Mosaic Garden Stone



Calendar May 29, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Colorful glass mosaics on stones make fun pops of color in your garden, window sill, or porch. These aren’t stepping stones! They are little works of art for your garden. We’ll work with pre-cut stained and other glass, silicone adhesive, and grout to make 1-2 decorative stones. Bring 1-2 stones. The best ones are no smaller than about 4” and not so heavy you cannot manage to easily carry them. Smother surfaces are ideal. Wear old clothes and /or bring an apron – grouting is messy!
