So this coming Bank Holiday Monday I’m super excited to be taking part in the Old Leigh Artist Market! EEEKKK!

This is the second time for Mrs Mosaic to be part of this lovely Artists Market, I was lucky enough to be invited last August to take part in their first one since lockdown, and it was simply a joy to be part of. It was a chilled laid back vibe, and the weather was kind too, with the rain holding off and although overcast it wasn’t chilly.

There was a myriad of art styles and practice with lots of us doing ‘live’ demos. This was quite a challenge for me, something I’ve not braved before, as its really tricky with cement adhesives drying out too quickly, and I worried about health and safety aspects too-what if a young child or toddler wedged a curious finger into the mosaic when I wasn’t looking?

I decided to focus on a couple of my beach inspired mosaics for the garden, using locally found shells and stones I thought it was an apt way to tie into the event next to the sea. This was a fairly safe means of demonstrating as there was no cutting involved. Well the demo went pretty well and there were no sticky fingers, my water supply was sufficient and I didn’t get myself too messy.

I made a few sales of my work, and I had plenty of positive feedback from many visitors, one of them visiting all the way from Ireland, she bought one of my green mirror mosaics to take all the way back home, so I hope that brought her joy when she got home.

This time I’ve decided to demonstrate one of my butterfly mosaics and possibly a heart, so passers-by can see the sort of mosaic they can leave with from a 2 hour taster workshop with me.

So if you can pop past and say hi to me, and check out all the other talented local artists also doing live demos it would be lovely to see you down at Strand Wharf 10am to 4pm Bank holiday Monday 2nd May 2022.
