Magic Mosaic Mushrooms!

Sunday afternoon Mosaic Mushroom Workshop resulted in some fabulous multi-coloured, glittering new mushrooms that will brighten up a few gardens.

These ladies used their love of colour and creating in the studio,
and besides leaving with their completed projects,
I think we have added a few new mosaicists to our group!

Here they are doing the initial piecing of the glass and tiles.

So addicting, bet you can't do just 1...... 

They were so into it and quick, that everyone chose to do 2 mushrooms.

Tuesday evening it was down to the garage to the messy,
but rewarding, job of grouting. 

Here is the messy part...... 

.....and this.....

is the rewarding part! 


Here is a reminder and a photo of the next scheduled workshop:
Friendly Dragonfly
