Mosaic Fun at Emerald!!!

This Friday, we had the pleasure of hosting a ‘make and take’ Mosaic workshop, by Teresa Mills.

As part of Bucks open Studios, Teresa was at the Emerald gallery space all day and bought along heaps of mosaic kits, shapes, tiles and sparkles.

With a wide range of people taking part, from retired ladies to our youngest mosaic artist of the day ( aged two !), everybody seemed to have great fun and created some mosaic masterpieces to take home!

Using pre-made templates, it was great and accessible fun for all to get creative and make beautiful mosaic's. Watch this space, as we hope that Teresa will return for more workshops in the future.

In the interim, you can of course by Teresa's stunning mosaics, such a 'love' pictured above from the Emerald gallery, as well as some larger and smaller pieces including her fabulous Mosaic kit brooches and badges to take away and make at home.

Bucks Open Studios has began!!!!

First Day of Bucks Open Studios- Ruby's ceramics

So, the first day of Bucks Open Studios went very well, with lots of new little pots in the world that didn't exist before Ruby spent the day in the gallery with her wheel.

(Everybody who threw a pot, Ruby will fire them and return them to the Gallery for collection in a couple of weeks :) )

If you missed it, Ruby is back for a further two full days (10 TIL 6), to let you visit and have a chance to try your hand at pottery- she at the gallery the last two days of Bucks Open Studios at Emerald- That's Friday and Saturday the 1st and 2nd of July. Hope to see you there:)

Please find examples of Ruby's beautiful pottery that’s being exhibited at Emerald as part of the Bucks Open Studios and if you can make it, call in and see all the lovely stuff that’s bursting out of the seams at Emerald's Gallery.
