Mosaic Birdbaths at Gardenology

Gardenology is now offering Mosaic Birdbath workshops. Our workshops are 2 hours in length and are a fun way to learn the basics of mosaics with the added bonus of taking home a unique piece of art for your garden or a gift for a loved one. Workshops are small so that the instructor can give each attendee loads of hands on instruction.

We can also create a custom birdbath using your mosaic pieces such as china, charms, jewelry, buttons, marbles, etc.

We suggest thinking in themes when deciding what items to bring to the workshop for your mosaic birdbath. Theme possibilities might include ballet for the ballerina, tea for the tea lover, birds for your friendly birder, dogs and cats for the pet lover, etc. you get the idea that the options are endless. The birdbath featured in this blog has an Irish theme with a photo of grandma who is of Irish descent along with pieces of her china, buttons from clothing and a shiny horseshoe with a clover inset. Isn't it great fun?

Personalize your birdbath by using a cherished family photo of a parent, grandparent, child, etc. Just bring a photo copy or a computer generated laser print of the photo to our shoppe (2 inch x 2 inch in size) featuring a person or pet. Do not bring originals as they are just to precious to trim to size. We will make a soldered piece to incorporate into your birdbath. Again, themes like memorials, wedding, birthdays, new baby, anniversary, graduation, pets, etc. are great options.

Call our shoppe for more information and upcoming workshop dates. The mosaic birdbath classes are $85.00 and the custom birdbaths made by our mosaic artists start at $125.00 depending on complexity of design elements.
