Mosaic Workshop (Picassiette – using broken china)

Thursday 19th July 2018
Dotty Gallery, Twyford, Leicestershire

Meaning stolen plate or scrounger, picassiette is the technique of using broken china to make mosaic patterns. It is also known as memoryware, so if you have any china with sentimental connections, it can be worked into the design. This one day workshop will cover this mosaic making technique to make a decorative panel or mirror. The workshop runs 10.30 - 4pm and costs £45.
