ANNOUNCING: Evelyne Pouget's San Miguel Mosaic Workshops


Hello and thank you for your interest in my upcoming mosaic workshops.

I will be teaching a series of 3-day workshops in my garden, in April and May, focusing on different glass mosaic art pieces for each workshop. For the first workshop, we will be making framed mirrors.

We will meet around an enormous table on my shaded outdoor patio, with as much social distancing possible.

You will learn some simple techniques to make very creative and beautiful mirrors out of glass mosaic. No previous experience necessary.


I will provide all of the multi-color glass tiles, mirrors, frames, grout, and other tools and materials necessary to create a mosaic you will cherish forever.

You will have four different sizes of mirror frames to choose from.

If you have flat ornaments (i.e. old earrings, beads, two-dimensional objects) that you want to include in your artwork, please bring them with you and we will try to incorporate them into your mosaic.

If you already have your own mosaic tools, please bring them.

If you want to wear thin gloves and/or goggles to protect your eyes from glass chards, please bring them to class. I will provide plastic gloves.

I will also have some patterns and designs for you to follow, in case you need some design inspiration.

FEE: US $225 (or 4,700 pesos): 3-day workshop (9 hours). Includes your mosaic mirror. Cash only.

CLASS SIZE: Six people maximum

HOW TO RESERVE YOUR SPACE: At least one week prior to the workshop, send me an email ( and then, by appointment, bring a non-refundable deposit (US $100 or $2100 pesos) to my home -- Stirling Dickinson 16, Centro. I am there most mornings from 10:00 am -- 1:00 pm.


-- April 4, 6, 8: (10:00 am -- 1:00 pm)
-- April 11, 13, 15: (10:00 am -- 1:00 pm)
-- April 25, 27, 29: (10:00 am -- 1:00 pm)
-- May 9, 11, 13: (10:00 am -- 1:00 pm)

Let's have fun, creating together!

See you soon!

Storytelling for the Revolution
Storytelling for the Revolution is Mitch Ditkoff's newly published book about the power of personal storytelling to elevate the conversation on planet Earth. Provocative. Evocative. And fun. YOU have stories to tell. This book will help you tell them.
Storytelling at Work
"The world is not made of atoms," wrote the poet, Muriel Rukeyser. "It's made of stories." Learn how to discover, honor, and unpack the stories of yours that show up "on the job" in Mitch Ditkoff's award-winning 2015 book, Storytelling at Work.

Cultivating Innovation
Your "best and brightest" are the future leaders of your company, but unless they know how to foster a culture of innovation, their impact will be limited. A one-day workshop with us is all they need to begin this journey.
Our Blog Cabin
Our Heart of Innovation blog is a daily destination for movers and shakers everywhere — gleefully produced by our President, Mitch Ditkoff, voted "best innovation blogger in the world" two years running.
Team Innovation
Innovation is a team sport. Brilliant ideas go nowhere unless your people are aligned, collaborative, and team-oriented. That doesn't happen automatically, however. It takes intention, clarity, selflessness, and a new way of operating.
Awake at the Wheel, Book about big ideas If you're looking for a powerful way to jump start innovation and get your creative juices flowing, Awake at the Wheel is for you. Written by Mitch Ditkoff, Co-Founder and President of Idea Champions.
