Sandy Robertson now has new workshops uploaded!

It's been busier than ever the past few weeks! Since completing the Karalee State Primary School Mosaic Learning Seat, attending the opening day (fabulous!) I have been to Canberra, been out caravanning for a few days at Caboolture and then non-stop workshops at OzMosaics studio!

Wow, last weekend was wonderful - 5 ladies making mosaic murals over two days and the results were breathtaking. I never tired of the collective "sigh" as they cut their first cup and make beautiful mosaic flower blooms, or daisies and gerberas out of saucer edges!

The uplift is so perfect and this time we added a gorgeous window setting, with a striped wallpaper at the back and vases of flowers of course! The mirror curtains were simply waiting to be scored and cut out of mirror panes and the women certainly did a great job using the thinset, of various shades.

Thank you so much for a jam-packed, happy weekend at my studio.

On the website of OzMosaics, there is now an online enrolment/information form for easy communication with us! Try it out! I certainly learnt a lot with google forms and google docs!

I am now the President of MAANZ (Mosaic Assn of Australia & New Zealand) and have a great team of people around Australia and NZ on the State Committees. A Mosaic Symposium is planned for October 2009 and info will be available soon on the MAANZ website. Join MAANZ and become a life-member for $115.00! Hurry up and you can join in mosaic functions, mosaic exhibitions, read the on-line newsletters and join the mosaic MAANZ community.....all coming soon!

The Australia Zoo mosaic mural is under way re the design, I am working on it at the moment and will send it to Australia Zoo when I am happy with it, for their perusal. Once this is done, it's a case of fabricating it in the Studio. This should be an amazing piece of art!

Last night, I was guest speaker at the Brisbane Girls Grammar School, as Koala Conventions has a workshop there for 10 days and next year I will be running workshops in July (2009). Maureen and I had fun to a very "off the cuff" presentation and raised a few more dollars for Starlight kids Grant a Wish.

As usual, my 3-D picture of a vase of mosaic flowers, captured everyone's imagination.

I will be updating this blog more regularly now so please drop by soon!
