Making Mosaics

Making Mosaic stepping stones for the Good Neighbours Garden

Nicola Winters lead a craft session at Chorlton Good Neighbours to make some mosaics on paving stones, to be used in the Good Neighbours garden. Members of the gardening group and an art group that uses the church hall too. all participated in making mosaics to their own designs, assisted by Nicola.

Designing and making the Mosaics

We used adhesive to fix the bits of coloured tiles and beads to the paving stone base and left them in the greenhouse to dry. Next week we will grout them and soon they will be ready to use in the garden
