Creating a mosaic toilet could be one way to spend your summer. Teresa Hattan went to find out more.
Mara Harris, with help from Megan Jeffcoat, is hoping to run a fun, relaxed workshop this summer.
But it’s not your usual art and craft workshop. This one is about sprucing up a loo and having fun.
Designing and creating a mosaic toilet, which then become strictly ornamental, is a very individual thing. There is no right way to do it, Mara says.
You can use all sorts, from old tiles, plates to crushed bottles, small mirror pieces and buttons. The brighter and more patterned the better.
Breaking the collected goods into usable sizes and pieces is great fun and suburb stress relief, Mara says. You then use No More Nails, the fast type, to glue your creation together.
It can take some time to visualise what you’re after and to work your mosaic toilet to completion.
Mara says you simply go with the flow.
And if decorating a toilet doesn’t quite appeal, why not have a go at creating a mosaic pottery pot.
Together Mara and Megan have a wide range of mosaic pieces, so if you’re interested in attending this workshop all you need to bring is a caulking gun and a tube of No More Nails Fast.
Toilets have already been collected, but bring along one if you have a spare.
The first workshop will be held from 1pm at 2 Park Lane on Sunday, November 8.
