WHILE MOST OF THE WORLD HAS BEEN PUT ON A HALT, CREATIVITY IS NOT CANCELLED!
I am so thankful to be able to continue to share the joy of mosaics by offering projects-to-go to enjoy at home. I’ve made a “mosaic menu” of sorts, similar to how projects are chosen at our shop, where you select your wooden base, choose your assortment of glass colors, and pick a grout color to finish it.
“Everything you need to make the mosaic will be included. Spread out a blanket in the yard, find a picnic table, or get comfy at your kitchen table & CREATE!!”
WHAT ARE MOSAICS, YOU ASK?
t is an art form dating back at least 4,000 years! It is the assemblage of broken pieces of glass (or tile, stone, pottery, etc.) held together with adhesive and grout. There is something about the shine, sparkle, and color of glass that makes it an interesting and unique medium to work with. Mosaic making can be very meditative and a great way to practice mindfulness. It can bring calmness in a time of stress – I know this firsthand! Not only that, but mosaics are unique, quirky, colorful, and so much fun to do! I’m going to show you how simple creating a mosaic masterpiece is. They are fun for all ages – even my toddler has made a few!
I sure do miss all of the creative energy in the mosaic studio. Getting to see the excitement and wonder as customers come through our doors, the peaceful and contemplative-zone customers get in while creating, and the look of accomplishment as a mosaic project is complete. Nothing compares to that! I am not sure what the future holds, but for now, I find joy in putting together these simple mosaic projects and hope you have joy while creating them.
