Travelling to Teach in 2018

I am currently arranging to teach workshops outside of NSW in 2018. Queensland in May and Adelaide in June and hope to be adding more Australian dates. Watch this space.

I have a booklet available of available course offerings.  If you would like me to come and teach for you, either in Australia and abroad, please contact me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Book me for a Workshop or Presentation
I have extensive teaching and speaking experience and am happy to travel. In the last year or so I have taught workshops in the USA, Canada, UK, New Zealand, Perth, Canberra and Sydney and had several speaking engagements.  If you are interested in hosting a workshop, please contact me.  A booklet of course outlines in electronic form is available on request.
 Presentations or workshops on working with smalti are available in conjunction with Smalti Australia.
I am now living in the Lower Blue Mountains and I am happy to provide 1 to 1 or 1 to 2 customised mosaic sessions in my home studio for people either with some mosaic experience, or for experienced artists in other media who wish to explore mosaics.  If you are interested, contact me.
