COVID-19 Policy

I am taking advice from ACT Health directives. Hand sanitiser is available outside the studio - please feel free to use it as necessary. Check in is no longer required but my QR code is still available if you'd like to check in. Masks are no longer mandatory while inside the studio, but highly recommended as we are working inside and are not able to socially distance. Please stay home if unwell.

TERM CLASSES

Term classes meet once a week for 6 weeks.

This class will be suitable for all levels. Beginning students will create a stepping stone or wall hanging/trivet to get started. You will learn everything I cover in the Beginning Mosaics class and can choose to make either a ceramic or glass mosaic or if you have time, both. We all work at different paces and the tempo of the class is set by each individual.

If you already have mosaic experience or are an existing student wishing to work on your own project with support & tuition from me, this class is also great for you.

BEGINNING MOSAICS

This two day intensive workshop is an introduction to ceramic tile mosaics and an excellent starting point for those who want to study mosaics further or for those who just want to experiment with the medium. The workshop covers everything you need to know to create a mosaic that will last: safety, tools and their use, types of materials, substrates and adhesives suitable for both interior and exterior mosaics, setting tile, mosaic design basics, basic terminology and finally resources.

Grouting is covered on the second day. Students receive handouts with information covered in class and will make a 30cm sq stepping stone suitable for outdoor purposes to take home. No art or mosaic experience necessary! Please bring lunch.

OPEN STUDIO

Open Studio is an opportunity for existing students to continue their practice in my studio. My intention with opening up my studio is to foster creativity and encourage experimentation, for participants to feel comfortable and encouraged to try new things, take risks, make mistakes and to explore new ways independently.

It is expected that participants will have some experience and be comfortable to work independently as there is no tuition provided.

If you are looking to build on from my beginner classes and have a clear idea of what you wish to focus on, but nowhere to create, then this is a perfect environment for you.

The studio fee includes the use of the space and tools per 3-hour session and projects can be stored until your last session. You can bring your own materials or purchase from me.

Come to one session or as many as you like!

Discounts apply for purchase of all 6 sessions upfront via the All Access Pass

PRIVATE GROUP PACKAGES

Looking for a team bonding exercise, a Hen's Party idea or something similar? I can customise workshops with a specific project in mind. These private workshops are capped at 6 participants. Projects are usually group oriented such as a lantern, birdbath, single wall panel etc.
I am also offering private one on one sessions for individuals or small family groups to create a memorial mosaic to remember and honour someone you have lost.

Learn. Create. Inspire.

We all have an inner urge to create things with our hands, mind and soul. Time to reignite that spark!
