Summer Evening  Courses

These classes were very successful pre-covid and are now back by popular request. Each evening class runs as a stand alone event during which I will teach you a specific technique.

Each of these classes runs as a single night, stand alone event. Students can book for just one event or any number of them. Over the course of a night we will start with a demonstration and then dive right in, adopting a follow along approach to develop the technique. Suitable for all abilities from those who are complete beginners right through to more experienced students, these classes are based around developing skills in the process rather than an end product.  Across the summer we will cover a varied range of techniques, as detailed below. Pre-covid, several of these technique nights ran at full capacity. Pre-booking is therefore essential.

If you have any questions or want to go ahead and book yourself onto a class, please contact me to discuss your needs.

After an initial demonstration and explanation, we will dive in and work on developing artwork in a specific technique through adopting a follow-along style for the first half of the day. As we progress, we can move on to use the technique on varying subjects during the day, suitable for different levels of experience.  At the end of each day I will review your work and give you feedback. 

All materials will be provided and the courses are run within a fun, yet professional, environment. The studio has ample parking and is conveniently located on the edge of Wexford town.

Mosaic Weekends

 

It's relaxing, it's addictive and you will learn all you need to know to create your own mosaic masterpiece in one weekend. Having worked in mosaic on a wide range of international projects over many years I can advise you on what's achievable and guide you along the steps to achieve it.

Wanting to try something new? Or perhaps you have an idea for a mosaic you would like to create? Over the course of one weekend I will guide you through all of the steps required to create a mosaic artwork you can be proud of displaying in your home or garden. You don't need any previous experience and I will provide all of the materials required for you to produce a small mosaic panel by the end of the weekend. Just bring your imagination!
