THE PEBBLE MOSAIC PRIMER
This film covers the same curriculum as the 2-day Basic Pebblework Courses held at Cobblestone
Designs Workshop for the last five years. Step-by-step, Maggy guides you through the technique for
making traditional-style pebblework. She demonstrates making a pebble mosaic in a box; which is a
handy way for beginners to start. She talks about which pebbles to use, the cement mixes, making a design,
& points out the little details to master, which make the work special.

THE PRECAST TECHNIQUE FOR MAKING PEBBLE MOSAICS
The “upside-down” method pioneered by Maggy Howarth for making pebble mosaic in moulds, which are then cast into the form of slabs with grout & concrete. Not for beginners! but here it is: the method used daily at Cobblestone Designs studio is explained in detail. The DVD covers the same ground & more as at the Advanced Precast Course at the Summer Schools. This method is the long-term solution for areas with freezing winter temperatures, for portability, & for achieving fine detail in the mosaics.
