All Levels

Are you ready to learn something new? Have you always wanted to give mosaics a go? Classes are catered to beginning and intermediate students. My mission is to create a safe, communal space for all kinds of artists - beginners to professionals - to come together and express their creative sides. I believe in unlocking the creative within each and every one of us, and try to offer a wide range of classes for all students. Whether you’re a brand new student hoping to learn a thing or two about art, or if you’re simply interested in picking up a new hobby, I'm here to welcome you into the fold.
Read below to learn more about classes on offer and to find one that suits you, and be sure to read the FAQ!

 

TERM CLASSES

Term classes meet once a week for 7 weeks, mostly according to the school terms in the ACT.

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 completed. 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.

 PET MEMORIAL MOSAICS - NEW CLASS!

In this one day workshop, participants will learn to create a beautiful mosaic honouring their beloved pets, ones who have crossed the rainbow bridge or even ones that are still present in our lives.
We cut out a shaped substrate, and create a textured mosaic using a groutless method. Participants are encouraged to bring any material (eg: tags) to include in the mosaic. A clear image of your pet will need to be supplied prior to the workshop and a few words to describe your pet. The mosaic will measure roughly 30cm x 20cm.

Cost: $250

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.

 
Detail shot

Learn. Create. Inspire.

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

 

TEACHING STYLE

I started teaching in 2009 and work extremely hard to help cultivate the inner artist in all of my students and guests who sign up for my mosaic classes.


I offer a variety of workshops and classes, including Visiting Artists both from here in Australia and from overseas, in order to inspire and enhance everyone’s creative spark and spirit while giving you a strong technical foundation and good studio habits.
