The sculpture will be up to 16cm x 16cm x 12cm in size and made onto a 20cm square wooden board.

All materials will be provided, but you are also welcome to bring any special tiles that you have to create a personalised sculpture!

Day 2 - Starting Mosaic
Day 3 - Mosaic using direct method
Day 4 -  Finishing Mosaic and Grouting the sculpture to take home.


Tutor: Leona Matuszczak

Leona is a Mosaic Artist, Art Workshop Facilitator and Creativity Coach from London in the U.K. She has a bold use of colour and draws inspiration from Historical Tile work, Sacred Sites such as Stone Circles and the plants she grows at her Allotment plot. Leona has a strong emphasis on participation, feeling that the process of making Art is important for personal development and great for bringing people together in their community. 

Her works include a major Public Artwork at St James Square, Muswell Hill, North London in December 2016, made with around 50 participants and a large Community Mosaic in East Finchley, of which MP Jeremy Corbyn opened in 2014.
