Meet our mosaic tutor - Tess Williams

This week we visited Tess in her Surrey based workshop, and found her part way through an enormous commission. This tropical table top is so big that she is making it in three parts to make it more manageable. Only when each panel is complete will she stitch the final glass pieces into the design to link each panel together.

Tess is not only a mosaicist, but a jeweller and print maker, having begun her jewellery journey in Wernog Wood with @claireacworthjewellery. Building upon her previous printmaking experience, she also learnt a thing or two about lino relief printing with @bronteadamdesign, also in Wernog Wood.

@tesswilliamsdesigns is busy preparing for a Surrey Open Studio event in June where she will be exhibiting her work. If you are in the area, we highly recommend that you go visit her see …

… and she does all of this in between her consultancy work in the humanitarian field, now mainly delivering personal safety and security training for those travelling to hostile environments. Tess recognises the very significant value of taking time out of a stressful work lifeto fully immerse herself into her craft… we fully agree and can’t think of a better way to reboot.

Tess will be teaching mosaic here in Wernog Wood on 8-9 July, with a theme of house plaques similar to this one she made for Wernog Wood. The two day course is £240 inclusive of lunch and materials. See details here
