Meet Mosaic Makers Co!

Katy talked to the Bishop Arts District about founding Mosaic Makers Co in December of 2018. Read more about how they got their start here!


Mosaic Makers Collective is a new retail concept in the renovated 410 Market on Bishop Avenue that touts some of Dallas’ very best female-designed, handmade goods. Mosaic sprouted from a need for an artisan community, and founder Katy Sensenig Schilthuis wanted to create a fun space where artists could get to know Dallas as a whole – and likewise, Dallas could get to know the artists and their work.

BAD: What is your business all about?

Katy: Mosaic Makers Collective is a co-op shop in the Bishop Arts District that sells high-quality paper goods and gifts from 11 local women: all designed in Dallas + handmade. I formed the collective in April of 2018 as a way to form community amongst local, female artisans. I knew there were women around Dallas with incredible talent, and wanted to celebrate that! At Mosaic, the artists make the items and work behind the counter – so the customer gets the chance to actually meet the artist while shopping.


BAD: When did you open your doors?

Katy: May 1, 2018. Just over 7 months ago!

BAD: Why did you choose the Bishop Arts District?

Katy: I’d call the Bishop Arts District the “hip Greenwich Village” of Dallas. Its chalk full of adorable local shops, eateries, and bars – all run by incredibly friendly and passionate people. Their passion spills over into the community, and that in combination with the hipster vibe and a plethora of fun events, keeps locals coming back for more.


BAD: Build a perfect date night in the Bishop Arts District. Where would you go? What would you do?

Katy: I’d start with a cocktail during happy hour at Tribal All Day Cafe, then head to Boulevardier for dinner. My favorite items on the menu? Crawfish beignets + steak frites. Then, I’d head to the Wild Detectives for a fun, quirky backyard show. Finish off the night with a piece of pie from Emporium Pies and viola! Fun night to be had by all.
