‘M’ is for Mosaic! Presented by Hughes Studio in cooperation with Mosaico, this family-friendly workshop offers each participant the opportunity to create their own beautiful 30cm x 30cm mosaic paving stone to take home for indoor or outdoor display. Inspired by the beautiful monumental mosaic The Maid of Abundance on exhibition at the Discovery Centre as well as books and other examples of mosaics to inspire your own design—designs can be simple or complex to suit the participant’s age and ability level—then learn tile cutting, assembling, grouting and polishing techniques to complete your vision! Please note that this workshop will be delivered over two consecutive days to allow adhesive setting time and participants will need to attend both days to complete their mosaic. All materials are supplied.

Like most museums, only a small part of the Powerhouse Museum collection is exhibited
at any one time. About 50,000 objects are stored at Castle Hill in our state-of-the-art storage and preservation facility.
Now you can go behind the scenes of Australia’s largest and most diverse museum. It’s a unique opportunity to discover another side of the Powerhouse Museum and see some of the many objects rarely on display.
