January 31st, 2012 Mosaic project day 3
2nd day of the project went really well . I arrived at our usual start time of 3 pm, to find the boys had been hard at work scince 11 am! i guess they are enjoying it :) we have some beautiful things coming along , here is a little taster
Yesterday we started the mosaic project , arriving at our designated work space which smelt suspiciously of cow pat!
.. but in no time at all an enthusiastic bunch of helpers came to help clean up
…they put Mihiri straight to work cutting tiles to size and colour specifications, at this rate she will have one giant arm by next week
They got the hang of it quickly coming up with beautiful designs and started to gather a crowd…
Even the offending cow popped by to undo our good work from earlier …NOOOooo!
After a fantastic and messy first session there was lots to show for it … lets just see if still there in one piece today!
The mosaic project is a creative recyling project we are working on to recycle waste materilas such as -tiles, mirror, glass, bottle tops, badges , anything we can really, to create beautiful things and a chance to earn some money for the older boys living in the Sri Jinananda childrens home.
We will be blogging our progress as we go , if you feel you can contribute in any way , with materials, old furniture, or you want to come and join in please let us know.
Wish us luck !!
