School & Community Projects

Melanie is highly versatile with her Artistic skills and can produce 2D and 3D Mosaic art including wall hangings, Mosaic flooring and stair work, sculptural 3D mosaic as well as Public art.  The Artist is experienced working with school and community groups of all ages and abilities.  Melanie has just completed a major Public art project with 80 International Mosaic Artists in Santiago Chile, in January 2014 !

Free first Consultation:  offered to you by the Artist, you can view a broad range of Mosaics in Melanie's portfolio and you will be showns a selection of stunning materials which you can select from.   Once you are clear on Mosaic size and materials preference for a Mosaic, Melanie will work out the costs involved for a completed Mosaic including all plywood, cement board if required, adhesives, tools and grouts.  The Artist has a day rate for each days work she spends working on the Mosaic if teaching Mosaic in the community or working from her studio.

Melanie continues her own Mosaic and weekly community work creating bespoke projects for Schools, Charities and for Public art work. Recent projects include a large mosaic funded by the Heritage Lottery for MK Arts for Health, where mosaic tiles were created using excavations from the 16th to the 19th Century in Buckinghamshire, and the Lymphoma Support group in Milton Keynes, Make a Difference special needs young people, and adults with emotional difficulties all made a tile each - which are now on permanent display to brighten up a ward at Milton Keynes Hospital.  

Other projects include:

Mosaic for the reception area of Pepper Hill primary school in Milton Keynes - every child from 3 - 7 years in the school spent 30 minutes creating this mosaic - see image below.

Olympic and Jubliee themed projects at York House, Stony Stratford in Milton Keynes, and CMK library, with families.


Garden mosaics with Richmond House tenants in Stony Stratford with adults with emotional difficulties.

Special needs and mainstream students from two different secondary schools working as a team to create a seating area and wall mosaic for Willen Hospice, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.  This project helped able students understand disability, and the two groups created an amazing piece of Mosaic together, overcoming initial barriers and stereotypes.

Gaudi based clay tiles created by six year olds for a Spanish themed garden.

Large clay totem pole sculpture and mosaic, working with bullied children to encourage confidence...creating a stunning piece of art gives a real boost to self esteem!

Mosaic tiles for Karla Duterloo, mosaicist, for an ongoing charity raising money for trafficked children in Nepal.  Work is published in a mosaic book and sold for the charity to raise money and artists around the globe donate a mosaic tile for this amazing charity.

Work at various health charities including Me Myself I with adults with emotional and physical disabilities and the Richmond Fellowship with adults with mental illness and Bromham Millers with autistic children and adults.

    Hello

    Your work is lovely.  I would love to try mosaics, it’s something I’ve wanted to try for a long time.  I have long term depression, and really want to get involved with art as I believe it will be good for me.
