Mosaics – it all began when Clare dabbled in mosaics as a creativity to entertain her small children. Clare discovered that her children delighted in making their own individual and unique garden stepping stones, and from there a grand passion for mosaicing was unleashed. When her children were older, Clare enrolled in a mosaics workshop. From there, Clare began to make mosaics as gifts for friends and family, create paid commission pieces and ran workshops.
As Mosaicworks, Clare ran mosaic workshops in the Penrith, Blue Mountains & Hawkesbury areas. Clare has now integrated Mosaicworks with Coaching-I-Am.
Would you like to immerse yourself in a weekend in Mosaics?

Mandala means ‘circle’ and comes from the early Sanskrit language. Mandalas can be used for insight and healing as well as for meditation.

Here’s what people say about this workshop –
“I can thoroughly recommend Mosaicworks’ Mosaic Mandala Workshop, held at The Creative Fringe, Penrith. Our wonderful teacher Clare Lavender, provided excellent step by step instruction which was great for a first-timer like myself. All items were provided. All I needed to do was turn up and have a desire to learn something new and have fun. In addition to the class, I had found out about The Creative Fringe through doing the Mosaic Workshop and was very impressed by the size and setup of the space provided. Definitely worth considering, if you run a small business and need a space to run it from.” Marie Anderson
