Do you know in our 12 years of doing retreats, we have never had anyone, who couldn’t mosaic. People always say, ‘Im not creative or artistic’, well firstly, you don’t need to be artistic, and everyone is creative. It is a very relaxing and therapeutic pastime and the end result always astounds our guest of their capability.

Dan has many students that have gone on to make beautiful pieces at home.  You can learn how to mosaic for simple beautiful Christmas gifts and make a piece that will outshine anyone’s Christmas dining table.

You will learn how to cut, place, fix and design. We will help you to get inspirational ideas and post holiday, we will advise where you can obtain glass and equipment for your pre Christmas grand mosaic making project. Including that, you will have a superb and relaxing time, here at Tara Casa, where the September slot will still be perfect for swimming and relaxing on balmy nights, with friends by the pool and a glass of chilled wine, or some treat that you may enjoy.
