Wiregrass Mosaic Project - Troy University

On Sunday October 10, and Thursday October 15, I led 4 free mosaic workshops at Troy University Campus in Dothan. October is a gorgeous month in Alabama, and we were working under a tent graciously installed there for the occasion by the University Staff.

Our goal with this project  is to demonstrate the technical feasibility of community mosaic projects by quilting together a great number of small individual mosaics.

Altogether, about 40 people came to enjoy the cutting and laying of tesserae on a mesh.

We had one 3 hours session on October 10, and three 2 hours sessions on October 15.

There were only 2 patterns proposed for these 2 first sessions.  A Traditional Roman geometric one : 

And a Malta / St Andrew's Cross

We actually spent 9 hours tiling and produced 56 individual brightly coloured 6 x 6" mosaics.

The individual pieces at the Library.

The next stage of the project will be the installation of these pieces on the rectangular table and benches in the park.

After that, we will have more sessions to realize the mosaics needed to cover the Round tables and benches. 

We need your help for the next stages !
