Student comments:

Beginner Class:   "When I attended OzMosaic Beginners course I knew not one thing about mosaics.  Boy did that change quickly!  Sandy is absolutely bursting with knowledge, enthusiasm, experience, techniques, tips, tricks and great mosaicing stories.  The workshop had a lovely welcoming and personable atmosphere and her passion for mosaicing is just so contagious.  By the end of the day I felt so motivated and confident to start my own mosaicing journey.  An absolutely fantastic day and so worthwhile for anyone who wants to try this fun craft! "    Michelle.

Advanced Course:    Wow!  Talk about value for money!  Our day was jam packed with even more information, techniques and hands on fun!  And the nicest part is that I took home a unique 3D mosaic that was my personal creation, yet made with the help of Sandy’s expert knowledge.  Not sure if the best part was smashing wine bottles, cutting glass, oozing grout, or just the great company!  I’d definitely recommend this course to challenge those further who have already done the Beginners Course.  Fantastic!".   Michelle

Opening Night @ The Wesley Hospital for Liz & Friends Art Show 2011

Opening Night! 2011

Liz & Friends - Art Show 2011 at The Wesley Hospital.
Liz & Friends - a group of artists who help Liz Heber raise funds for The Wesley Hospital, Palliative Care Unit!
After the successful inaugral Liz & Friends Art Show at The Wesley Hospital in 2010, an enthusiastic group of artists once again presented their art for sale to help with the fundraising efforts!

The staff, volunteers and visitors to the Art Show helped make this event a huge success.  Many new friendships were forged and thanks to everyone who purchased artworks at this very special event!

OzMosaics put together a mosaic marathon running from the Wednesday art show opening until close at lunch time on the Saturday.  Many people helped make the mosaic mural and we visited the patients, who glued down tiles to the mosaic made on fibreglass mesh. 

The Opening Night Cocktail Party was wonderful and the auction was in full swing, plus great raffle prizes!  Liz Heber, generous as usual, donated one of her magnificent artworks for the auction and someone received a fantastic work of art!

OzMosaics donated a mosaic table, which will be used to raise funds for the Palliative Care Unit and a mosaic workshop in the raffle.  Sandy Robertson and her merry group of mosaic addicts, who meet at OzMosaics, most Tuesdays, helped make mosaic Christmas Decorations which were so popular!  Lots of mosaic Christmas trees, Christmas Candles, Christmas Angels etc were tied to the Christmas Tree and sold so well!  Thanks to Sandy's helpers!

Enjoy the slide shows and we hope you appreciate the love and care that has been glued down into this mosaic mural.
We welcome your feedback/comments below, thank you.

Helping Hands - Can you find your hands?

Helping hands on heARTs!

This is true art from the HeART! So many art show visitors, volunteers, artists, friends, patients and staff helped to make the mosaic mural. Every piece is special and we thank you all so much.

Helping Hands!
As you can see in the slide show, so many people helped take pART in this mosaic mural.

Thanks to the visitors to the Liz & Friends Art Show, who donated and tossed coins (and much more!) into the Santa Mosaic Sleigh and helped make the mural special in so many ways!

Thanks to the children, the parents, friends, artists, volunteers, patients, staff, doctors and nurses - so many people enjoyed helping to make the mural.  Many friendships were formed and many stories touched our hearts forever.

Many gave of their time and lots of hugs were given.   We hope you can "spot your hand".  If we missed you out, we did out best to photograph as many as possible, just know you are special and you took time out to help such a wonderful cause and make such a lovely art work.

We have a list of many of the mosaic mural helpers and if we don't have your name on the Mural Makers List, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will add your details.  We could not keep up at times, there were so many keen pARTicipants!

We thank you from the bottom of our heARTS!

Thanks to my team of mosaic addicts, who are helping to complete the mural at OzMosaics Brisbane Studio. We will fill in the missing pARTS, mount the mesh mosaics on a suitable substrate and show the mural in the making, in due course.

ExpectOzMosaics usual special mosaic effects, with butterflies almost flitting off the mural, gorgeous little insects and mosaic creates, upraised sections and wonderful grouting effects.  Keep checking this menu or join our free mailing list for updates on the mural progress.  Thank you.

If you have a story to share about the mosaic mural or the Art show, please send the info and we will include it on this website.
Thank you to Laticrete Australia for contributing, once again, to this Community Art from the HeART mural.
