Summer Mosaic Courses

I have been running courses at Somerset Crafts for the past few months. This month students made a paving stone and a panel for outdoors.

The courses take place either in the polytunnel, outside or in the gallery. I start the courses by  discussing my work with students to offer an insight into some of the techniques and materials I use. I also come with an armful of mosaic books and we frequently look at other artist’s work for inspiration during the course.

In addition to my display of work in the gallery I also have (until Thursday 30th May) my solo show Voices of the Wind which is attracting a lot of interest and making a few sales.

I have Summer Mosaic Courses coming up at Somerset Crafts. For dates and details see my website

If you are thinking of coming down from afar, I can help you find accommodation. If you are wondering what it is like around here, think of rhynes, lakes, willows, egrets and cranes, ancient walks and Glastonbury Tor. The levels have small roads great for cycling and walking and of course bird-watching!

The gallery at Somerset Crafts is quite large and there are currently 19 of us who run it and show our work there. A lovely mixed bunch we are – from textile artists to blacksmiths.  There is a great little café on site too – “Eco-Friendly Bites” (I recommend the peanut butter cookies!)

I have added a couple of pages to my blog (see under mosaic classes) if you want to see what students have made whilst attending a course here.
