Ceramic artist Dawn Hair began leading the mosaic making classes last week, helping participants to eventually create beautiful cut-tile artworks from old ceramics pieces, china, tiles and glass.
In the second session, we continued thinking about our designs, and the larger group design. We looked at some old images of the Inverclyde area, including the factories, shipbuilding, and candid street scenes – the purpose is to give our mosaics more of a specific theme rather than the ‘under the sea’ theme which proved to be too general.
Some of the participants started cutting up some larger pieces of tile and placing them on maquettes before they start sticking anything down with grout.
Eventually, we are hoping to have the mosaics featured in our upcoming Broomy’s Bees Garden, so whether you’ve tried mosaic-making before or you would like to try your hand at a new skill, then pop along to the Tuesday evening classes. Classes take place at the Broomhill Art Flat in Broomhill Court.
This is a great skill to have, and a hobby that can be made out of breaking an old cup!
Mosaic Madness is non-committal and open to all ages and abilities, under 12’s to be accompanied by an adult.
