Mosiac Work

Thursday, May 05, 2016 8:22 PM
Since February, a dedicated group of year six students have been learning the ancient art of mosaics.  They have learned to safely use tools to chip, slice pieces which fit and create a picture or design.  Many grade 5 children are keen to begin lunchtime classes.  My stash of speciality tiles is sorely diminished! Offerings of any left overs, especially of small square tiles (those which come in a sheet) would be gratefully received.      Pat Pooley
