Teresa Mill's workshop is suitable for children and adults - come and have a play!

When does this workshop run?
 You can drop in and have a go at mosaic on Saturday 18 May from 10.00am to 5.30pm (we close at 6.00pm) and on Sunday 19 May from 2.00pm to 4.30pm (we close at 5.00pm). 

What you can do in this workshop? Cover a pre-cut wooden shape with 1cm mosaic tiles. You can chose from a heart, butterfly or elephant.  There will also be different options available in kit form to buy and take away if you catch the mosaic bug! 

Do I have to book?  No - just turn up. If the table is busy when you arrive just wait until a place becomes free.

Cost: £5 per shape

How long will it take? If you want to go for a random covering of mosaic tiles a shape can be completed in about half an hour - if you want to give a bit more thought to colour and placement of tiles then allow a bit more more time.  Why not try one of the other timed workshops that we have running too? 

To learn more about Teresa Mills and see some examples of her fabulous mosaic work do take a look at her page on the 'About Us' tab and read her 'Meet and Greet' blog entry.

In todays ‘Meet and Greet’ we would like to introduce you to our ‘Queen of Bling’ mosaic-maker – Teresa Mills.

Introduce yourself briefly  My names Teresa Mills and I am a mum of two teenage boys living in Maidenhead.  I went to Brighton Art College many moons ago and now work in mosaic.

Describe your style? My work is colourful and very bling!

Tell us about your workspace?  I am lucky to have a purpose built studio in my back garden

What inspires you? I take inspiration from jewellery, textiles, vintage ware and visits to Southall!

How and when did you get involved with Collective Art in Marlow?  I was delighted to be invited to take part in the Marlow Collective last year.

What is your favourite technique?  I love to use diamante and crystals in my pieces.  The more sparkle the better!

Apart from mosaic, do you have any other creative interests?  I am a fan of painting and drawing. I am in awe of the work of Jenny Saville and thought her exhibition this year in Oxford to be breathtaking. I also love to travel - especially with my family and if I wasn't so nervous of flying would love to journey around India. I have a suspicion that it would bankrupt me though!

Tell us where else we can see your work?  You can find my work at Emerald Gallery in Chalfont St Peter and Maidenheads pop up shop the 'Craft Coop'
