Not for the first time on this blog have I had cause to write about the wealth of artistic talent, of all kinds, here in Swindon. From the ‘big boys’ of Ken White and David Bent to everything in between from the Old Town Garden’s art group to Artsite and the Postmodern. There’s just so, so much art of all kinds – it really is incredible and wonderful.

Anyway listeners, this post is by way of a shout out for Lynette Thomas and Artkore mosaics. Here’s a link to her website:

Lynette operates from, and is involved with, Artsite and the Postmodern and Number Nine in Theatre Square. I love that place and have bought several pieces there – including one of Lynette’s at it happens.

Through December Lynette is running mosaic workshops so if you fancy having a go at this art form now’s your chance:


Learn to cut, glue and grout a mosaic…. using found objects, jewellery, mirror and coloured glass to either work on your own projects or make presents for Christmas. All materials are provided.

If you would like to come along to a workshop there are still some spaces left on a Tuesday evening 7.30 – 9 pm. £10 per session. It is held at Number Nine in Theatre Square which is opposite The Post Modern Gallery.

To book a place email Lynette at:’

As it happens Lynette’s is another business, along with my own AA Editorial Services, that is a product of Outset Swindon’s start-up business courses.
