Expertise in Mosaic, Ceramic and Textiles

Mosaic:  The art of mosaic making can be seen as a metaphor for the process of healing, as it involves piecing together fragments to create a cohesive whole, showing the power of patience, perseverance, and the intricate skills and techniques needed in heritage crafts to overcome challenges and create skilled mosaic projects.

Ceramic: Clay and ceramics are frequently employed in community and individual skills development due to their tactile qualities, and potential to engage participants in hands-on, creative activities that enhance craftsmanship, self-expression, and a sense of personal achievement.

Textiles: We use textiles in creative work by repurposing them for their versatility, tactile qualities, and ability to add unique textures and visual interest. This also allows us to showcase traditional skills and techniques that have been passed down through generations.
