AIGA Mosiac Workshop

This summer Johannah led a mosaic workshop coordinated by the local AIGA chapter, a community of creative professionals with an emphasis on design. We had about 20 people, so we spread out on the big steel tables that usually serve as workspace for metalworking projects at Phoenix Handcraft.

This fantastic group hung out for about two hours, making small spontaneous mosaics with a variety of materials. Though most were new to mosaics, the results were wonderful! Johannah’s favorite students are those who declare themselves “not creative” or “not artistic.” Given a little direction and lots of freedom to explore, those inner artists can really start to show themselves.
