The Victorian and mosaic tiling course are perhaps the most aesthetically satisfying of all tiling courses, mainly because they are usually the focal point of a room or space; areas that are meant to be seen and admired. Soon after you’ve repaired or installed a new tiling work, you get to sit back and enjoy your professional handiwork.
Restoration of Victorian tile installations is a specialist skill and so is being able to install a new Victorian style tiling project. Mosaic tile installation is also a specialist style, but with an infinite number of decorative designs, finishes and styles.
While these two types of designs don’t necessarily go hand in hand, they do for the most part use the same techniques, tools and approach. Some training providers will offer only mosaic tiling while others offer both Victorian and mosaic tiling as part of a two-part programme.
Most learning providers will provide tools and materials but you will be required to wear suitable clothing and protective footwear (preferably steel toed), which is compulsory.
