MO­SAIC WORK­SHOP IN­SPIRED SHARDS OF CRE­ATIV­ITY

Central and North Burnett Times - - WELCOME -

TINY shards of glass and tile have been used to cre­ate two beau­ti­ful mo­saic art­works.

A mo­saic work­shop was held at the Mun­dub­bera His­tor­i­cal Com­plex with 15 vol­un­teers glu­ing, pol­ish­ing and grout­ing the ma­te­ri­als.

Co-or­di­na­tor San­dra Robertson, from OzMo­saics, helped par­tic­i­pants work on the Mun­dub­bera foot­print and flo­ral in­spired mo­saics, last weekend.

“This is my favourite place to come to do mo­saics,” she said.

“I feel a re­ally close re­la­tion­ship to the people and the com­mu­nity spirit is re­ally good.”

Ms Robertson started cre­at­ing mo­saics 14 years ago when she ac­ci­den­tally broke a plate.

In­spired by see­ing the art­work on tele­vi­sion, she de­cided to glue the bro­ken pieces to a bath she was ren­o­vat­ing.

“It was like light­ning,” Ms Robertson said

“As soon as I got the nip­pers in my hands and the glue I thought, ‘this is it’ and I left a ca­reer that was mak­ing a lot of money.”

Par­tic­i­pant Ros Kugel had worked on the Mun­dub­bera P-10 mo­saic and found the work­shop was a great way to take time out.

“I just like it; it is re­lax­ing,” Ms Kugel said.

“I’d like to do more craft, but I don’t have time – you do that in re­tire­ment.”
