Newington Court

Sept/ October 2014

 

Residents were keen to depict a local image and an oast house was chosen as the main theme 

I was impressed by how patiently everyone worked on his or her chosen areas, especially the lady who filled in all the lettering of 'Newington' in small pieces using tweezers!  

 

The finished piece is displayed on the outside of the residential home at Newington, Kent.

Bevin Court July/ August 2014

 

The residents chose a pirate ship theme at the initial consultation. We had a lot of fun creating the underwater shell scape area - using a range of materials including some eggshell covered starfish!

 

The finished piece is displayed in the Foyer of Bevin Court 

 

Participants are keen to work on individual mosaic projects and have asked Mosaic Malarky to return to run some more sessions

St Martins Residential home April/ May 2014

 

 

During the initial consultation coffee-morning, it came to light that St Martin is the Patron Saint of wine and indulgence! So it was decided to border a cornucopia of fruits with the Battle Abbey arch and bunches of ripened grapes. We have used various different styles and materials including wooden leaves covered with eggshell mosaic

 

 

Royal Terrace, St Leonards

May/ June 2014

 

 

The residents involved were keen to

create a crown as the main image due to the namesake of their home and designed the border pattern

 

The mosaic is displayed at the entrance of the building for all to see

 

 

...."More than just a mosaic is the ability to get people to smile. Every time I see our mosaic it reminds me of the good time had in creating it." Jayne Sands

Torfield Terrace

Residential home

Dec 2013/ Jan 2014

 

After a lively consultation where several ideas were aired - I decided to go with the Badger and Fox idea as they represent animals who regularly visit the residential gardens and are much loved by the residents involved with the programme.

 

`It has been very sociable as a group activity. I would like to do more of these craft activities ie felt making, etc... to use our hands and armsdoing something creative`

Thalia House Residential Home July/Aug 2013

 

This mosaic project became two as residents chose quite different themes. The flower vase developed as an intuitive piece - I drew the vase shape and the ladies worked their magic! The De La Warr was a great challenge involving a good degree of concentration, patience, and diligence! These mosaics were a lot of fun and the participants worked really well together on each piece as a team

The initial idea for the sign was a welcoming handshake - I incorporated this emblem into the design at the base of the tree of life to show strength of fellowship

Strome House  Residential home July/Aug 2013


This project was a great success as the group really engaged with the mosaic throughout the sessions working on together in their own time as a team

The ideas which came up in the initial consultation were; Handshake, Tree of life, Rainbow and Doves of peace

The mosaic is displayed in the entrance lobby of Strome house

The sign was shown at Hastings college as part of the Older peoples day art exhibition in October 2013
