About the event


Inspired by the intricate beauty of tile mosaics, a Mosaic Quilt is created by applying tiny square pieces of fabric to create the image. In this class you will create a 12 X 16 mosaic Wall-hanging. You can choose from any of the provided designs or create a design of your own. Choose a favourite photograph, or colouring page and turn it into a work of art. Need help with your design? Contact the instructor before the first class for extra support with your design:   “Mosaic is at once intricate yet majestic. And it is precisely its brokeness that lends mosaic its perception of fragile beauty - the space between the tiles is as much an intricate part of its language of beauty as the mosaic tile itself.” – Rosalina Chai*  * Roslina Chai is an author, mother, and "seeker of beauty, curator of experiences, and holder of space." She lives in Singapore, and the excerpt was originally taken from her blog.  Day One: Preparing your board, choosing/creating your design, fabric and colour discussion, cutting techniques, laying down your squares.  Day Two: Finishing and quilting your Mosaic. Applying grout, tulle, borders, batting and backing.
