What you'll do

We will introduce ourselves briefly and then jump right into action. Firstly I will demonstrate on how to make a substrate. Each participant will choose an already made substrate with a Greek Roman pattern already drawn or one can draw their own design. A choice of colours are to be chosen from the variety of natural stones available. Each participant will mix the adhesive will with dry pigments to acquire the correct shade of the colour of stones chosen. The mosaic making will commence using nippers, tweezers, piping bags and if time permits a hammer and Hardie used by the Romans for 2000 years. At 12 noon we will take a break at which point a traditional snack will be served. Continue working on mosaic. Upon completion, each mosaic will be wrapped in bubble wrap to ensure safe travelling. A writeup of all demonstrated in the workshop and the history of mosaics will be sent to each participant by email. All tools, materials and snack are included in the price. Bring your smiles and energy and let's have fun.
