Creative Reuse Project: Make Your Own Mosaic!

For our latest upcycling project, we made mosaics in preparation for an upcoming event we are having in collaboration with Make-It Springfield! This free public event will involve using tiles donated from EcoBuilding Bargains to create a mosaic in Springfield that adds art and beauty to the downtown. We are excited to be working under the guidance of Robert Markey, an experienced artist who has completed mosaic installations around the world! This event will take place over 2 days: June 5 and June 12, both from 1pm-5pm. It is recommended for children ages 12 and up, however younger children are invited to participate if they will be closely monitored by an adult. We hope to see you there!
