Its the end of August and the Mosaic for Muswell Hill, North London is nearly finished!
The final Mosaic Art Workshop with the Public is complete and I am so pleased with how its all turned out. Around 50 people of all ages, cultures and religions took part over 3 afternoons. The first workshop was part of the Midsummer Muswell Festival in June 2016, the second was 2 weeks later and the third was part of the final Summer Sessions in the Methodist Church, Pages Lane.
It’s so wonderful to provide an activity which transcends any barriers that people may have and make something beautiful together. Every person can be proud of their new found skill and feel a sense of ownership of the Artwork. I’ve had some wonderful feedback from the participants who are all excited for this new addition to St James square – something that will give Muswell Hill more community identity.
I’m looking forward to putting the very last few tiles down over the coming weeks and then we can finalise an installation date for October 2016. I’m looking forward to everyone admiring their creation regularly, once it is in its final position.
You can see all the photos from the Making of the Mosaic on My Facebook Page and some on my Instagram. A full gallery of images will be posted in the Gallery Section of this website, after the installation.
For details on the design of the Mosaic, please see the original post on the blog.

Stay tuned for a final update on when its installed and the big reveal!
With My Warm Wishes,
