This hands-on workshop lets participants construct their own living mosaic from beginning to end. BWS staff will teach participants to build their own wooden frames, how to fill it with potting mix, and finish the project by selecting and arranging succulent plants from the Halawa Xeriscape Garden.

Succulent plants are perfect for this type of project as they retain water by storing it in their leaves, stems, and roots, and come in a variety of shapes, textures, sizes and color. Succulents survive on minimal water, thrive in drier climates, are considered low maintenance, and are visually pleasing. By the end of the workshop, each participant will have created an awe-inspiring masterpiece of living, framed art to enjoy and grow at home.
