Susie Chaikin is an artist whose practice encompasses painting, mosaic and embroidery. She is showing her work at the Makers Emporium Stand. On Saturday 15th September she is giving a Mosaic Workshop with Susie Chaikin. You will be making a complete mosaic piece to take home and display. Using a pre-cut heart shape made by Susie and pre-cut mosaic. She will demonstrate how to cut the pieces, and how to mix the grout. You are encouraged to integrate something personal into the mosaic by either bringing a special or broken plate, small found object or piece of jewellery of sentimental value.
“My main aim is to translate and inject this joy and beauty into my mosaics, textile hangings and sculptures using an eclectic collection of images, patterns, China, birds and figures that are either glued or stitched. I am a real cuckoo for colour and pattern and love rummaging around in car boots and antique shops for my finds. Making art totally thrills me - I create flowers, bird ladies and hearts that just seem to grow out of my body. If you have read The Boy Who Grew Flowers by Jen Wojtowicz you will understand what I mean!”
