Putting the pieces together in Bournemouth
Mindful Mosaics is a wonderful group in Bournemouth who are dedicated to using the art of mosaic for the development of mental health and well-being. It offers people the chance to engage with the arts, while also bringing people and communities together.
An inter-generational project made up of people from all walks of life came together to create unique mosaics using salvaged, found and recycled materials. The project provided weekly group activities to explore the environmental impact of waste disposal, whilst exploring ideas around what is available to create meaningful art using repurposed and recycled mosaic materials in a responsible way.
By using materials that had been found and salvaged, the local environment around Bournemouth was improved. There was also an enhanced sense of community, with the project sparking a lot of interest around what was being created. The completed artworks by the group created are completely unique and rather beautiful.
