2014 is jam packed with mosaic adventures: workshops at the studio are constantly filled, trips to community art projects are always busy but fun and I have 3 huge mosaic commission in progress in 2014.
It's a busy but rewarding mosaic life.

Click on items in the menu to find out more.  I hope to meet you in a workshop one day.

Book into OzMosaics Smalti Australia workshops, Beginner workshops, Advanced and more!

OzMosaics loves Dyansty Smalti! - We have lots of stock - it's affordable, over 264 colours, with a mix of modern and antique shades!  The antique colour chart will have you rushing to make mosaic portraits.  The Dyansty smalti is based on mosaic shades of the Byzantine era.  Luminous, soft and perfect for skin tones or when you want a softness in your smalti glass.  Browse the stock in our online store or ring for an appointment at our Coorparoo Studio shop.

The modern smalti is strong and bold in colour and it is wonderful to mix up and create stunning mosaics.
Sandy will teach you how to  "spread your smalti further" and work your smalti glass into tinted thinsets and more.

Even if Byzantine style mosaics are not your mosaic cup of tea - learning the smalti traditional techniques will give you more depth in your contemporary mosaic design.  Imagine incredible mosaic eyes, delicate hibiscus blooms - come and get into shading and colour technique in mosaic mixed media.
Check info in the 2015 Workshop & Classes menu. 2014 was jam-packed with booked out classes all year.

Sandy's students are addicted to mosaics and the smalti classes have been wonderful!
Students have skills to create traditional mosaics, using andamento/opus techniques.
Create and make your own take on the Byzantine style of mosaic and add a contemporary twist.  The students created some fabulous mosaic "eyes" or little creatures and have taken the mosaics home to continue the mini masterpieces.

It's amazing - delving into the colour wheel helps bring out the beauty of colour blends in your mosaics.  Sandy covers this in the smalti class and you will learn how to break down your patterns into mosaic design/traditional style.

mosaic-mural-australiaWorkshops are filling as fast as we list them, which is wonderful and I look forward eagerly to every workshop; many are at OzMosaics Studio and quite a few will be "out and about".  Meeting people who love mosaics or who are eager to learn and create their own mosaic artworks is fantastic and together we all grow our love of mosaic art and craft.

Our mosaic web shop is so busy and Dave Robertson, Studio Manager and Customer Service Manager is always on top of the orders and gets them to our customers as quickly as possible.
