Join Royal Jubilee glass mosaic making workshops in Highbridge

A series of glass mosaic making workshops with a Royal Jubilee theme are to be held in Highbridge over the next few weeks.

Sedgemoor Community Partnership is running the workshops, led by an experienced tutor, in Morland Hall with support of the Town Council and Somerset Skills and Learning.

"On this short course you will be supported in the designing and making of your own Mosaic Art Creation based on the Queens Diamond Jubilee Logo, which will form a part of a joint collaboration project," organiser Richard Matthews told

"These workshops aim to provide a fun and exciting introduction to planning and making your very own mosaic. The course will provide you with the basics of how to create your own mosaic under the guidance of an experienced tutor. The main aim is to have fun and create some thing colourful and attractive to be shared and admired."

The workshops will be held each Tuesday from 13th March (10.30am-12.30pm) until Tuesday 17th April 2012 with a break for Easter.

Angie Dibble, who has specialised in stained glass work for 12 years, will lead the training. She also teaches the subject regularly at adult classes in Somerset.
