You will be able to choose an ornament (focal) point and design your mosaic around that.

Cost of workshop  $60.00, with early sign up can save $10.00 this week. (Offer ends Wednesday, Aug 15) But price goes up to $70.00 after next Wednesday.  Price includes instruction, base supplies of an 8 or 10″ frame, backing, glue, grout, wire and water.

All tile and ornaments will be priced separately.  You may bring your special collected pieces to add into your project as well but you will be expected to purchase handmade tile for your design.  Robin has various designs and various prices.

Class will be held Saturday, August 25th, (August class is filled) September 22 and October 6 from 10-1 p.m. at The Blue Raven Art School, 720 E Prince Rd.  The corner of 1st and Prince.

October class will be a Day of the Dead theme.  But I will have other center pieces in case DOD is not your thang.

So, I think it’s going to be amazing and a lot of fun.

The class is limited to a small group. Accepting up to 6 people per class. You may pre-select your center piece and purchase Here.    You may view what’s available upon request.  Not all tile is posted in my shop but Robin will be happy to send you pics once you are signed up.

I have been doodling, coloring, drawing, cutting, sculpting, painting, sewing, writing and everything in between since I could hold a crayon in my hand. My first art projects were filling up a big, fat coloring book of bridal dresses. I boldly ventured into new territory with paint-by-number sets. I graduated to luxurious and decadent velvet (paint-by-number) sets. Eventually, I mastered the art of Spirogragh. Originally from upstate New York I have lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1986. Back then I was a single mom and found myself in the job market. I went to Pima Community College for training. Instead of diving into my academics I kept hanging around the pottery studio. Some people lived there and if I didn’t have two little girls at home I would have ended up living there as well. Joking aside, I fell in love with clay and all its possibilities. Being in a position to care for my kids, in 1989 I created a very marketable, creative, and functional item. It was a simple concept that took me into new heights of the craft world and I became an entrepreneur. Creating and selling became my passion. I had achieved success for many years. I loved being my own boss and living the artist’s dream. Life moved real fast and before I knew it my girls were all grown up, moving out, getting married and having kids of there own. Hey, wait a minute… I am a Gramma at 40? No sweat, I handled it gracefully. Fast forward to the present: I have been on a journey led by God. I took a sabbatical for the last 6 years learning new people skills in real estate, retail and care giving to the elderly. But my natural instincts kept leading me back to what my soul cannot deny. New visions, new risks, and a stronger faith has lead me to this point. Have I arrived? It’s like my life is all mapped out and a red arrow points to You Are Here! But the road keeps going and I have learned to listen to that still small voice. My days are filled with a little bit of art, a little bit of caring for my grandchildren, care giving to the elderly and volunteering at Sunday school. I am currently working on sculpting with clay in a tile mosaic setting, like my Seed Pod series or House of Fruit Trios. Some of my pieces are a mixture of individual 3-D tiles, shadow box shrines, and ornaments. The work that’s being created is inspirational, whimsical, and contemporary. Even though life can be very serious and intense I hope to achieve simply bringing joy or even a smile to someone’s face though my creations. I am also designing and developing my%2
