Based in: Yorkshire (covering the UK)

I provide taught mosaic school sessions in both primary and secondary education across Yorkshire & the UK.I have taught in a wide variety of schools including rural, urban, special needs, public, private, small and large. Projects have included individual mosaic mirrors and coasters to external and internal wall mosaics created by the whole school.

I have provided mosaic workshops in schools since 2008. Having successfully applied for Arts Council funding, I worked for two years with MIND (Hull & East Yorkshire) to create mosaics with disadvantaged children, promoting positive mental health through expressing creativity, aged 5-13 years old across schools, with children’s charities, children’s centres, youth centres and out of school activities.

Whilst teaching mosaics in schools I have sought to link the sessions to the national curriculum by exploring the history of mosaics – with particular reference to the Romans; maths – calculating the number of tiles required and cost to cover a given area; ICT – designing a mosaic on the PC and exploring other mosaic artists via the web; English – providing a written quiz; and, geography – asking the children to consider where they have seen mosaics across the world, for eg, holidays abroad.

I hold a clear enhanced CRB certificate   and certificate in Safeguarding Children (Level 1)available for inspection. I have Public Liability insurance. I am a professional member of BAMM (British Association of Modern Mosaics).

If you would like to create a school mosaic you might like to consider:
- size
- location (internal or external)
- theme
- whole school activity or specific years
- number of children
- dates for delivery/completion
- budget
