There have been exhibitions of her work in various countries in Europe and South Africa. Very recently her work was chosen for the Western Cape Handmade Collection and exhibited at the Design Indaba 2013 in Cape Town.
Karla's classes are not only very creative and inspire-ing but they are also therapeutic, and relaxing. Her aim is to 'bring out the Artist' and above all to have lots of fun and special moments.You will leave the course with new skills, ideas and inspiration , and with lots of newfound or fired up passion for this beautiful Art.
You will work on 20 by 20 cm boards, on which you can experiment with various mosaic-materials, try out new techniques, laying of the tiles and composition, colour coordinations and more. These should fit easily in your suitcase .
Each of your board will be an unique experience. Together it will be your piece of Art.
Karla will show you how to find inspiration for your abstract design, as well as your colour-palette for the mosaic, in the surroundings of our beautiful location in the medieval village of Castel Rigone.
You have the option to incorporate colourful handmade glass-fusions plus the local minerals brought from from Africa, glass beads and other specials at additional costs. You are free to bring your own special beads, old jewellery and other little nic- nacs you wish to use in the mosaics.
In addition to the construction of mosaics you will have the opportunity to visit the amazing mosaic park by Mosaic artist, Niki de St Phalle.
Relais la Fattoria
Your accommodation is in the charming Relais la Fattoria hotel in Castel Rigone with amazing views over Lake Trasimeno. This period hotel dates back to the 16th Century when it was a Padronale built on the site of the original castle. Castel Rigone is a quiet, medieval hill-top village set in pine-trees and far away from tourists and commercialism. The views are magnificent and there are numerous walks in the beautiful countryside surrounding the village. During the week there will be additional activities like wine-tasting, cookery lessons and fun language and culture after-dinner sessions. All are included. All you need to do is get yourselves over to Italy!
