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.
‘Helen's workshops are such a pleasure to be a part of, I have learnt so much about different tools, techniques and methods. She has a very rich knowledge of mosaic and a marvellous ability to share that knowledge with others.’ KYRA SMITH
‘I have been studying mosaic with Helen Bodycomb for the past twelve years, attending two of her workshops per year, on average. I keep coming back to learn from Helen because of her excellence as a practising mosaicist, a scholar and a teacher. Every workshop is an adventure, allowing her students to explore a wide range of materials, techniques and styles, informed by Helen’s knowledge of the history of mosaic but not constrained by it.’ MARG GAITA
