Choose Between Two Options

  • $10 for $20 toward a mosaic project for one
  • $20 for $40 toward mosaic projects for two, valid for two mosaic projects

Projects valued at $20 or less include vases, picture frames, birdhouses, crosses, hearts, animals, and star-shaped boxes, although the value may be used toward projects greater than $20. Once guests have chosen their mosaic form, a staff member gives instructions on how to adorn it with a colorful pattern by gluing on tiles and other materials. Because the glue needs time to set, guests will leave the 30- to 90-minute session with a grout kit and instructions so they can grout their piece two days later at home. The materials used are safe for all ages.

Smashing Times

The sight of children playing with mounds of broken glass is not uncommon at Smashing Times studio. That’s because each shard of tile, china, or glass has been tumbled to remove any sharp edges before the young ones transform them into multicolored mosaics. All of the shards, arranged by type and color like pieces of a yet-to-be-discovered puzzle, present themselves for collages of all sorts, including interactive glass-fusing projects.

When not helping artists create their own silver jewelry, glass pendants, or mosaic mirrors, the artists at Smashing Times create custom installations. Ranging from massive exterior murals to miniature mosaic lamps, the projects adorn ordinary surfaces with pinpricks of color, stylized to create geometric patterns or a grove of deceptively inedible citrus trees and grapevines.
