On December 1, the Artisan Depot in Cowan will host Lynn Driver, noted mosaic artist, to lead a mosaic jewelry workshop. Participants will create abstract mosaic pendants, perfect for gift-giving this holiday season. The workshop begins at 1:00 pm and goes to 3:00 pm. Registration is online at www.franklincoarts.org/workshop-details and pre-registration is required.
Drawing influence from both nature and imagination, Driver creates sculptural mosaics out of stained and recycled glass, repurposed broken dinnerware, smalti, millefiori, filato, and found objects. Her work is a familiar and exciting feature of the Middle Tennessee landscape: visitors to the Peabody College campus will recognize her whimsical and welcoming Black Cat, part of Vanderbilt University’s permanent collection. Another of her cats and a pug grace the Monroe J. Carell Children’s Hospital. Driver participated in the gilding of Athena in the Centennial Park Parthenon, and her pieces have been exhibited at Cheekwood Botanical Hall, and at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film. She was awarded a Master Artist/Apprentice Program Grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission in 2012. Most recently, she led the rehabilitation of Dragon Park in Nashville.
The Artisan Depot is the gallery and gift shop of the Franklin County Arts Guild and is located at 204 Cumberland Street E in Cowan, Tennessee. Questions? Call workshop coordinator Kim Phillips at 615-829-0772.
