Calder Community Mosaic: Fabrication

On 29, Nov 2017 | In Make, News, Place, Project, Space | By Admin

Here is a peek behind the scenes at the production of the Calder Community Mosaic. The mosaic mural is made of ~7500 custom-made triangular-shaped stained glass tiles. The ten different colours of tile used in the mosaic were inspired by the Albertan environment. The tiles are laid out in 30cm x 30cm sections. We then photograph each section for the archive, give it a reference number and then carefully pack it, ready for installation in the Community Room at the new Calder Branch Library. There are 120 panels in all that make up the 4.8m x 2.4m mural mosaic!

Installation is scheduled for early December 2017 in time for the Library’s grand opening – we can’t wait!
