  Welcome to creating mosaic art that will withstand  weather!  In this course, we will create a 360-degree mosaic totem on a foot-tall clay pipe which can be placed in an outdoor setting.   

These are sturdy enough to  perch a saucer on top   for a birdbath or simply leave them as is and perch   them in your yard.  You are always welcome to bring items you would like to include in your mosaic, however my courses are inclusive and I provide all materials needed.  This is a 6 hour class time Saturday and 2-hour grout time Sunday, so feel free to pack a snack to take a break and stretch on Saturday – Sunday be ready to get a bit messy.

(This class will only be offered as my supply of vintage clay pipes allows)                                                 Photos: Student’s fabulous totems
