I really delight in passing on what I know about art and making mosaics to motivated adults hungry for information about this unique, historic medium. After 8 years of full time Fine Art University studies and nearly 30 years of full-time professional practice I am well qualified to teach what I know.
My studio workshops are designed to be an immersive experience; where technical and historic information, the savouring of a carefully assembled library and fine music are complemented by lovingly made gourmet tucker and local wines. I work hard to ensure that the whole weekend provides high quality learning with an utterly enjoyable social experience.
