MOSAIC WORKSHOPS FOR ADULTS & COMMUNITY MOSAIC WORKSHOPS
I run mosaic workshops for adults and I am qualified to teach adult learners (City & Guilds PTTLS). Mosaic workshops can be arranged to explore the direct and indirect methods of making mosaics using a variety of materials or tailor made to suite a given project. I have worked with regional art societies, disadvantaged parent-child groups, cancer patients, mental health clients, learning difficulty clients, community groups and the general public.
As a qualified Community Artist (having trained with Artlink, Hull) I am available for consultation and facilitation of public community art projects. Projects include mosaic workshops and mosaic courses in schools, hospitals, museums, art centres, galleries, children's centres and community centres.
I hold a clear Disclosure & Baring Service Enhanced Certificate (formerly CRB check) available for inspection and have a certificate in Safeguarding Children (Level 1).

NEXT MOSAIC WORKSHOPS
Add a signature piece to your home or garden by learning how to design and create your own mosaics using the direct method. Select from a large choice of materials and be inspired by the artist’s own mosaics, books and resources. Future projects will also be suggested (including lamps, tables, floors, vases etc).
I am now taking bookings for my one day introductory mosaic workshops at my home studio in Huttons Ambo, near York, North Yorkshire (set in the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - and overlooking the stunning Yorkshire Wolds).

Create a mosaic plaque 22 cm x 22 cm (for indoor display) - Price £50 (including all materials, refreshments provided, please bring lunch).
Discover the materials and methods of making mosaics using the direct method while creating your own indoor mosaic. I will show examples of materials, explain the five steps of making a mosaic using the direct method and provide examples of my mosaics for illustration. Tips on suitable designs for mosaics and different mosaic styles will be discussed along with future possible projects. Books and resources, including websites, and sources of materials will be provided for reference.
I provide designs which you may use to create your mosaic or alternatively you may wish to bring along your own design to fit a 22 cm square base.
