“A Catfish Fish Named Waffles”: East Falls Community Mosaic Project
Looking for a something creative and fun to do in East Falls? Want to add a little sparkle to your life and your neighborhood? Tile Artist and Instructor, Trish Metzner, will teach the basic process of making a mosaic from start to finish. The pieces will be installed in a school of community-made mosaic fish surrounding the main sculpture, a 4ft tall Catfish named Waffles. The purpose of this community-engaged mosaic art project is to beautify the East Falls commercial corridor and showcase the originality of East Fallsers. The class is a great opportunity to learn mosaic, get involved in the local creative arts scene, and contribute something meaningful to the neighborhood. Consider booking a group class with your friends or colleagues. Businesses or individuals who contribute $800 or more to the Tile Mile Project will have their name featured on a handmade donor recognition plaque.
Parents must register and participate with minors under the age of 16. This activity is not recommended for children. A separate children’s workshop will take place at the Farmers Market on Saturday, July 13th.
