Day 1: Creating (eco friendly) resin tiles, using many natural, found and recycled shimmering inclusions. Concept, composition & design, focus on the science of colour through emotions.
Day 2: Creating a layered collage, using many recycled materials: fabric, fibbers, paint, pigments & foils, layering this medium under what Nikki has coined 'impasto glass' (raised glass technique) using recycled 'fused' wine bottles, Smalti and crystals, resulting in a wonderfully rich, textural effect.
Day 3: Personal effects, words and memorabilia, finding your own & expressing your own personal style.
