Materials saved from the landfill:
ceramic plates, scrap glass
cutting tile; mixing and casting concrete
Learn to use broken plates and forgotten tiles to create a beautiful DIY mosaic! Perennial staff will guide you through each step from cutting tile, mixing concrete and designing your stone. You’ll discover which tools are best for cutting glass vs. tile, and how to recognize different materials. Each participant will create a unique stepping stone to take home to their outdoor spaces, and a baking pan mold to continue casting more stones at home!
This is a virtual class that will be conducted via Zoom. Participants will be emailed information about how to participate prior to the class. You may pickup kits containing the following materials on Thursday, June 4 from 12-2pm, or email email@example.com to arrange another time.
8″ round metal baking pan (to cast your stone in)
scraps of glass and ceramic (please include a color palette in your notes, or we will decide for you!)
dried concrete mixture (portland cement and sand)
pair of disposable gloves
You will need to provide:
hammer / any glass or tile cutting tools (optional – we will provide scraps small enough to mosaic with)
mixing bucket (like an ice cream container)
measuring cup scoop or old yogurt container
scrap paper + pencil
extra mosaic materials (optional – if you have old broken plates, etc.)
