The Art House Hove
The B & B is up and running all year round. Take advantage of the lovely place and tell you friends too. It is modestly priced and exquisite mosaics abound! Dexter's delicious breakfasts are something too. Further details here.
In May 2011 Liz was invited to exhibit a freshly-made mosaic in Lichfield Cathedral to commemorate the anniversary of the King James VIth and Ist Bible. She made this two metre high sculpture entitled 'The Chalice' of a pomegranate on stand.
The Chicago Mosaic School was the destination for Liz in November 2011, to work with Sherri Warner-Hunter learning new skills for sculptural mosaics. The success of The Chalice (see above, Exhibition of Mosaics, Lichfield Cathedral) has prompted more interest in large three-dimensional mosaic pieces and this American workshop deals with the issues around such big pieces.

The Garden Studio
The garden has grown and the semi-tropical plants have become ever more luxuriant. They provide a restful and soothing background to the courses, allowing participants a luxuriant break from mosaic making in the sunshine. NB. All 2012 mosaic courses come with light lunches provided - more time for snipping. Further course details here.
Building of a new mosaic studio
We have just completed the building of a new, sunny mosaic studio, photo alongside. We hope you can join us for a course in the studio during 2011. Further details here.
Renovation of Victorian house
During the last two years we have been refurbishing an out-of-date
Victorian house. Alongside are pictures of some of the mosaics we
have made for the place, trying to keep with the tradition that
the house demands but giving it a modern twist.
We hope you can join us for a course in 2011 and/or take advantage of what Brighton and Hove has to offer and stay with us in one of our luxurious B & B rooms. Further details here
