During the three-hour class, instructors share the basics of making an interior mosaic and supply the materials for a 6”x9” picture frame. Students learn how to cut and break tiles or glass and arrange that around the frame, and also view a demonstration on grouting. Students go home with a small bag of grout, and can grout the frame at home after the glue has dried. Classes are held Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. or Saturday mornings at 10 a.m., and students are allowed to bring their own beverages such as beer and wine.
Mosaic on a Stick
Lori Greene started “The Stick” (as Mosaic on a Stick is affectionately known) more than eleven years ago, spreading out roots that teach and bring together the community around her. Mosaic on a Stick serves as a social hub where students come to chat, stock up on supplies, or plan out community projects. Recent works have included a partnership with ArtScope to help local teenagers create a mosaic mural on the Hancock Recreation Center. Graduates of the studio’s various classes wind up creating tabletops, birdbaths, benches, and house numbers, many of which are displayed for sale in the store. Lori is always on hand to offer tips, working out of a studio in the back where she mines her interests in Yoruba beadwork from Nigeria, nkisi figures of the Congo, and textile patterns.
