Tutor: Jo Luker

This course will run 10 AM - 4 PM on Saturday 25 May 2019 and 10 AM - 1 PM on Sunday 26 May 2019.

Come and learn how to create your own bird bath or patio bowl using recycled, beautiful, broken china and found objects. This is a very inspiring and therapeutic way to spend a weekend by fitting broken pieces together and creating something new.

All materials are provided, with an emphasis on recycled and expressive art. You are welcome to bring your own china or special pieces to include in your artwork, if you wish. On Saturday, we'll plan and glue our bird baths. On Sunday, we'll grout and clean them.

At the end of the course, you'll have your own unique mosaiced bowl (about the size of a dinner plate).

What to bring: Bring your lunch. You can bring any special pieces you'd like to include in your piece. A plastic ice-cream container or yogurt container for collecting your pieces is helpful. Apron and plastic gloves for grouting (optional). We will provide tea and coffee in the staff-room. All materials (china, cement bowl, adhesive and grout) are provided.

Learning outcomes:
- Learn the direct mosaic method
- Learn about mosaic products and using tools
- Identify appropriate materials to recycle

Our mission is to provide quality affordable and accessible lifelong learning opportunities for our community.
