Debra Pickering teaches art classes in a fun and supportive atmosphere. By teaching a limited number of students per class, she can focus on guiding her students to effectively learn a range of traditional mosaic techniques in the workshop.

The Mosaic Workshop costs $230 and includes all tiles, embellishments, glue, grout, sealer, tools, protective glasses, gloves and necessary materials, plus students can choose any base of their choice. A completed piece of artwork no larger than 30 cm x 30 cm is also included in the costs.

Available bases include a plaque (where you can mosaic your house number, a decorative flower, or a butterfly), a wooden food serving tray, a round terracotta serving tray, a rectangular terracotta plant pot, a larger square clay pot, a complete birdbath, and a fruit bowl.

Students are free to use the designs provided or they can bring one of their own.

Classes are either held “en plein air,” if the weather permits, or “in the funky art studio,” which features a beautiful tropical setting with relaxing music.
