About mosaic art
Mosaic is an art form which uses small pieces of materials placed together to create a unified whole. The word mosaic is from the Italian mosaico deriving from the Latin mosaicus and ultimately from the Greek mouseios meaning belonging to the Muses, hence artistic.
Mosaics have developed into a popular craft and art, and are not limited to professionals. Today’s artisans and crafters work with stone, ceramics, shells, art glass, mirror, beads, and even odd items like doll parts, pearls, or photographs.
While ancient mosaics tended to be architectural, modern mosaics are found covering everything from park benches and flowerpots to guitars and bicycles. Items can be as small as an earring or as large as a house. (Source: Wikipedia, Free-Photos från Pixabay)
You can choose workshops for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels ranging from as little as 2.5 hours to week-long affairs with costs starting from €30 per person. During our half day or full day courses students are taught how to cut mosaic tiles, ceramic and glass using specialist tools and will design and make an item (usually a small panel) to take away with them. The full day course covers the same skills and learning but allows students to make a larger item.
Are you ready?
I myself think I am a creative person but unfortunately I am not a patient one. But I also managed to create two pretty stylish mosaic tiles. Are you ready to try? Email me and I will provide you with more information or send email directly to Robin with recommendation from Elwira.
