This session was led by Grace from Creative Minds who introduced us to mosaics. Grace had brought plenty of mosaic inspiration for us to look at and had asked us to bring in any interesting ceramic tiles, plates or cups that we didn’t mind smashing up to add to our choice of mosaic pieces.
We started by selecting the shape of wood we wanted to mosaic and carefully sanded the edges for a nice finish. Then we chose ceramic pieces or buttons that we wanted to create our mosaics with and applied these to the wood with tile grout/adhesive.
Some of us sketched out our designs first and others just went for it. Every now and again we would pause from our work and have a wander about to see the huge variety of approaches different people had. It was fun seeing the designs develop over the day and some of us even managed to make more than one piece!
