Join us in this fun, fast-paced evening of mosaic making within donated picture frames. The art of mosaics is a wonderful opportunity to Reuse and Recycle a variety of interesting materials, while enjoying a creative outlet! Putting individual pieces of glass, tile and mixed media together to create a mosaic is an unusually satisfying and enjoyable process.
We will learn some mosaic making basics, including how to cut and place tiles, and working with thinset mortar adhesive. Dianne will provide patterns and ideas, or you can bring ideas of your own. Patterns, simple images, and abstractions can all make beautiful mosaics!
