£95 including all materials

Glass Lab Edinburgh, 17 North Leith Sands, Leith, Edinburgh, EH6 4ER.

Join Joanna Kessel of Edinburgh Mosaic Studio for a fun, creative day making colourful mosaic tea-light holders inspired by Dalle de Verre architectural glass. Come on your own or with a friend to enjoy a sociable day making tea-lights as a ‘thank-you’ or festive present for friends and loved ones – the gift of a handmade glowing ‘ray of light’ may be more pertinent than ever this year!

You will be guided through this simple but highly effective technique in step-by-step stages. Each participant will be provided with 3 glass holders and a range of transparent mosaic and stained glass to create your unique mosaic tea-lights. Additional glass holders and materials will be available to buy from stocks should you wish.

*The adhesive needs to set before the glass is grouted. Students will have the option to return at 5pm on Sunday to grout the tea-lights or watch a grouting demonstration and take materials away to finish your pieces at home. (Grouting 3 tea-lights will take less than an hour).

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those with mosaic experience.

Venue: This autumn I will be teaming up with Jeff Zimmer and David Mola of Glass Lab Edinburgh who will be hosting my workshops at their newly opened premises in Leith. We are excited by the possibility of exploring the many interesting connections between stained glass and mosaic. These autumn workshops will kick-start that creative dialogue and we hope that you will wish to join us on this creative journey. www.glasslabedinburgh.com


COVID-19: We are closely monitoring Scottish Government guidelines to ensure the safe provision of the workshop programme, including limiting class sizes, and carrying out extensive risk assessments.

The mosaic workshops are designed for 8 students, however due to current social distancing restrictions places are limited to 5 participants to facilitate this. Should regulations alter we will advise students of any changes prior to the workshop running. We will also advise students of H&S procedures for attending a workshop.  Please get in touch if you have any specific questions or concerns – we’re here to listen.

Refreshments: Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided. There are a number of cafes nearby (including The Haven, Milk at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and The Shore) however students are welcome to bring lunch to eat at the studio.

Glass Lab is based at North Leith Sands. Parking is limited at the studio but there is plenty at nearby Ocean Terminal.​
