In this experience you’ll make your own mosaic at the SoWa Mosaics studio in the heart of Boston’s Art + Design district! SoWa Mosaics is a bright and welcoming space featuring mosaics made with homemade tiles of all shapes and sizes. Each student chooses a square board or picture frame as their base. We will spend a few minutes talking about mosaics and our unique process then you’ll get started glueing tiles and creating your own unique mosaic selecting from an abundance of our handmade colorful tiles. During the workshop we’ll be walking around to help guide and encourage your work. For smaller groups we like to sit down and create one with you too! At the end of the workshop, your mosaic will be glued and safe to take home but needs a day to get sturdy and dry completely before you can grout it. Each student goes home with a goodie bag containing grout, gloves and instructions on how to put the finishing touches on the artwork. After or before the workshop we encourage you to walk around and visit the 100+ other artists, galleries and shops here. Sundays are the most active with several other studios open and a vintage market in the basement. On Sundays in May thru October we have food trucks and outdoor markets too!
I've has been making colorful and abstract mosaics for 15 years using mixed media and polymer clay. My tiles are all handmade, which allows for unique patterns, shapes and sizes. My work can be found in galleries, cafes, schools, corporate buildings and private offices around Boston. I am an active member of Art in Giving, which sells and loans art to raise money for Pediatric cancer research. I am a Massachusetts native, Skidmore and Babson alum, that spent 12 years in software marketing before pursuing this art dream. Now I teach workshops for all ages, host birthday parties and corporate team building events at my Boston studio, SoWa Mosaics.
