I started this week with a lot of energy, but full time and above working wore me down, so my current work in progress hasn’t progressed since the beginning of the week 🙁 And it won’t progress much over the weekend either as I’m working both days. But! I have Tuesday off and there will […]
I had a great day today. I held a paper mosaics workshop at Goodwood Library. Eleven eager artists attended and had a good time. I gave a quick rundown on tools and materials and let them have at it 😀 It was great fun to see the different interpretations and experimenting going on and I […]
This is an updated version of a previous exploration. I’ve updated it and reposted it here for today’s workshop participants and anyone else who might be interested.

So there are short periods of sun between the dank and grey and I’ve been trying to take full advantage of them.
Bit by little bit my jewel and paper mosaic is coming together. I have no plan and am really just putting pieces down where I feel like it and apart from one wonky swirl, I think it is going really well. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying doing this in my lounge in front of the TV.
