Today we hosted the Dearne Community Arts’ Festival mosaic project. As part of the festival’s remit to champion creativity and celebrate community, a community mosaic is being created which was started today. Artist Ruth Waterworth made a design for us to stick tiles to so that we could create a beautiful mosaic to be displayed at the arts’ festival on 28th September this year.

We had to stick tiles to the picture/ letter outlines:

We also had the opportunity to let the children have a go at foam mosaic coasters:

Other local community groups will be taking part in mobile mosaic workshops over the next few weeks, making mosaics which reflect their group’s logo or ethos. The finished mosaic will be displayed at the Dearne Community Arts’ Festival on 28th September at Astrea Academy Dearne.
