Mosaic commissions – Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council

Roundhouse mosaic Sue Kershaw

Roundhouse – Athersley North Primary
In the 18th century, a gatehouse was built at the entrance to a Manor Farm, on what is now the A61 road. This round structure remained there throughout the building of the estates of New Lodge and Athersley. It was located at the junction of the A61 Wakefield Road and Laithes Lane but was demolished in the early 1960’s. This junction, around which the local commercial and shopping centre was built, became known locally as the “Roundhouse”.

Mosaics with Sue Kershaw – commissions and workshops

It’s been a really busy period creating a series of five mosaics for Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, working with five primary schools in the Athersley area. The mosaics will be installed in the street as part of a large regeneration project.

I have also been creating a large wall mosaic for Fairlawns Hotel and Spa in Walsall near Birmingham – photos to follow soon – grout currently drying!

Workshops have included a 21st birthday party, large corporate away day for North Yorkshire Building Control and Planning, and regular Saturday workshops in Huttons Ambo near York.

It was an incredibly varied mosaic workshop on Saturday with outdoor bowls, spheres, house numbers and plaques created using both the direct and indirect method. One mosaic also created personal keepsakes making a truly original mosaic.

And the greatest delight was to have four generations from one family creating mosaics together.

If you would like to learn how to create a mosaic here are some dates for 2020 in Huttons Ambo, Near York, North Yorkshire. .
