2014 Workshops

Basic Beginners

This is a shorter, intensive version of my usual beginners’ course. Some homework may be required. All the basic elements will be covered to enable novices to make their first mosaic. This course will give you the building blocks to go on and make more advanced mosaics. Extensive take home notes and all materials included; it is recommended that you purchase your own tile nippers (available at the first class).

Dates: Thursday evenings,  16, 23 & 30 January 2014, plus a grouting class to be scheduled.

Times:  6 pm – 9 pm

Place:  Pepper Street Arts Centre, 558 Magill Road, Magill

Cost:  $155.00 (Materials included)

 

Mosaics on Mesh (Intermediate Level)

If you have never tried this method, putting mosaic onto fibreglass mesh is a great way to create a mosaic on a temporary substrate for transfer to a permanent location at a later date. It is a very useful technique to add to your repertoire. You will need to bring a simple design and your own tesserae (tiles) to use. 

Dates:  Saturday 8th February 2014

Times: 11 am – 5 pm

Place: Amethyst Moon Studio, 18 Turners Ave, Coromandel Valley

Cost:  $75.00 (Mesh & adhesives are included)

 

Cement Sculpture for Mosaics (intermediate Level)

Learn how to construct a wire armature and use cement to create a sculptural substrate for a mosaic that is both durable and suitable for outdoors. For those with previous experience in wire armature making, we will look at preparing a polystyrene base instead.

NB: we will not be doing any mosaic work in this class, just making the base.

Dates:  Saturdays, 5th & 12th April 2014

Times:  11 am – 5 pm

Place: Amethyst Moon Studio, 18 Turners Ave, Coromandel Valley

Cost:  $150.00 (All Materials Included)

 

Free-Form Mixed Media Mosaics (Advanced Level)

This course is aimed at those with a reasonable amount of mosaic experience.

If you find that you usually work with the same materials and in the same style most of the time, then this course is designed to take you beyond your comfortable creative boundaries and to get you exploring new ways of working. We will start with a PowerPoint presentation looking at other artists’ work and then give you some time to explore various materials. You will be able to start a small mosaic to finish later at home. Please bring your own substrate.

Dates: Saturday 3rd May 2014

Times: 11 am – 5 pm

Place: Amethyst Moon Studio, 18 Turners Ave, Coromandel Valley

Cost:  $125.00 (Fee includes a variety of materials, plus adhesives)

 

Mosaic Your Bird Bath (All Levels)

This class was popular last year so I am doing it again. Bird baths are a common choice for garden mosaic projects. Bring your own bird bath base along and learn about the trickier aspects of mosaicking a three-dimensional object. Tools and equipment, and some tiles provided.  Please email me for a list of suggestions for materials.

NB: the best options for bird baths are unpainted concrete or terracotta. Glazed ceramic is generally not suitable and requires pre-treatment before mosaicking. Please contact me for advice if you are unsure about what type of base material to choose.

Dates:  4 weeks, June 2014 (dates to be confirmed)

Times:  1.30 pm – 4.30 pm

Place:  Venue to be confirmed

Cost:   $175.00 (Some Materials Included)
