A community mosaic is an opportunity to bring people together to make a positive difference to their area

Mosaic sign for a housing estate made by the children and mothers. Fifty people were involved in the making of this mosaic.  The whole mosaic is 1.8 x 2m and was commissioned to give the estate an identity and make it a more pleasant place for everyone.    

The theme for the mosaic was inspired by the name of the estate and the history of the area.  The Estate is in a conservation area so the colours of the mosaic were chosen to harmonise with the Victorian tenements.  

On each project on this Estate young people age 14-17 have volunteered to help. This gives them experience of working with younger children and running workshops.  Mums helped out too and came and did their own piece of mosaic alongside their children.

ArtSpokes delivered the project through its Art Director, Sarah Hammond,  assisted by Sue Edkins.  Sarah has been running art workshops on this Estate for five years.
