workshop A mosaic trivet ozmosaicsReferral for the Workshop A - Beginners: Trivet - Direct & Mesh Method:
"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 are 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! "

workshop B ozmosaics advancedReferral for the Advanced Pique Assiette Workshop B: 3D China!
"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! "   
Thanks, Michelle for your feedback and attending OzMosaics workshops in October 2017.

From Judy S  "I recently attended my second mosaic class at Studio OzMosaics, Advanced Class mind you!  Never would I have thought that I would be doing anything advanced in the artistic area.  I had such fun and a sense of achievement from the Beginner's class, I put my name down.  What an absolute delight Sandy is.  Such a wonderful and passionate teacher, with a friendly disposition.
Happy to share her skills and techniques with all who attend.  The classes are small enough so that she is able to assist all students at different stages of their projects.  The day is well planned out as is the working area.  The instructions given are clear and easy to understand and the day is sprinkled with funny anecdotes to listen to as you nip away at your tiles. 
Everyone can do mosaics!! Even if you do not have an artistic bone in your body, you will leave with something you are happy with. Try it out.  You'll have a great day at the Beginner and Advanced workshops.   Looking forward to attending more workshops in 2018.  Judy S.  24/11/2017
Want skills to mosaic a tabletop?  Do you love texture, mixed media and 3D?   Traditional mosaics & smalti/mixed media appeal to you?  Whatever your mosaic taste, learn the skills and add your taste and personality to your mosaic creations.

Workshop A is all about A-Z of mosaics, creating a simple trivet but a full day of tips and tricks for the direct and mosaic mesh method.  You will take home a grouted mosaic. 
Want more?  Move on to Workshop B (shaping china and found objects into a stunning vase of mosaic flowers, embedding all with cement glue and no grouting!  A wonderful workshop learning to combine mixed media mosaic using thinset.

After completing workshop A & B, the Smalti Workshop may appeal to you.  Learn traditional and contemporary mosaic methods from mosaicist Sandy Robertson, including her hammer and hardie techniques.  OzMosaics sells the traditional hammer and hardie and stocks smalti (over 264 shades!) including gold.   

mosaic smaltiAlready into mosaics?  Mosaic artists will benefit from Sandy's workshops as Sandy has many tips/tricks built into her workshops. 
Students rave over Sandy's beginner and advanced workshop.  Many attendees to Sandy's workshops have had years of mosaic experience but are thrilled to learn Sandy's methods.  It's all about amazing tips and tricks devised by Sandy.
It is a pre-requisite at Studio OzMosaics that all students must complete the one-day beginner workshop before enrolling in any other OzMosaics workshop.  There are many of Sandy's unique tips and tricks built into the beginner workshop that continually surprises seasoned mosaic artists.    You will not be disappointed and you will be up to speed with Sandy's techniques for the mosaic on mesh method, the direct method, and mosaic secrets.  You need this info to move into Workshop B.

Following on you have the opportunity to enroll in the Advanced B workshop, smalti or week workshops!
Occasionally, Sandy runs a combo weekend A&B mosaic workshop - it's a great choice if you are impatient to get going and want to know how to mosaic in the direct, mesh and 3-D style.  A little taste of many mosaic methods,  in one project.  Contact Dave for more info for 2018 combo classes.

abrednaqYes, it looks easy at first, smash some tiles, glue them down and grout.  But, what about pre-sealing the base?  How do you select the correct glue to go in that birdbath!

What is the direct method, the mosaic on mesh method, indirect, 3-d, push-in and how you select a grout colour that will blend well with your mosaic materials?  Do you need the inspiration to make more than a flat table top?  Do you wish to decorate floating balls for your pool, garden pedestals;   perhaps a car?

For almost 20 years
, I have assisted thousands of students and we have a very strong student base, continually making mosaics!  
So whether you are a recreational artist or serious mosaicist, you will learn and grow at Studio OzMosaics.  Together we share and grow in our love of mosaics.
