Community Mosaic at St Anselm's, Tooting Bec

I have been helping with the creation of a beautiful and very large (7m long) community mosaic for f St Anselm's Church in Tooting Bec, London. This mosaic, overseen by well known British mosaic artist, Tessa Hunkin (from Mosaic Workshop), has been 2 years in the making (from idea to creation) and last week, was finally installed in its location. It was done in reverse on brown paper but in several parts, the glue used to stick the tiles to the paper was not diluted enough which resulted in quiet a few patches of tiles falling off once the mounted mosaic had the paper removed. A group of us have therefore been working on the mosaic in its outdoor location to get it ready for grouting (ungrouted picture above) and it has been really interesting to see how many passers by have stopped to watch and talk as we have been at work. I will post a picture of the completed mosaic in the next week as hopefully it will be ready in time for the centenary mass and celebration on 11th July. If you want to see the mosaic, the church is right next to Tooting Bec Underground station.
