with my mosaic. Ilkley is a wonderful town to visit, plenty of lovely coffee spots and shops and places to eat out in the evening. A perfect day and weekend. Thank you David and Caroline”

Pebble Mosaic Workshops

For many years I have run the popular one day pebble mosaic workshops from my working studio in central Ilkley.This workshop is unique in that it has been designed to fit comfortably into one day, covering the history and practicalities of mosaic, giving advice, as well as creating your own mosaic. People find the workshops not only informative, but relaxing, therapeutic, and good for their wellbeing. The workshops give me the opportunity to share the knowledge I have built up over many years on commission work and give people practical advice to help them with their specific projects, whether that is in pebble or other types of mosaic. Numbers are kept to a maximum of 4 people to make sure that everyone gets the best from the day, and my wife Caroline who is a designer and mosaicist provides support throughout the day. For full details and current availability, contact David by phone or email at:  mail@olicanamosaics.co.uk Tel: 07980 086266 Maximum number of 4 people per course. Minimum numbers apply. Gift vouchers are available. Covid secure working practices are in place.
