Art work­shops shat­ter mould

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY -

EVEN though Jan Faulks has been cre­at­ing mo­saics for al­most a decade, she still came away with some­thing new from Satur­day’s Mo­saic Cre­ations Work­shops.

“This is re­ally fine and beau­ti­ful and I’m hav­ing a lovely time,” she said.

“I’ve learned a whole lot of things that I didn’t know.”

Ms Faulks wasn’t the only one to ben­e­fit with many who at­tended the work­shop at Can­non­vale Li­brary ex­press- ing their grat­i­tude to Mo­saic Cre­ations Work­shops co-or­di­na­tor Pam Fin­lay.

“This mo­saic course was fab­u­lous. Pam was a fan­tas­tic tu­tor. (It’s) Great to see some­thing like this funded in Air­lie Beach,” said one par­tic­i­pant.

“More work­shops with Pam needed,” said an­other.

Ms Fin­lay, who has been an art teacher since 1996, said she loved host­ing the work­shop and looked for­ward to Fri­day and Satur­day’s RADF- funded work­shops in Proser­pine.

“Ex­press­ing your­self freely, that’s what I like about it,” she said.

“You can break up pieces of tiles and you can put them back to­gether and they all join to­gether to make a pat­tern.”

While Fri­day and Satur­day’s work­shops in Proser­pine are fully booked, peo­ple can join the wait­ing list by phon­ing 4945 0275.
