Schools and Community Projects
I work on a variety of Schools and community arts projects with a range of budgets. I will listen to what you want to achieve and help you get the best out of your mosaic project. Take a look at some examples for inspiration.

Working with children aged 5 - 11 we produced this mosaic elephant in just one day. The 30 inch cut out elephant shape was decorated in mosaic inspired by India as part of the school multi-cultural week.
Installed on The Pavilion in Queens Park Recreational Ground, Nottingham.
“We weren’t quite sure what sort of designs we wanted for our project to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Julie helped us decide by talking about what we hoped to achieve and what we thought would be attractive once installed."
"Julie worked with students age 3 to 19 helping them to create our own Olympic rings. She captured the imagination of the students; they loved working with Julie on the project. She helped them to explore the qualities of the materials and think about patterns and shape whilst creating the mosaic. The end result was fantastic" Andrea McKenzie - Oakfield School
"A high quality and extremely rewarding project generating much enthusiasm amongst the children at School. Julie was a pleasure to work with and superb with the children leading to a very positive experience all round." Sarah Harmer, Willesley School, Leicestershire
"Many thanks Julie, our first mosaic workshops with children here in Arnot Hill Parkl and I think they've been a great success. Can't wait to see the work when it's been installed"
Sarah Cook, Gedling Borough Council.
