For mosaics - of any size in England

Any suggestions - I thought of going to charity shops and buying cheap pottery - but knowing my luck I'd break up a priceless vase Cheesy

thanks xxx

I don't live in England, so I am not sure if this will work. But if your local schools have any sort of art or pottery classes, you might ask them for their leftovers/broken items. Also, if there are any local pottery studios, you could go to them as well.The pottery studio near where I live tosses items that aren't picked up after two weeks.

I will happily do personal swaps for beads, buttons, and fat quarters!

I'd do the thrift shops...and buy the really over-patterned pieces that when you break them still have lots of design and color...but I know what you mean, my luck it would be some Ming Dynasty vase I destoyed!!!

I don't know if this helps, but the dollar store normally has ceramic pots, and that way, you would know that you were not destroying a priceless vase or something.

I love personal swaps! I knit and make jewelry mostly, but do a few other crafts as well. PM me. =)

Talk to your local thrift shop . they often get broken plates and stuff . I talked to mine and they said i could bring a box by and they would put broken plates in it for me.

Go to your local school and get some from their pottery room. I took pottery in highschool and we threw away a ton of broken pottery. Im sure they would be glad to give you some.
