There are currently eight villagers in the Mosaic Workshop who have a range of abilities and skills. With the guidance of co-workers and volunteers, villagers create beautiful mosaics. Some of these mosaics include mirrors, wall hangings, votive holders, coasters, tabletops and Lazy Susans. Villagers choose simple and complex designs with a variety of color schemes. They prepare the tiles themselves and then place and glue the tile pieces down. Volunteers grout the mosaics.
“It is a lot of work, but it is all worth it!” says Eva Herz.
