2011 mosaic update

Mosaic Addiction - it's good for you!
Our hearts go out to all people in Australia who have suffered in the floods and fires this month! It's been devasting for so many and we hope you find the strength to rebuild, refocus and recover emotionally.  The community at large has really been put to the test - hopefully you are benefitting from the huge flood of kindness, caring and generosity.

OzMosaics was not flooded and we are grateful to be operating as usual.   Our mosaic workshops kick off tomorrow and soon we hope to release our MOS-Oz  Mosaic Online School Australia with lots of interesting workshops, topics and mosaic-related activities. MOS-Oz will tie into Studio OzMosaics workshops and the benefit will be to students and lovers of mosaics, all round.  It's still in test mode but over coming months you will see it unfold.  Register at OzMosaics to receive newsletter updates.

OzMosaics will be very busy this year!  So many mosaic projects on the bench and workshops are popular as ever!  We will introduce new workshops soon  - the new workshops are being matched with online workshops so we have held them back for a bit longer - it will be worth the wait.  It's very exciting.

Hopefully you can attend a mosaic workshop or Mosaic Addicts Day at OzMosaics soon.

We have a promotion running at the moment till end of January 2011 on our gorgeous DYNASTY smalti.  OzMosaics are proud to stock this product and recommend it highly. Stock up whilst the discount and promotion is on this month or get some to try out.  20% off and 30% off for CLUB mOz members.

Dynasty smalti looks beautiful in a mosaic as a whole or part of your mixed media mosaic

The colours are vast and the smalti nips with Leponitt, Standard Tile Nipper, hammer and hardie or even a hammer. Go for it!

Sandy recommends Weldbond (indoor) or tinted thinset for the adhesive with a new glue option coming soon!!!!!

We hope you have a great year, take care and please comment or send emails or photos of mosaics to us to share.  We will be at the Bribie Island Art show again in 2011, the Wesley Art Show in November and hopefully at the Mosaic MAANZ symposium in Adelaide South Australia.

Find us on our Facebook page and enjoy the daily diverse updates!
Working together in mosaic harmony.

Take care and happy mosaic making.
