Mosaic classes and courses
My mosaic classes and courses are designed to give insight into the beautiful landscapes of mosaic art. Allowing the process of making, strengthen creative ability in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. Each class/course is carefully constructed for beginners or more experienced makers, sharing step by step methodologies and techniques. These will enable you to produce a mosaic from your chosen design, created from a combination of high quality materials - stained glass, glass and ceramic tesserae or tile.
An introduction of lead as an outline can also bring enhanced structure and contouring to your artwork.
Dates to be arranged - prices may vary slightly due to location.
This day class will provide step by step instruction on how to create a mosaic from glass and ceramic. It is ‘a day starter class’, so the outcomes will be small but beautiful. You will learn all the processes and materials needed to make a mosaic at home. Mosaic size estimated 20x20cm

The artist in me
My works are about stories, visual description of a time, place and emotion encased as one. By using layers within my process, you will see the themes materialise as the contours and surfaces start to sensitively emerge. Giving way to the narrative, the history and journey of the pieces I create.
It is the blended industrial-natural landscapes of my hometown that continues to inspire and influence my choices in the materials that I use. Distinctively the use of metal or lead that I manipulate, creating contouring and multi layered dimensions.
My approach comes from a place of depth, compassion and mindfulness.
It’s this approach to my storytelling that I share in the workshops I run, the private and public commissions I take.
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.
