Art can be used to express a range of feelings, from painting weeping willows to depict a sombre state to building an installation piece of bubble-blowing robotic alpaca to convey to the girl next door that you’d like to borrow some sugar. Show your artistic side with a mosaic workshop and create a beautiful mosaic mirror at Creative Reflection for R199.
Much like pistachio and peri-peri popcorn flavoured ice-cream, the ancient and therapeutic art form of mosaic is underrated, but the carefully composed piecing together of bits of tile, glass or stone to create images of everything from dolphins to a Stormtrooper is no easy task. At Creative Reflection’s comprehensive 4-hour workshop, suitable for adults and children, the highly skilled and knowledgeable instructors will assist you to create a 30cm mosaic mirror masterpiece to hang in your bedroom or Batcave.
This art form is also extremely relaxing, allowing you to embrace your inner artist in a calming environment whilst forgetting about the piles of work on your desk or the errands you need to run before the Mayans are proved right. All materials are provided for you and the workshop is geared to be easy to follow and, most importantly, extremely enjoyable.
“Thank you so much for helping me make my mirror—it’s beautiful” — Lee DB, Johannesburg
Art fact: A mosaic artist in Nebraska successfully made the world’s largest mosaic out of jellybeans and old shoes. This was until the shoes started to smell foul and the man had to disassemble the entire mosaic much to his dismay.
