Join us in the beautiful Alcatraz Gardens for this hands-on workshop to build your own mosaic tile with instructor Kristi Halva. Kristi has been involved with the arts since her days in high school and has recently studied under the direction of Laurel True, a well-known mosaic artist at the Institute of Mosaic Arts in Oakland California.

This day-long course will begin with a tour of the historic gardens with Parks Conservancy’s program manager Shelagh Fritz to gain inspiration for you to create your own mosaic. With ideas in mind, Kristi will walk through the steps of creating a beautiful piece of art of your own. Please dress for the variable weather of the island--bring water, sunscreen, and a hat-- also please wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty. 

Those who register for this class DO NOT have to buy a ferry ticket; a ticket, as well as lunch and all the materials you need for the workshop is included in the cost of the workshop. Please plan to check in at Pier 33 (Alcatraz Landing) no later than 8:15 am to take the 8:30 am staff boat (map and parking link), class will finish at 2pm, (return ferry schedule here).

Cost: $50
