Come learn how to make your own beautiful slab ceramics here at Lavender Marketplace. The first day you will make as many pieces as you would like using textured rollers and molds and cutters! Small jewelry pieces, plates, bowls and perhaps even small planter...? The they will need time to dry and be bisque fired. The second day (usually two to three weeks later) you will return for a few hours to glaze you items. I will then do a glaze firing for you. When they are done you would need to return and pick them up or we can arrange for them to be mailed to you.

Pique Assiette, also known as shard arts, is a very popular folk art style of mosaics. In French, 'Pique assiette' literally means stolen from plates. This kind of art incorporates recycled bits of broken china, porcelain, ceramic tile pottery, stoneware and found objects that are used to make one-of-a-kind and eye-catching art creations.
Some people may assume that pique assiette is a very difficult and laborious work of art to learn. Yes, making pique assiette is an art, but don't let that stop you from creating a beautiful work of art! Even if you have never done any art projects before, you'll really enjoy this workshop because it is simple to learn and anybody can do it.
It is a fabulous way to bring the artistic and creative side out of you. You can get totally lost in it as you learn how to apply the varying types of shards to your pieces, and time seems to just fly by!
Making a mosaic stepping stone does not require you to be an established artist or have had any previous experience with mosaics. All you need to be successful is to gather the materials you need, have a colorful imagination, and let your hands do the magic for you!
