We are with our friends at Tohono Chul Park to present our little trio of planters mosaic project. Learn nipping and fitting skills while working with a variety of glass tiles. Our bases are terracotta and nestle in a cute tray for display. Use for cactus, succulents, office supplies (you know...paper clips, etc...even pens & pencils!) or any thing else you can think of. We design on opposite sides of 3 pots for a total of six sides. A fun way to "get your feet wet" with mosaics! All materials and tools included. Please bring lunch/snacks & beverage
