Maker's bio

For 25 years I have mosaiced pattern and wildlife murals in ceramic, marble, glass and more. We have great fun in weekly workshops bringing designs to life. When not teaching, I mosaic critically endangered wildlife, giving them a small platform to promote awareness. Since 2019 I have been shortlisted from c.3000 global entries each year in the Arts Initiative run by conservation charity Explorers Against Extinction. Regular commissions are undertaken, please enquire.

Suzanne C. reviewed: Mosaic/Chat/Create! with professional mosaicist Emma Abel

"It was great to learn a new skill, I hadn’t realised how tricky it was to cut just the right shape. I enjoyed the atmosphere within the group, very friendly and supportive, as it’s always good to meet new people. It was great to see how the mosaic built up. I really enjoyed the sense of achievement at the end, thank you for all your support."

Jennie B reviewed: Mosaic/Chat/Create! with professional mosaicist Emma Abel

"I had a fantastic creative day on a one day course with Emma at Abel Mosaics. Emma is great teacher, she provides lots of inspiration, guides you through what is possible, then patiently teaches you step by step how to create your own piece. Her stunning mosaic’s make it look easy, but I soon realised there is so much skill involved in her intricate work. The studio is well set up with a great selection of wonderful tiles in so many colours for us to use, all the tools and boards were supplied. The studio is lovely and light, looking out onto the garden. I will definitely come back and do another course with Emma, so much more to learn."

abelmosaics responded:

"Thanks very much for your Review Jennie, you made a great mosaic, lots of detail and great blending of colours. I look forward to seeing you here again."

Rick reviewed: Mosaic/Chat/Create! with professional mosaicist Emma Abel

""I much enjoyed my day with you learning something about the art of mosaic! It's a great deal more complex than a casual glance can appreciate, and to see your superb work is inspirational. I have a long way to go and will certainly want to spend a further day finishing my Goldfinch and embarking on a new design. Thank you so much for introducing me to the delights and intricacies of your mosaic art. I look forward to spending another day with you in the Spring!" "

"Thank you so much Rick, your colourful Goldfinch is taking shape and I look forward to seeing you again in the Spring."
