My South London mosaic workshops round up…(and a note about garlic!)

Welcome to my regular round-up of work by my mosaic students!

As always, I am relishing the buzz of seeing people fall in love with the mosaic medium, getting totally absorbed in the process and feeling energized to create. Its such an honour to facilitate this.

Hard at work at the Artyard taster workshop

As is my style, I don’t expect beginners to just stick to the basics – so on my current courses (the 7 week Glittering Shards course, my weekly drop-in’s and the short taster course at The Artyard) people are doing some great experimental stuff – including glass stacking (totally spontaneous – how cool is that?!)

Here’s some pics of works in progress. Before you browse, I need to digress wildly.

If you read my recent post on making Busy Mama’s Garlic be aware that there are health reasons why you should not keep (home made) chopped garlic in oil for more than one week in the fridge (and a couple of hours at room temperature) as you can get serious food poisoning. So if you have been tempted to make your own stash of pre-chopped garlic in oil, read this! Thanks to Brigit from Maine for letting us know this (she is a garlic expert – how wonderful!)

The following mosaics are all beginners, works in progress so yet to be grouted. Enjoy the mosaic eye candy and Happy Thursday!

A bit of love to finish – Happy Valentines!

    Hey there, I've been following you since I first got into blogging as I love your pieces and what you post. I hope you don't mind but I have nominated you for a 'Thank the Academy' award – I think it's just a way of promoting other people's work, but stop by my blog some time to see it 🙂
