NEMS PinchPals Project with Bonnie Fitzgerald

Workshop Size: Limited to 15 members
Location: Online via Zoom
Cost: Free
Workshop Dates: August 5, August 19, September 9 | Time: 7:00-8:30 pm

Bonnie Fitzgerald of Maverick Mosaics will lead a series of online workshops for a limited number of NEMS members interested in creating mosaics that express what PinchPals (pinched clay figures) stand for: support, compassion, optimism, looking out for others and reinforcing an understanding that “at our core we humans are all the same”.

What’s Involved?

  • Educational workshops
  • Creation of a mosaic
  • Online exhibition


The group will meet 3 times via Zoom, 1.5 hours per meeting. The workshop spans a 4 week period in August/September. (August 5-September 9)

   August 5:  General introduction, educational component (lecture: andamento, materials review)

   August 19: work in progress images, friendly critique, technical questions, conversation (lecture:     articulating inspiration, summoning intuition)

   September 9: reveal finished works, discuss learning, emotional aspect, etc.


  • Size: 12” X 12” is the recommended size. However, the size of your mosaic is your personal choice.
  • Materials: Participants provide materials and supplies
  • Images: Participant provides images of work in progress and final mosaic
  • Ownership: Artists maintain ownership of their artwork
  • Design: 
    To prepare the design for their mosaic, participants will be asked to go the PinchPals website to read about the PinchPals mission, watch the videos and look at the blog entries. Bonnie will  send you support materials for inspiration as well as your very own PinchPal. PinchPals images can be used in the design, but are not required.

Online Exhibition

When the workshops end, Bonnie will promote a virtual exhibition of the mosaics created during the program. The exhibition will be promoted via social media.

I work mainly with glass, I hop that’s okay. I do sculptures in clay, but have not incorporated them into a mosaic, so this will be interesting.
