Mosaic with Found Objects

Mosaic with Found Objects

May 1 & 2

In this hands-on workshop, artist Lauralyn Renn will teach you how to decorate a vessel in mosaic using found objects. Choose whether you would like to create a vase or a tray and we will provide the ceramic base and materials for you to embellish it with, such as shells, seaglass, and pearls.

Optional: we encourage you to bring any mementos or small objects that you find meaningful to incorporate into your design. This could include small keepsake items such as keys, coins, dice, broken china fragments, pebbles, and buttons.

Dates: Wednesday, May 1 or Thursday, May 2
Time: 6:30-9:00
Location: Cardinal Gift Shop

This workshop is open to all skill levels. All materials will be provided.

LAURALYN RENN is an artist, designer, beach lover, and collector of shells. Inspired by our ancestors' connection to the earth and the innate desire we have as humans to gather and collect, she combines sculptural techniques with found objects.
Her work focuses on the unique intersection of jewelry and sculpture, using sculpture as a means to express her ideas in both metal and clay. As such, you can see the human hand in all that she creates. By incorporating shells, pebbles, and seaglass in her work, she tells stories of the natural earth and the people that came before us.
Prior to launching her eponymous line Renn New York, she worked in the fashion industry for 11 years designing for brands such as Ralph Lauren, Coach and Cole Haan.
