Mosaic Workshops

“Each year I love to lead a small number of specialised mosaic workshops from my Castlemaine studio in gorgeous central Victoria. I draw from a deep well of practical and academic learning built over 30 years of full time independent arts practice and academic research. My courses are designed to lay solid foundations in mosaic for beginners, and to reaffirm classical mosaic techniques – together with introducing new ways of ‘thinking in mosaic’. So from complete beginners to those seeking a refresher course, for intermediate to advanced mosaic practitioners – there is something for everyone.” Dr Helen Bodycomb
