December 11 - Broken Dish Mosaic Stepping Stone (Sliding Scale $40-$120)
Broken Dish Mosaic Stepping Stone Workshop - Offered on Sliding Scale
Sunday, December 11 | 2-4 PM PST
Create beautiful and functional art in our Broken Dish Mosaic Stepping Stones workshop. If you love mosaics, this class is for you! This stepping stone project is one of several creative reuse projects developed by artist Judy Schonebaum as she became more mindful of consumption and sustainability. In this workshop, you will repurpose dishes and give them new life! The stepping stone symbolizes new beginnings and taking steps in the right direction. This is an introductory workshop, you will have time to complete a stepping stone from beginning to end, possibly with time to lay out another to finish independently after class.
There will be ample materials for you to choose from and we encourage you to bring any dish(es) you’d like to incorporate into your stepping stone--we will safely smash them outdoors. All levels are welcome. Ages 18+
Additional mortar will be available for purchase.
