Grand Opening: Mosaic Beach Studio

It dawned on me today, passing by the new Mosaic Beach Studio on Danforth, that making a mosaic item can be a great "green" art project. Saving your old dinnerware and then letting your kids (or yourself) smash them up and making a picture frame or a trivet is a nice way to teach conservation to the little ones.....but don't take my word for it!

Tanya Macfarlane, the owner of Mosaic Beach, is the expert on this kind of stuff and will teach you how to do more than just smash up your fine china. This weekend is the grand opening of the studio and there will be contests, cake, punch AND a community art project: the sign for the store hasn't been completed yet, so neighbourhood visitors can come by and glue a few pieces on and contribute to a piece of the Danforth signage - and maybe pick up a few mosaic tips!

The studio is at 1374 Danforth Ave. and btw, it looks like we're starting a nice little pocket of art in the east end here. Mosaic Beach joins List gallery, Luc Sculpture studio and S.P.A.C.E. on the strip between Greenwood and Monarch Park!
