Creative talents, like houseplants and celebrities, wilt without proper attention. Nurture your muse with today’s Groupon to The Mosaic Shop. Choose from the following options:
- For $7, you get a mosaic project for one (a $14 value).
- For $14, you get mosaic projects for two (a $28 value).
- For $28, you get mosaic projects for four (a $56 value).
Each mosaic project includes:
- One of The Mosaic Shop’s projects
- Supplies including glass, marble, tile, glue, and grout
- Instructions and expert assistance<p>
While trays gather glass, tile, and marbles, expert craftspeople teach customers how to complete their projects. With a plan in mind, artists glue their pieces of glass together like the recovered shards of Elvis’s scepter. When the first stage is complete, projects stay overnight to tell ghost stories while they dry, and artists return at a later date to fill in their projects’ tiny glass chasms.
Mosaic mavens may upgrade to a larger project, such as a dragon ($26), step stone ($26), or glass-encrusted microwave for an additional fee. If desired, customers may finish their projects at home equipped with grout and accompanying instructions. The Mosaic Shop nurtures creativity daily until 6:00 p.m., and artists may arrive whenever the inspiration strikes.
The Mosaic Shop
After selling a successful mosaic shop in her native Texas, artist Wanda Hendrix followed her daughter's family to Mississippi, where she and her husband opened The Mosaic Shop in 2006. One relocation and six years later, the large and colorful studio's walls burst with more than 150 wooden shapes—from simple trays to elaborate figurines—ready to be converted into colorful mosaics. Each of the work tables share a common midsection, where glittering piles of glass stretch from end to end in a variety of shapes and colors. Visitors glue these prismatic shards to their forms before filling in crevices with grout, the same way park rangers finally made the Grand Canyon passable for golf carts. The Mosaic Shop also hosts parties for groups of anywhere from 5 to 50 guests.
