A family affair, this one and again lots of enjoyment had by all.
Maddy chose a horse for her serving tray, Simone went with shades of green with her flower pot and Jon created a magnificent peacock which took a little longer than expected but not a problem as Jon took his grout with him to finish at home.
Well done guys, be proud of your masterpiece creations.....its hard to believe you've never made a mosaic before !

Easter 2011 Mosaic Classes....
Vino & Dush, first time mosaic artists, were surprised at how easy & how much fun it was making their own mosaic. 
Both were thrilled with their finished creations & I have a feeling they will be back for more.........
Ingrid, a budding young mosaic artist herself, came along to see if she could learn a few more tips from Leonie when she made her plant pot over the Easter break.....

Mosaic Classes
While living overseas, I found my classes to be very much in demand for both children and adults. 
The joy and excitement I brought to people's lives from such a simple thing, teaching my craft, gave me a great sense of achievement and inspired me to carry on with my business once returning to Queensland.
I have met many wonderful new friends through mosaic and I would like to share photos of their creations and their words that have inspired me.
