Since ancient days, art has been called the language of the soul, a language at once symbolic, metaphorical and real, right there in front of us. Making art opens up new possibilities, teaches us about ourselves and the world, and calls us to act as creators in our own right. As the Irish poet, author and priest, John O'Donohue says, "at the deepest level, reativity is holiness."
Mosaic art in particular, is compelling for several reasons. Not only are we bringing together diverse pieces and joining them to create a new "whole" - but people of all ages and abilities can be successful – even on the first try!
A larger mosaic piece can be created by a group of friends or colleagues. A pre-determined design and glass palette means everyone can be a part of the creative process. Size, design and price to be determined based on the number of participants (10-100+!), budget and space available to hang/display finished piece.
Picture Yourself in Israel:
Jerusalem Stone Framed Mirror
Jerusalem Stone is a generic
term describing natural stone
material coming from several
areas of the Holy Land. Each
participant will use small
pieces of Jerusalem stone to
create a 15" x 15" mosaic-
framed mirror that brings to
mind the Kotel — the famous
Western (or Wailing) Wall in
Jerusalem. Participants will
leave notches/crevices in
which to place small parchment papers bearing prayers or notes, as has been done at the Wall since the 18th century.
(Workshop takes two days — approx. 3 hours to create, and 1 hour to grout the next day. $250 pp for up to 20 people. This project may also be a group mosaic project at a cost of $375)
