The Hackney Mosaic Project aims to help people with addiction and mental health problems and at the same time to improve neglected corners of the city. We engage volunteers, recruited both from the Hackney recovery Services and the local community, in making large mosaics in Hackney Parks and other locations. We also teach and encourage them to create their own artworks.
The Project does not just make colourful pictures out of broken fragments - it also helps to piece back broken lives, and build a new community by bringing people together around a shared vision.
We are currently showing a selection of our our work at Jo's Gallery at St Joseph's Hospice, Mare Street, and all the pieces are for sale. It is open Mon-Fri, 9-5pm.
We take on commissions of all sizes, both public and private, so if you are interested please get in touch - firstname.lastname@example.org
We also sell individual works from our studio in the Pavilion at Hackney Downs and via our Etsy site - https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/HackneyMosaicProject

We run a Go Fund Me Campaign to raise money to help cover the costs of the project. If you would like to contribute please go to https://www.gofundme.com/hackneymosaicproject. Your help will be much appreciated.
We are located at Hackney Downs Pavilion and anyone who wants to come along and help will be very welcome.
Sessions during the week run every Wednesday 2 - 5 and every Thursday 10.30 - 5.
The next Saturday session will be held at the Haggerston Community Centre 11-1pm when we will be working on the Acton Estate mosaic with local residents.
The next Saturdays at the Downs will be March 30th 2-5 pm
