Mosaic making tools and materials

Setting your story in stone, as a legacy for future generations.

Story in Stone is a partnership with mosaic artist Oliver Budd and artist / project leader Carolyn Blake, who have recently delivered an exciting and inclusive community project for Sandy, Potton and Biggleswade. The project was funded by Central Bedfordshire Council as part of a £4 million Market Town project was funded Regeneration Scheme and managed by Sandy Town Council. We have made a mosaic heritage trail through the three Historic Market Towns, bringing their unique histories to life in 15 panels, using the ancient craft of mosaic making.

We ran workshops in 11 schools and housing associations from January - November 2017 involving literally 100's of people. This project ended February 2018.

On 19th March 2018 The Rt. Hon. The Earl Peel GCVO DL unveiled a mosaic dedicated to his great, great uncle Captain Sir William Peel VC KCB, designed by Oliver Budd and made by pupils from Robert Peel Primary School in Sandy, Bedfordshire.
