At The Mosaic Shop, dedicated artist Wanda Hendrix guides patrons as they unleash creativity upon more than 150 project templates including picture frames and Christmas-tree ornaments. Students draw from thousands of incandescent tiles, beads, and decorative glass pieces, using glue, grout, and telekinesis to create functional and ornamental art pieces. Small Christmas-ornament templates await those interested in creating seasonal keepsakes, and small coasters simultaneously enliven rooms and protect drink-holding surfaces. Patrons receive all necessary materials and studio time to finish each project, as well as instruction on how to grout tiles and prevent pesky museum curators from flocking to each project. This Groupon may also be applied toward the price of larger projects including Ole Miss logos ($32) and personalized initials ($20).
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.
