Mo­saic work­shop will rock Dou­glas

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

EVER smashed a tile and re­alised it was pretty? Then head down to the Dou­glas Arts Base this Satur­day for a Mo­saic work­shop.

Tu­tor Sam Mathews spe­cialises in both glass and ce­ramic mo­saics and has even cov­ered a gui­tar in mo­saic.

“I’m self-taught, I started with the bath­room floor and went from there, I’m a land­scape gar­dener so it works in with my trade,” she said.

“A friend once said you’d mo­saic any­thing that sits still and was sur­prised I hadn’t mo­saiced the gui­tar and I thought wow, what a fan­tas­tic idea.

“The work­shop will teach how to do a ba­sic mo­saic. We’re go­ing to do some lit­tle flat projects to fit in, in three hours and I will grout it for them so they get some­thing out of the course.”

The three-hour course is from 1.30pm-4.30pm this Satur­day and costs around $25, in­clud­ing ma­te­ri­als. Num­bers are fill­ing fast so call DAB as soon as pos­si­ble on 4098 3337, or en­rol on­line www. dab­moss­
