DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND the Forest Heritage Centre is excited to have Nathan Hopkins from Amazing Mosaics run a workshop for us again!
Amazing Mosaics is a unique Western Australian company owned and operated by artist, Nathan Hopkins. Originally from Busselton in the South West, Nathan's artistic talent was evident from a young age. Steadily maturing as an artist ever since, Nathan is now a practised master of drawing, painting and sculpture, and has emerged from his experiences as WA's premier Mosaic Tiling Artist.
Nathan's ability to create life-like mosaic tile scenes is truly amazing. His special smash-tile technique and creative flare results in eye-perfect 3D features that will continue to spark conversation and enhance your surroundings year after year. His talent in the field of art extends to mosaic art pieces, landscaping enhancements including entry statements and his talents at creating beautiful paintings.
In this workshop, each student is to bring along an object of their choice eg. vase, bar stool, side table, garden pot, anything at all! to mosaic. Tiles will be supplied for a 30cm x 30cm piece, any additional tiles will need to be supplied by the student.
Students need to bring along a flat edged tile nipper/clipper, available from Bunning's etc, Nathan advised he will have a few spares if required but he recommends purchasing your own because they come in different sizes to suit different hand size etc
The students will learn the skills of mosaic, gain confidence and knowledge in the craft of mosaic. Nathan guarantee's all students will have fun and satisfaction from their work.
