Table MosaicsThis is a ‘rolling workshop’ available every Saturday. It is a fabulous hands-on ‘bring-your-own-table’ mosaic workshop (no experience required), designed to get you into the ‘flow’ and enhance your creative wellness. Depending on the size of your table it is unlikely you will complete it in one sitting, so plan to spend a bit of time in the SHED. The fee is based on your table dimensions and includes: the table preparation, tiles, glue, grout, cutting implements and design – both colour and precision of patterns plus great conversation and therapeutic benefit. While your table is with us and you come to ‘play’ we will feed you with great local produce and ensure you are well hydrated.
