BITS & PIECES- MOSAIC Workshop June 8, 2019, 9 a.m. – 12:00 noon

Don’t throw out those broken dishes! We all have pieces of broken dishes, vases, and other beloved ceramic objects. Artist and educator Marilyn Orner Cromwell will help you turn them into new works of art in her mosaic workshop, BITS & PIECES.

Bring a flower pot, a garden stepping stone, or a wooden plaque to decorate with your shards. Wood should be sealed with gesso or a coat of paint (it won’t show) prior to using. Clay flower pots are good to go, as is. Pieces can be shared.

At this workshop, you will be shown how to cut, design and attach your pieces. Your work will probably need to be completed at home, but the technique and materials will be demonstrated and you will have instructions to take with you. This is a hands-on workshop, and those hands may want a pair of gloves (of the medical or dishwashing variety). Fun and relaxing!

Marilyn Orner Cromwell is a painter, a teacher with IS 183, a member of 510 Warren Street Gallery in Hudson, and a member of the National Association of Women Artists.

Fee: $35 (includes a $5 materials fee).
