Make a slate mandala garden mosaic with Mossy Mosaic



Suitable for beginners and those with more experience, in this workshop you will design and create your very own bespoke, slate garden mosaic with Jacky Cox from Mossy Mosaic. Mosaic making fits in perfectly with our vision of a world where recycling, repurposing and upcycling is the norm. Old slate can form the perfect base for a garden mosaic, hanging from the shed or balancing on a border. Bring new colour and interest into your garden with your very own bespoke design using vitreous glass, old china and sea washed glass! In this workshop you will use a reclaimed slate base to make a gorgeous mandala mosaic. You will be shown how to cut china and vitreous glass and you can also include sea washed glass and glass nuggets as part of your design. We will embed the tiles into an adhesive mortar mixture (an alternative method to gluing & grouting). All materials are provided, including reclaimed fishing rope to hang your completed piece (when available). Jacky has been immersed in mosaic making for over 15 years and is an avid beach comber, exploring the beaches of Scotland with her lurcher dog Pip, and often incorporating her finds of sea washed glass and pottery into her own mosaics.
