Mosaic sessions: get involved

Opportunity to create mosaic artworks on 3 Saturdays: 19th and 26th November, and 3rd December.

There are three elements to the Public Art planned for the shopping centre: standing stones, mural work and wall mounted mosaics. You can learn more about the overall project here.

For the mosaic element, artist Clare Goodall has designed three panels inspired by local nature, flora and fauna. Clare worked with Botley Primary School earlier in the year on ideas and for the design, she held mosaic making sessions at our Public Art Open Day in March and sessions with local participants to create the first panel in the summer. In September and October she worked with students at North Hinksey Primary School to create the second panel. Now she is looking for 8 local people to help create the third and final panel.

Clare will hold mosaic workshops on the mornings of Saturday 5th, 19th and 26th November, 10am to 12pm in Seacourt Hall. She is looking for 8 volunteers – adults and young people 12 years upwards – who can commit to all 3 dates. If you are interested contact goodall200@btinternet.com The hall will be open to all on those dates too so you can call in to observe the work and find out more about the overall project.

The mosaic panels should all be finished by December and are likely to be the first part of the artwork to be installed. Look out for more news coming soon.
