Mosaic courses and workshops for early 2018

Dates have now been set for mosaic courses and workshops for early 2018 at my home studio near York, North Yorkshire.

During the mosaic workshop, designed for beginners, you can explore how to create an indoor mosaic plaque using a wide variety of mosaic materials including, glass (vitreous and stained), ceramics, mirror, pebbles etc. I will show you how to cut the tiles and advise on design and layout. You may bring along your own design to work from or choose from a large choice of my designs and popular subjects.

The mosaic day starting at 10 am and finishing at 4 pm costs £50 and includes all materials and use of tools.

Dates include:

20 January 2018

17 February 2018

17 March 2018

The workshop has proven to be a popular Christmas present. Vouchers available.

School mosaic – St Anthony’s RC Primary School

Great week (last week) working with over 200 children at St Anthony’s RC Primary School in Beeston, Leeds.

This mosaic reflects the school values and colours and will hang in the new prayer garden.

The mosaic was created to link in with a themed week ‘We have more in Common’ in memory of Jo Cox.

A busy few mosaic weeks…

It’s been a busy few mosaic weeks, with the launch of the City of Culture Hull 2017 collaborative project with BAMM North. This installation of over 100 mosaic birds created in workshops with the local community and by artists now resides in Hull Paragon Interchange for one year.
