About Helen Millar
My background is in Art teaching. Some years ago I made the change from the school environment to set up my home studio as this fitted in well with family life. I work with a broad range of media and techniques in my personal work and I have run workshops in a range of media, but I have found that mosaic making is the most versatile and user friendly art form for a wide range of people. It is for these reasons that I have developed a very particular, accessible type of mosaic workshop. I now have extensive experience teaching this wonderful art to individuals as well as a range of groups in the community, from the young right through to seniors. I run workshops through adult education, neighbourhood houses, schools, community gardens and from my studio. Recently I extended the space in front of my studio. It has been so good to link the garden through a covered area to the studio, serving a practical purpose and also incorporating two things I love, mosaic making and gardening. 2015-16 has also seen a little branching out with doll crafting workshops. The creative fun continues.
