"We are mosaics. Pieces of light, love, history, stars....Glued together with magic and music and words," — Anita Krizzman
This quote is a favorite and it is used on my mosaic workshop flyers. Several times a year I will conduct weekend workshops for groups ranging in size from 8-20 depending on our space and needs. Sometimes I will collaborate with a therapist and other times with a school or friend group. Regardless of the group or purpose we come together to share in a very ancient need to create and to put things together.
Personally, I am always in awe of seeing all of these broken fragments before me and then watching them, through my hands and heart, come together into something beautiful and whole. When I do a workshop, the process is repeated through the hands of all the participants and it is a great thing to see. We all start out with all the same materials, yet every mosaic ends up very different since we bring our differences to the table yet in a spirit of community. Mirrors are an integral part of the process for several reasons — mirrors reflect the truth, mirrors reflect light — something our bodies need and most importantly, they reflect the maker in our brokenness and beauty.
