I’m very fortunate to have some exceptionally talented friends. One of them, Dionne Ible, is a mosaicist and makes the most fantastic mosaics. When I heard that Dionne was making an Eyes of Nepal mosaic to raise funds for the Esther Benjamin Trust I thought you might be interested to read a little about it and asked Dionne to send me a message to share.

As a mosaicist I have decided to take part in a charity project to make a small mosaic for the new Mosaic Art Charity Project “Eyes of Nepal”. The mosaic will be part of a display in a leading hotel in Kathmandu, where mosaic artists have the opportunity to exhibit their work permanently.
The aim of this project is to raise funds for the Esther Benjamins Trust (www.ebtrust.org.uk) which has a mosaic studio in Nepal providing essential employment for young workers rescued as children by the Trust. (see video at http://www.justgiving.com/EYESOFNEPAL).
The funds from this project will be used for operational and material costs at the Bhairahawa integrated mosaic centre, where deaf school-leavers work alongside trafficking survivors and in support of mosaics that are being made for public display. Their latest project is the creation of a wall mosaic with a message at a school.
I am asking if you could sponsor my mosaic to raise £120 or more which will then go towards a target figure of £12,000 for the Trust.
You can follow my mosaic progress on my page.
