Young student mosaic beginner class

Young mosaic master in the making

I recently had the privilege of having some young future mosaic masters in the class. The girls had apparently been wanting to do a mosaic class for ages, and have been interested in mosaic for some time. They had a brilliant morning having cake and tea and doing their projects together.

Mosaic beginner class held at Casa Labia in Muizenberg

Mosaic beginner class students

I recently taught a relaxed mosaic beginner class at the brilliant venue, Casa Labia in Muizenberg. We were situated in the art gallery area upstairs in a big elegant room overlooking the bay.

The balcony doors were open and we enjoyed the lovely sea air whilst doing our class. Mid morning tea and scones were served with fresh filter coffee available all day. Students had a choice of 3 projects and we provided all the materials.

Please let me know if you are interested in doing this class. Stay up to date with what we are doing by signing up for our newsletter.

Africa’s greenest hotel mosaic mural installation

Mosaic artist, Jo de Freitas, completed her big mural commission for the Greenest Hotel in Africa, Hotel Verde. The installation took place at the hotel in Cape Town, South Africa. I promised installation photos, so here they are.

The artist first laid the final mosaic out in a church hall to ensure everything was in order, before transporting it to site.

A scaffold was erected on the wall to assist the artist in installing each piece safely and accurately. Ceramic and glass tiles were used exclusively for the whole mosaic.

The finished work is something to behold and really enhances the hotel’s exterior  facade.
