Mosaicing at Belper Goes Green

Last weekend saw the first Belper Goes Green festival organised by Transition Belper. 

It had a great atmosphere and the sun shone for the whole weekend and I spent the weekend working my way around the food stalls, well, it would have felt rude not to try the chocolate brownie from one stall when sampling carrot cake from another! 

Between cake and wild garlic potatoes, I did actually so some work, working with kids from my local community to have a go at making a mosaic heart. The littler ones used safer materials while the older children got to have a go at cutting ceramics (hurray! Got to say 'don't try this at home on mums best crockery!). 

I was quite pleased with the results, and lots of happy children took home a beautifully made piece of art work.  Time to evaluate and see what I can do better next time! 

All ages had a go at making a mosaic heart.
