Asum­mer project

Cre­at­ing a mo­saic toi­let could be one way to spend your sum­mer. Teresa Hattan went to find out more.

Matamata Chronicle - - What’s On -

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.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call Mara on 027 370 5361 or Me­gan on 027 480 2109.
