Welcome to The Totland Bay Mosaic Arts Company
The Totland Bay Mosaic Arts Company is a local mosaic business run by Helen Goodman, teaching mosaics classes, lino-printing techniques, creating mosaics, running community projects and producing mosaic kits.
Please visit the shop for more information on my mosaic kits or contact me for more information 07764 583296.
I am a fully qualified teacher and run regular mosaic classes across the island suitable for beginners and improvers both in the morning and evening. They cover all aspects of mosaic-making using a variety of materials. Please contact me for further details or see my Facebook page for regular updates.
At the end of July, I will be running a weekend course at the London School of Mosaic. Inspired by the EY exhibition at Tate Britain, Van Gogh and Britain this summer (www.tate.org.uk/
Mosaic Coaster Kits
Local scenery in the west Wight has inspired the colour schemes of the new coaster kits. I have been making similar kits since 2004 but have recently redesigned them to reflect my new location such as Headon Heather that contains the colours of the heather on Headon Warren that overlooks both Totland and Alum Bays, which are a stone’s throw away from my new home.
The kits contain everything you need to make one coaster including clear instructions, glue, grout, a base and mosaic tiles. They are suitable for adults and children of all ages but please supervise young children, especially those under the age of three as they contain small pieces which are a choke hazard.
Kits can also be purchased at Brading Roman Villa, www.bradingromanvilla.org.uk and The Dormouse Gallery in Totland.
Currently, I am co-ordinating a large community project in Totland for the Parish Council. It began in 2017 and will continue into 2020 and will be installed on the amenities block opposite the end of the local pier on the seafront.
I have been making mosaics since 2000 and have had some great opportunities to work on projects on and off the island including with South Bank Mosaics in London in 2007 and 2008 and was commissioned to make two of the mosaics for the William Blake Society which can be seen still in Lambeth.
In Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, I was successfully selected to produce a thirteen-metre mosaic for a Heritage-Lottery funded community project in 2005 that also commissioned eighteen trail markers around the town to mark Yarmouth’s most prominent historical sites such as the Town Hall, also depicted in the mosaic itself.
