ABOUT THE ARTISAN
Inspired by the colours and designs of nature, Heather has slowly developed her own style of mosaic art. In a small dedicated area in her living room, Heather creates both small and large items for indoor and outdoor display. From renewed furniture to pieces designed for specific places, her art combines texture, design and colour to delight and amaze.
ABOUT THE HOUSE OF ARTISAN WORKSHOP
Here is an opportunity for you to make full use of Heather’s skills and knowledge and create your own personalised garden art panel. During the two days of mosaic activity, you will learn some of the finer skills of glass cutting to achieve curved lines using a mix of coloured glass, textured tiles and mirror.
Experiences will include:
* Learning to use an electric glass grinder.
* Use a diamond cutter to create movement in the final design.
* Creating an individualised art piece that suits your environment and personal preferences.
* Completing a 700x300cm panel, suitable for outdoor or garden display.
Join me for hands-on instruction and practice in making your own glass and mirror art. If you have ideas or can bring electronic pictures of what you might like to make, it is always helpful to have visual cues for inspiration. This will be a fun and down-to-earth session, where no question is too basic. You need to come with suitable footwear for safety reasons and if you wear eyeglasses for reading or close work, remember them too.
If you have items of special meaning to you; old costume jewellery or small tiles that you love, that you might wish to incorporate into your design piece, please feel free to bring these along too. This will be a wall mounted item that will not need to be a flat serviceable surface so your art can have texture and relief. You may wish to look at the garden art pieces on Heather’s website.
