Activities at The Grange

Out of the Blue Mosaics with Aimee Harman

Mon 19 - Fri 23 Jul 2021

Out of the Blue Mosaics with Aimee

Create a beautiful mosaic picture or mirror using both traditional and modern techniques. No previous experience is necessary. Learn skills that give you confidence to approach any mosaic project indoors or out. Handouts will be provided together with a suppliers list so that you can continue at home.

Your journey is with the blue tesserae calling you to take the traditional path that meanders across the board. However, you will create passages and voids and 'out of the blue'. It’s like waking from a deep sleep and seeing Mother Nature burst through the cold hard earth as you fill the voids with embroidered flowers, glass beads, sparkle gems and a dynamic array of colourful textiles.

“From out of the blue, magic is found."

About Aimee Harman

There are no limits with mosaics. They can be interpreted into your own style, using different mediums to create art unlike anyone else's without having to have any drawing abilities. Aimee has been involved with the fascinating, and ever-evolving art of mosaic since 1997.

Her mosaic work based on Minerva - the Roman goddess - is displayed on board Belmond and The Northern Belle, the vintage trains previously known as The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. 

From school visits, to cruises, talks for WI groups, workshops from home, Create and Craft TV demonstrations, and having a mosaic book published, her list of experience is quite substantial considering she took it up as a hobby in her 30s, 'A late starter', her mother once said.

"This skill also gives me confidence to adorn my own home in my art, so that I can look back at this lockdown time we are spending there, and hold those better memories as art is very healing."

Aimee lives in Peacehaven, East Sussex and is a grandmother of three. See aimeeharman.com
