Mosaics are part of the ancient world from Mesopotamia, the Greek and Roman Mediterranean, and the Byzantine culture.

Mosaic making is deeply absorbing and very relaxing. And deeply satisfying, especially when you master surprisingly quickly the ability to chop marble and stone into exactly the shapes you want! Spend a winter Saturday creating your own unique mosaic panel, using ancient mosaic techniques and delicious marble, limestone, and a touch of Venetian glass.

Workshop Program

What to Bring

Essential materials will be provided. If you have some special ceramic or stone you’d like to use, please bring it. An apron is helpful. Please bring a shallow cardboard box and old towel (to take your panel home in). Bring a bread board or some lightweight flat board, no larger than A3 and which will lie flat in your shallow box. Bring lunch and water or buy at the uni fooderies. We look forward to getting you started on Roman Stone Mosaic!
