Heart-centered creative workshops
for clarity, purpose, direction, meaning, self- expression,
self-acceptance, creativity, and goal setting.
Mosaics all began when I dabbled in mosaics as a creative way to entertain my small children. I discovered that my children delighted in making their own individual and unique garden stepping stones, and from there a grand passion for mosaicing was unleashed. When my children were older, I enrolled in a mosaics workshop. From there, I began to make mosaics as gifts for friends and family, create paid commission pieces, and start with workshops.
For more than 10 years, I have facilitated workshops for adults and children including mothers and sons, mothers and daughters, a daycare centre (kids 2-3 years old making tiles for the centre’s garden) an outreach programme for adults with disabilities and coached a student with her HSC project.
Workshop Feedback – here’s just a few testimonials –
“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
