He pioneered the use of handmade fusions to create mosaic art.  His themes are varied, but his passion is primarily whimsical (‘cheeky’) animals, especially his peacocks.  The Rickie Report shares the details and urges you to register now!

At the workshop, students will enjoy plenty of discussion, practical demonstrations, hands on work and individual instruction. Students are encouraged to bring their own design and use a variety of fusions from the selection Martin brings. The workshop focus is the mosaic process and as each student’s pace is unique – some may not finish. To mitigate the possibility that a student may not complete his project  special fusion kits (new this season) to build specific designs will be available. When you register, you can select a specific kit.

Martin’s engaging style and humor is the highlight of the workshop. In addition to just having fun, students are going to hear Martin’s take on some of the mosaic fundamentals such as andamento, keystoning, grout and other techniques. Martin will also do various demonstrations throughout the workshop.

Martin Cheek has been creating mosaics professionally for 30 years and has shared his expertise in six best-selling books on this subject.  With a degree in graphic design from Exeter College of Art & Design in the United Kingdom, Martin went on to work in the film industry as an animator where he set up his own production company, Cheeky Films Ltd.  He has worked on award winning films and puppet animation projects including The Wind in the Willows, Paddington Bear, Noddy in Toyland, and Portland Bill.

Martin’s latest book, Fused Glass Mosaics, is a good illustration of  the exciting medium of using fused glass mosaics. The text is a rich bestowment of Martin’s detail to order, his passion and humor, and his you-can-do-it encouragement. This book serves as an art course in mosaics, whereby each chapter offers a different stylistic challenge. In fulfilling these projects, the reader will develop their own individual style.
