Hands-on Activities

In addition to a tour of Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, groups of all ages can schedule a simple hands-on activity. Activities include several tile-making projects modeled after Isaiah Zagar’s techniques.

Tile Fridge Magnets

Decorate a white tile with your own design or message ($3 per person)

Bottle Cap Mini-Mosaic Magnets

Create a tiny mosaic masterpiece inside a bottle cap ($3 per person)

Mosaic Blob Medallions

Assemble an array of materials in grout to create a mini-mosaic you can wear or hang ($5 per person)

Ceramic Doily Tile or Ornament

Glaze your own handmade clay tile or ornament inspired by hundreds throughout PMG ($8 per person)
Tiles will be fired by PMG staff and must be picked up at a later date. Minimum of 10 participants, limited to groups of 20.

If you have already created these projects and are looking for another option, please inquire with our education staff when booking your tour.
