Mosaics have been around for centuries, but these days they don’t have to be reserved for opulent buildings or professional artists—anyone can have a go at a bit of mosaic crafting, with it being a fantastic way to get creative and the perfect choice for those that want to try something a little bit different.
Craft projects at home
Sometimes you can’t beat a good craft project at home, and whether you’re new to the arena or have been doing it for years there’s always something new to learn. The only limit is your imagination with mosaics being the perfect way to let your creativity run wild—if you can imagine it chances are you can create it, and the internet is full of project ideas if you’re looking for a bit of inspiration. It can be the ideal way to spend a rainy afternoon, and at this time of year you could even focus on Christmassy projects to really get in the festive spirit.
Start a new hobby
Everyone needs a good hobby, and mosaics could be just the thing if you’re looking for something truly artistic. A bit of practice and you’ll be well on your way to creating stunning mosaics that can be showed off with pride, and better yet, this type of hobby can be put to more practical use too—you could create mosaics for friends and family, being great gift ideas and something truly personal, and because you created something yourself it’ll be far more heartfelt than a generic present. Have you got your Christmas list sorted yet? Then get started…
Mosaics in schools
Art and design in school can encompass a whole range of different areas, but for something truly creative you can’t go wrong with a mosaic project. A lot of schools choose to go down the workshop route, getting in professional artists to run a specific class, but there’s nothing to stop you from incorporating mosaics into a wider learning programme. It can get children of all ages interested in art, often being far more enjoyable than traditional classes as anyone can have a go.
