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, churches, 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).

If you would like to discuss a taught school session, mosaic workshop or community art project please send an email sue.kershaw@hotmail.co.uk or fill in the 'contact' form or call 07929 884759.
