I'm so happy you've dropped by! Meraki Mosaics is a creative arts initiative I've started in Ottawa 2016. My goal is to build a fun community that recycles stained glass scraps and other found objects into awesome mosaic art.
The ancient art of mosaics is an art form anyone can partake and find pleasure in! For those who feel they can use some meditative time but can't sit still long enough to do it - this is the art form for you! The act of creating mosaics persuades you to be in the moment and to slow down. You tend to let go of life's bothersome details as you contemplate the various colours and textures of glass and other bits you might add to your mosaic design. And,if you pay close attention, the glass fragments will even guide your creation. Mosaics are especially fun for those who claim they are not artistic. It is amazing how your creations with stained glass will often prove you absolutely wrong!
I my excited to offer mosaic workshops at my studio,as well as in convenient locations across the Ottawa area. All materials and tools are provided and absolutely no experience is required. Bring a friend, a sense of adventure and an open mind! Be prepared to unleash your creative self and even become addicted to this mesmerizing art form.
Please browse our pages for our workshop schedule, participants' mosaic art, my mosaics and more! When you have a chance, I welcome your comments about your mosaic experiences or the ramblings on my blog. Hope to see you soon! Trish
