Celebrate Summer: Quick & Dirty Mosaic Class

On Saturday, July 9 from 1-4 PM, we’ll be having a quick and dirty mosaic class, featuring flowerpots and stepping stones.  Mosaic is much easier than it looks, and makes classy and durable decorative items.  You will learn the mechanics of setting tile using thin-set mortar, and get some artistic guidance to create your own designs in the future!  And you’ll have a jazzed-up flowerpot or stepping stone to keep.  Class is from 1-4 in the afternoon, and project materials will cost $15.  Please reserve your space here, via EventBrite by Tuesday, July 5.

If you’re not a gardening sort, you can bring your own surface to mosaic instead.  (Materials cost in this case would be $10/sqft of tile + $5 incidentals.)  We recommend something stiff and warp-resistant like MDF.  Tabletops, trays, Ikea Lack tables, often work as long as mortar or Weld-bond will stick to them.  Please let us know ahead of time if you’re bringing something larger than a square foot in surface area so that we are sure to have enough tile on hand for everybody.  You are also welcome to bring your own tile, bottlecaps, glass garden pebbles, broken china, or whatever accent pieces you’d like to use.

Class will be taught by Ashley, the member who created the koi table at left!  She’s working on two companion pieces: one with a turtle, the other with dragonflies!
