Always wanted to make mosaic? Come and join internationally known artist and teacher Marian Shapiro.
Marian has been working in mosaic since 2003 and has exhibited in many shows and has public and private commissions both nationally and internationally. She is a sought after teacher and speaker both in Australia and abroad.
These classes run for 7 weeks each term and are suitable for all levels including complete beginners.
If you’ve never made a mosaic before you can start off with a hanging piece or mirror to introduce as
an introduction to this ancient art although I’m happy to discuss other projects. You will learn about
materials, cutting, placing, adhesives and grout and the classes are supported by presentations and a
large library of mosaic books which are available for loan to students between classes. Classes are
capped at 10 people, so you get lots of individual attention. Anyone with mosaic experience or who
has attended one of my classes before and wishes to do their own thing supported by me is also
welcome. Have fun, learn a new skill and make a beautiful piece for your home or garden.
There is a $30 per term materials fee payable to me, which covers the use of tools plus all the
materials needed to make one mosaic project.
