Workshops

I run an inspirational Mosaic Workshop Programme from my studio, and an annual residential mosaic course in Italy. Workshops can be designed for small groups at the studio and for organisations. I have delivered workshops for the Craft Scotland ‘Meet Your Maker’ programme, National Museums Scotland and The Living Memory Association as well as for educational establishments, including Edinburgh College of Art, The University of Edinburgh, and Leith School of Art.

If you would like to discuss a mosaic workshop for your organisation or group please get in touch.

The first word that comes to mind is that the creative holiday was BRILLIANT. It was one of the best “art-related” holidays I have ever been on. To have two tutors who work so well together and both so good at it made a huge difference. This was highlighted when we saw the tutors’ representations of each other’s work. They were both really encouraging, valuing everyone’s creations and creating such a good learning atmosphere. I enjoyed seeing each day the tapestry jewels created as well as everyone’s mosaics.

One of the highlights for me was the trip to the modern mosaic gallery – I don’t think I had really thought about modern mosaics before and this was such a great insight into what is possible. The other highlight really is just being in Portico – such a lovely place to spend time and just be – I feel very lucky and privileged to have been part of the group and came home feeling inspired and with a spring in my step – I was challenged and for me that is a good thing – I feel it was very worthwhile and would consider doing another joint holiday again – I think tapestry and mosaic work well together. Such a lovely group too – I met new people and caught up with old friends too. I loved it – thank you to Jo and Laura for making it such a productive, creative and memorable week – you are both great teachers and bring out the best in your pupils and seem to help us realise what we can achieve!
