Mosaic classes and courses

My mosaic workshops and courses are designed to allow artistic skills to emerge or strengthen in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. Each class is carefully constructed to suit beginners or/and the more experienced. I will show you step by step methods and processes to enable you to produce a mosaic from your chosen design. This may include a combination of glass and ceramic, or introduce lead as an outline to bring enhanced structure and contouring to your artwork. 

Dates to be arranged - prices may not include space hire if not stated.

The artist in me

Living in South Wales has provided me with great inspiration and I feel, in fascination with the industrial materials of my landscape. Although much of my art is practiced in the community, I also create works internationally and for private clients. 

My artwork is distinctive for its use of metal or lead that I manipulate, creating contouring and multi layered dimensions.  Although I have been teaching for many years and enjoy the interactive nature of skill sharing, it is only now that I begin to teach the ‘contoured mosaic technique' of making used within my art. 

 

 

Due to the current situation, organising personal activities  have become more difficult for us all.  If you can organise a small group and have a community centre around the corner, this could be ideal for running a day class or 2 day course. Travel and B&B costs might apply if I cannot commute there daily.  If you cover the additional costs, the 5th person in your group, may come free of charge.

 

All classes will run in accordance with current Government Guidance.

 

Most of my classes run from the Sustain Theatre, situated in the beautiful Wentwood Forest, a 25 minute drive from Newport and Chepstow. Postcode for its location NP15 1ND (look for Wentwood Timber
