The Project is now back and running but in a slightly limited form. We are holding sessions on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons 2-5. At present numbers are limited but if you are interested in joining please send an email and we will contact you when we can open up properly again. Visitors are still welcome though you have to stay outside the building.
WE HAVE KEPT BUSY BY FIXING THE MOSAICS MADE BEFORE AND DURING LOCKDOWN - PLEASE SEE THE PROJECTS PAGES FOR OUR NEW WORKS AT THE ACTON ESTATE, HAGGERSTON AND BAYSTON ROAD, STOKE NEWINGTON. AND NOW MORE DOGS ON HACKNEY DOWNS!
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 take on commissions of all sizes, both public and private, so if you are interested please get in touch - [email protected]
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
More information can be found at
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 normally run every Wednesday 2 - 5 and every Thursday 10.30 - 5.
PLEASE NOTE THE PROJECT IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY. WE HOPE TO BE BACK AND RUNNING SOON - MEANWHILE TAKE CARE.
