Are you interested in Mosaic?

Saturday 4 – Sunday 5 September 2010

Are you interested in Mosaic?

This two-day workshop about learning and understanding the art of mosaic will be held at the Kinglake West Uniting Church in September.

Mosaic is the art of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials. It may be a technique of decorative art, an aspect of interior decoration, or of cultural and spiritual significance. (Wikipedia).

Perhaps many who have lost homes in the fire regions were able to recover pieces of memorabilia from home sites and are not quite sure how to preserve them. Mosaic may well be the answer. Creating a very special art piece that can be placed in a new home that brings both the old and the new into harmony may help to bring about a sense of connection to the old and the new.

Mrs Barbara Ramage and Mrs Lorraine Ralston will facilitate Working with Mosaic. Both are experienced craftswomen who will demonstrate and teach participants the foundation of this art form.

The workshop is sponsored by Unitingcare Bush Fire Recovery and co-facilitated by Bette Phillips, Creative Ministries Network.

The workshop is of no cost to participants; however, bookings are essential, as numbers are limited to ensure each individual will have the experience of learning the craft.

Please bring a plate to share for lunch both days.
