A variety of classes and workshops are offered at DVSA – please see current class descriptions.
At my home studio:
Workshops are held in west Hamilton. In situ samples are presented as we walk through my personal gallery.
These creative sessions are fantastic for the complete beginner to an experienced artist (you do not have to pre-plan a design before attending). Students have an eclectic range of beautiful tactile materials to play with and all tools are supplied. The results are stunning – you will love the shimmer of mosaic, unique compositions and the play of surface materials that draw the viewer in.
Maximum 6 students (minimum of 3).

Day 1 (e.g. Sat) 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. + Day 2 (e.g. Sun) 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. = (10 hrs)
