Product Details

Featuring hand painted ceramic tiles by Anne Cardwell - a bright colourful, attractive mosaic. Completely unique - you can't buy this anywhere else! It is a perfect introduction to this ancient yet contemporary art and it could also be a lovely gift for a creative friend.

A stylish project to make at home, everything you need, (except nippers, which can be purchased separately), is provided in the kit. It is optional whether to buy the kit, the online course, or both. Basic free instruction is always included. For beginners upgrade to the full course.

Choose your design.

  • Green & orange bird (with orange border and orange, yellow and cream tiles)
  • Bluey green & red bird (with cream border with green, cream and red tiles).

    Note due to Brexit hold ups of the background tiles from the EU, there may be colour substitutions.

Select from the menu and add to the basket as required.

KIT - The kit comes with a free online instruction sheet, available to download, an access code is emailed. Some knowledge of the mosaic making processes are assumed.

LESSON - If you are new to mosaic art it is recommended to take the full course (about 1/2 an hour of tuition in easily digestible steps). General tips and techniques are shown for tile cutting, laying and sticking, to grouting your finished piece. It includes a video of the entire making process from beginning to end, including a full demo of the grouting process. It is presented by Anne Cardwell, author of Stylish Mosaics and mosaic art teacher since 2002. A access code for this will be sent by email when you purchase the LESSON in addition to your kit. The lesson is designed to be taken with the kit - however it can be purchased separately as useful introduction to mosaic art, even if you do not buy and make up the kit.

NIPPERS Opt for nippers with your purchase.

ZOOM consultancy - to talk about future projects - to help your next ideas become reality.

ADD ON an extra design. If you wish you can order another board and set of materials, please discuss options by email or simply add 'any extra design' to the dialogue box at check out. anne.cardwell@iclould.com. Only available if you have already purchased the mosaic kit. This will contain a board, border tiles, ceramic piece, and background tiles. Enough adhesive and grout will also be provided.

  • Instruction link
Important note. please do not let let children handle grout and for everyone, always follow health and safety regarding use of this product, which are published with the instructions).


Not included A pair nippers is not included and they are essential. Leponitt glass mosaic nippers (£30-£35) are my recommended brand - they cut ceramic as well as glass. Cheaper alternative brands are Vitrex and Fitools, (£22 approx) are fine too. For your convenience one of these brands is available, but they are widely available to order in the usual places, mosaic websites, Amazon, Ebay etc.

Zoom consultancy is available at £25 per hour for help, mentoring or ideas for other projects. (Can be added at anytime).

SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES with supervision. (I would recommend secondary school age upwards.)

Suitable for placing indoors only. (If you use a waterproof base, eg tile, metal, plastic, glass, slate - the ceramic pieces and tiles are completely waterproof and frost resistant).

Bespoke designs can be created - using any of dogs, cats, birds, fish owls etc, please email. anne.cardwell@iclould.com

The ceramics are hand painted and fired, therefore may vary a little from the illustration. (Only in a good way!)
