Learn the art of traditional Turkish mosaic lamp making! First responder families, join us for this two-and-a-half-hour class, where you will learn the techniques of a 500-year ancient craft and practice assembling geometric patterns as well as historic techniques for laying the tiles (tesserae). Using your selected geometric template, you will be guided to create and take home your very own Mosaic Table Lamp. Unleash your inner creativity and discover your full artistic capabilities. You’ll also enjoy sumptuous Turkish tea service, delectable treats and homemade Turkish shortbread cookies.
