Making Mosaics

Mosaic artist Amanda McCrann creates unique and collaborative mosaics that can be seen in parks and schools across Manchester. Amanda shows you and your pupils how she takes inspiration from language, the city, fonts and typography to create text mosaics. Pupils will work in pairs, drawing with tiles to create a group mosaic that represents a school motto, a quote, phrase or saying.
