At the Interior Design Show last month I caught up with my friend, the supremely talented Karen Johnston (Mosaicworks). She’ll be in Toronto this coming weekend to give a mosaic workshop at Artscape Youngplace (180 Shaw Street, Rm 107). The class runs Saturday (10 – 3:30 pm) and Sunday (10 – 12 pm) for $130 (cost includes supplies and use of tools but not lunch, there’s a great little cafe on site). So if you’ve been itching to get crafty this is a great opportunity to wake up your creativity. Karen employs anything and everything in her work from common pencils to plumbers chain, glass and tile; surf through her website to get inspired.
