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.

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

"I have so enjoyed Emma's workshops over the course of the last year. No mosaic request ever fazes her, and she uses her knowledge and experience so skilfully to ensure that everyone is delighted, and sometimes surprised, with what they are able to achieve. Emma ensures that every workshop is a good day with a lovely atmosphere. I can't wait for my next one."

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

"My daughter and I did this course at the weekend. Fantastic and very full day. Everything was explained and questions both on the topic and around it were welcomed. Emma is a very talented artist who shares her love for colour and flair. We plan to return for further days and developing our new skills"

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

"I recently attended Emma's mosiac day with my mum. I can truly say that it was a fantastic day! The art form of mosaicing is fascinating & harder than you realise but with Emma's knowledge, guidance & skill (and patience!) you create a piece that you never thought you could when you started! I would absolutely recommend this day, you don't need any experience as Emma guides you through the whole process. Emma's art is stunning & you are mesmerised by the beautiful pieces adorning her workshop. So much inspiration. We will definitely be returning! "

" It was lovely to meet you and your Mum Jocelyn, thanks so much for your kind comments. Your butterfly was beautifully made with great attention to detail so I am confident that your next mosaic will be equally good! Ann made a lovely Beehive with clever colour combinations too."

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

"Emma was a fantastic host and teacher which made the experience even better. It was by far one of the best courses I have ever been on in my professional career being an Art teacher. I learnt so much and have a new found respect for the skill involved in mosaic art. It was amazing! Will definitely be doing it again."

abelmosaics responded:

" Laura, it was a pleasure teaching you, I'm so glad you enjoyed learning the skills for mosaic making and would love to see you here again. Your giraffe was beautifully executed! "
