Become captivated by the wonderful world of texture, light and colour that mosaics offers.
Even if you don't think you have an artistic bone in your body, discover your creative side through the art of mosaics.
Your creative journey will explore colour and composition as you are walked through a variety of mosaic techniques. Experiment with different mediums, tools, adhesives and grouting techniques. Learn how to prepare the substrate and the sculptural fabrication process.
Beginners will start with the basics and create two terracotta pots before progressing with greater knowledge to more advanced projects.
Classes are taught by award winning Maria (aka Mia) Kokkoris, who discovered the joy of creating mosaics approximately 17 years ago and has been addicted ever since.
Mia uses a combination of media, including ceramic, glass tiles, smalti, mirror, beads, pebbles, crockery and stained glass and she has a love of salvaging and recycling to make imaginative art. More recently her designs have incorporated fused glass, adding a deeper dimension to her work.
Mia is a member of the Mosaic Association of Australia & New Zealand (MAANZ), she has held several positions within the committee.
Mia has her own website which showcases her works of art.
