About Isle Be Creative
Hi! I'm Debbie and after many years teaching arts and crafts at adult education centres across Manchester, in 2006 I became a full time artist and creative facilitator.
I have created mosaic commissions - from pet portraits, a private garden mural, through to a 196 sq ft community mosaic mural, to my latest commission - a 1.6 m high fibreglass wallaby, for the Wild in Art and Hospice IOM art trail.
I now work from my quaint studio, surrounded by gorgeous Manx countryside, in the Isle of Man.
Isle Be Creative's Courses
Encaustic art is an ancient art form. Initially used to repair holes in Greek warships, beeswax became an exciting medium when mixed with pigment.
Your tutor, Debra, has worked with encaustic for over twenty years and is delighted to be able to offer this course at the teaching pod, in the grounds of her Isle of Man studio.
The studio is in the grounds of Ballabeg Farm. Part of a community of artists, Grenaby Studios...
Ever tried glass fusing? No? Boy, are you in for a treat! This one day workshop will show you just how much fun it can be.
Your tutor, Debbie will take you through all the basics, in a fun and relaxed atmosphere
Suitable for beginners (or improvers who just want to do it again) this workshop will have you creating gorgeous glass in no time.
Be prepared to learn, laugh and love your creative therapy...
A delightful way to spend a morning with like minded people.
If you have a particular outfit you wish to match, please bring colours so I can help guide you but apart from that - come as you are and I will show you how to create a beautiful mosaic pendant. You then get to make 2 pendants (or you can choose to make as a keyring as some people do).
You do not need...
I am extremely delighted to offer this indulgent 2 day course for those wishing to escape to the idyllic Isle of Man to learn how to mosaic.
This course is delivered at my working studio and is for up to 4 participants only.
What better way to free your mind from the stresses of the world, whilst learning new or developing existing skills with an artist with over 20 years of creative practitioner and teaching...
