Beauty / Make-up
I have been crafting since childhood and like to upcycle, experiment and test out different methods and visual mediums, as well as natural scents. I teach a range of family crafts, but my speciality is mosaics to advanced level, and environmental themes. I work in mixed media mosaics featuring recycled pottery, glass, stone, metal and porcelain. Mosaics can have the richness of jewels and natural elements, and be rich in texture, or funky. You can see some of my class pics and student gallery on **Removed By Admin**. I try to teach things that are a bit unique to other classes out there. I'm a qualified Tutor with Enhanced CRB certification. Please note that I have put my location as Brockholes **Removed By Admin** as I teach there regularily.
Over the years I have taught short mosaic and craft workshops as well as manage large mosaic art projects with communities such as schools, Scout groups, Woodcraft Folk, and other groups with special needs or interests, as well as festival events. Examples of short classes are mosaic pendant, mosaic bird box, glass garden mosaic, recycled mosaic wildlife plaque, mixed media steam mirror (at Hobbycraft May 23-4 2012). Other classes include making a felted 3d dragonfly, scented bath bombs, scented fruity and spicy wreaths, and batik. Examples of Community projects are indoor/outdoor mosaic murals, mosaic trails, memorials and other outdoor interpretive or sculptural installations.
What is most inspiring is that art has a way of making you feel better, like a good cup of tea. I find this the best part about teaching, and working with community groups like Woodcraft Folk and schools. Students tell me that I have an informatl approach to teaching that always seems to make them relaxed.
