I hereby proclaim the month of March to be the “Make Something Beautiful Month!!!”
There is nothing like spring weather to inspire you to get out in nature, put out the patio furniture, plant a garden and make something beautiful.
I have been out in my back yard loving our Tucson, Arizona weather while I methodically glue mosaic tile down. It’s meditational. The hummingbirds come swooping by my head, the bees are in the flowering trees and I feel at peace for the moment and I love spring in the desert.
Last Saturday I held a Mosaic Workshop on the patio of Guiseppes Italian restaurant. It was such a successful experiment. All 10 women thoroughly enjoyed themselves while creating something beautiful. For most of them it was a first time and like always they are not sure what they got themselves into. But by the end of the class they were so proud of what they did.
As you can see by their smiles and creations it was a success.
March class is already filled.
The next Mosaic Workshop available will be May 1st.
And there are 3 more seats left for the Mosaic Table Workshop
Ceramic 3-dimensional Flower class
I will be offering a Ceramic 3-dimensional Flower class part 1, April 7, 8 and 21. That’s 2 Wednesdays, and 1Thursday, from 5:30-7:30.
Students will be learning how to create these two samples. The Mexican Bird of Paradise and the Saguaro Flower. Built to scale these charming additions can really make a project pop! They are stunning 3-D tiles to be used for mosaics and/ or for sculpture. Go Here for more info and to sign up.
Here is an example how I use them.
