Project Management/Mosaic Advice
It seems everyone loves mosaics, judging by the continual stream of phone enquiries for mosaic advice!
Due to the incredible amount of people contacting OzMosaics for advice on mosaic proposals, tenders, private mosaic projects or client commissions, OzMosaics can no longer provide free, professional mosaic advice over the phone.
As you can imagine it takes a lot of time and effort over the phone and there is the risk that information is misunderstood during a phone chat.
If you are seeking assistance with a mosaic commission, school project, community artwork, public artwork, tender etc for a major mosaic project which involves any of the follows or other mosaic advice, please book with Sandy Robertson for a private consultation regarding any of the following mosaic procedures:
Material selection, quantities and suitability
Pattern and enlargements
Working with schools
Working with children
Working with the aged
Artist in Residence
How to make light weight board
Health and Safety
Quantities and costing
Installation or mosaic methods
Shipping/transport for your project
Pricing your project
The mosaic mesh method
Tool and cutting techniques
Time management etc
Making Mosaic Torsos and sculptures
Private mosaic consultation with Sandy Robertson at OzMosaics studio is $110.00 per hour, minimum one hour, for those seeking advice for professional commissions. Please contact us to discuss this matter as obviously there are special circumstances that fall under our "art from the heart" program.
You may bring a list of questions, make samples or problem solve for your project - please contact Dave Roberson to book in a mosaic consultation.
We recommend you book into Workshop A to gain hands on experience of the mosaic mesh method and Sandy's tips and tricks and if necessary after completing the workshop, book in for a consultation for a special project etc. If you wish to gain more knowledge of 3-D, working with thinset, china, mixed media etc please book into Workshop B after completing workshop A.
Workshop A and Workshop B are busy one day workshop and no time is set aside for individual mosaic project consultations.
Sandy's students who have completed Workshop A and B, may book an hour consultation for their own mosaic artworks (not professional paid projects) at $50 per hour or perhaps attend the Mosaic Addict Tuesdays to share the fun of mosaics with other students and bring a project to work on or help on OzMosaics projects in the making etc.
Please contact Dave Robertson initially to discuss your requirements.
There is more to mosaic than meets the eye and if you are considering including mosaic in your next major commission, for the first time, you need to be sure you are on the right track regarding material suitability, mosaic installation and more.
You would not ask your dentist for a phone chat to learn how to crown a tooth. If you wish expert advice you need to set aside time, practise the procedures and pay for the information. You owe this to your future clients.
It is amazing how many phone calls we receive at OzMosaics stating "I think I will include some mosaic in my next major client project, please tell me what to do, what materials I need and how to cut the tiles, install the mosaic and grout....all over the phone!". Please book your mosaic workshop and start your mosaic journey! It is worth the investment of your time, energy and you will gain many mosaic skills to build on.
