Newsletter: Summer 2012
Martin Cheek Mosaics Newsletter Summer 2012
Greetings from Broadstairs! As always we are all very busy here. Margaret is painting a still life commission of a cream tea. Mollie is studying hard for her exams. Thomas is working on an architectural project which he will submit for the Royal Academy Summer Show and I am making another Clangers mosaic.
I have just returned from a very successful tour of the US – giving 14 courses in 10 weeks. It was very exciting and I met lots of really wonderful and creative people on my trip.
Since being back from my US tour I have set up three shops on Etsy – to sell my mosaic fusions and also prints and greetings cards of our work. I have been wanting to do this for many years but I was always disappointed with the quality of the prints – until now. The printer we are using now is really excellent and we are thrilled with results.
Mosaic Courses in 2012. As well as the courses that we run here at Flint House, I will also be touring Canada in the fall – visiting Montreal, Toronto, Edmonton and Victoria.
Istanbul. Once again we will be returning to Istanbul for a second year to run another course at the lovely Caferega Medresesa
The course dates this year are November 8-18.
The studio holds 15 students and we already have 11 x booked – so there are still 4 x places left.
But if you have any more questions please feel free to ask me.
You can call me if you wish – my land line is: 0044 1843 861958 My cel is: 0044 794 988 4620
It would be great to see you in Istanbul.
So – as you can see we have lots going on and I hope that something in our programme appeals to you.
We hope to see you soon.
Warmest wishes Martin
