Workshop Proposals
I have developed a technique for making unique mosaic projects with schools. With its four stages the project can be completed within one term. The technique is entirely safe - children as young as four can take an active part. The result is a beautiful piece of art designed by your pupils, which can be hung in a prominent place within your school. It can also be used as your school logo and incorporated into letterheads, Christmas cards or printed onto T-shirts!
