In this two-part workshop, students will learn the basics of mosaic while creating a work of art to be displayed in their garden. Students will need to bring a hammer, an object to mosaic such as a box, plate, tabletop, vase, flowerpot, or other item of their choice. Objects should be made of terracotta, glass, metal, ceramic, cement or wood in order to provide a firm foundation. Students also need to bring tiles or dishes to break in class. During the first meeting, students will break the tiles or dishes, design their mosaic, and apply broken pieces of tiles or dishes. During the second meeting, students will apply grout to their designed mosaic. Tiles can be obtained at tile stores (ask for broken ones) and dishes at thrift stores.
