Design, Detail, Delight! Uncover the World of Mosaic Tapestry!

Make your own mosaic tapestry inspired by the Rajesthani mosaic tapestries of Laurel Skye! Participants will apply Thin-Set (concrete-based medium) to wood panels fitted with hanging hardware to create a tiny jeweled tapestry. A wide range of costume jewelry, beads, ball chains, and glass will be provided but you are encouraged to bring any personal treasures you wish to preserve, as well as the random lone earring, unworn necklaces, whatever you like! This project is a great way to recycle objects on hand to create dazzling new treasures. This is a 2-part workshop; participants will attend both workshop dates, Saturday, April 13th & Sunday, April 14th from 12–4 PM to craft their mosaic tapestries. Light snacks, refreshments and all materials are included!

What we’ll provide:

  • Water, Seltzer and Soda - Drinks are on us while you’re here
  • Mosaic Tiles and Tools - Everything you’ll need to make and take your project
  • Little Nibbles - Light snacks for creative fuel

What guests should bring:

  • If you have an idea, image or drawing already, bring it for inspiration.
  • Please wear closed-toed shoes. Dress casually, with layers to adjust to your comfort.
  • We'd love to take a few pics of you working on your piece for our social media promotions. Let us know if you'd rather not have your image shared on our platforms.
