Come to Chorlton Precinct Mini Christmas Craft Market Next Week!!!

Come and say hello, have a look at some of the lovely mosaics that have been made in my courses and classes and pick up some unique and delightful Hand-made Christmas gifts……….

Conveniently located in Chorlton shopping precinct, the Arts Festival Hub shop is hosting a mini Christmas Craft Market for 12 days leading up to Christmas…………every day there will different local makers selling their wares. I’m there on Tuesday and Wednesday – 13th & 14th DECEMBER – and it would be great to see some friendly faces and have a chat. I’ll have details of upcoming mosaic courses for 2012, items to see and bits and pieces on sale, including kits – of course!!

The Hub opens at 9.30am each morning and closes at 5.30pm each evening.


Balls to Christmas – with Mosaic On!!

I know my title’s a bit naughty but it got your attention, didn’t it?

What d’you think?


We’ve been making mosaic baubles at class – quite fiddly but it will be good to see it on the Christmas tree and know its all your own work! Not sure about the white grout – I generally avoid white but thought it would be the best colour for this project. Now I can’t help thinking it might look better with black……..what do you think?

The Wise and The Prickly

Children from St. Helen’s joined me for a mosaic workshop in the recent October half term to design stepping stones that will form a trail up to the amazing Dream sculpture at Sutton Manor.

The mosaic designs reflect and celebrate local wildlife, including the owl and the hedgehog, and the area’s mining heritage.

Following this, we’ve just finished making a wonderful set of  ‘STORY-TELLING’ Mosaic Stepping Stones for a path between two playgrounds at Chorlton C of E Primary…..more on that very soon!!
