Sessions are now running regularly on Wednesdays and Thursdays 2-5pm. Saturday sessions will resume in October if it is safe to do so. There will be an introductory session on Saturday 9th 2-5pm for new volunteers. If you would like to attend please email [email protected] as numbers will be limited.
Everyone is welcome to drop by and browse the selection of work on sale, buy mugs and cards and collect a free Map Leaflet. This shows the location of all work around Hackney and makes a good outdoor activity.
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

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.
