Ancient Craft: Mosaic Making Workshop
Saturday 4 August, 10am-4pm
Visual Arts Studio
£50 (£40 concessions, £15 under 16s)
Suitable for ages 12+
In this mosaic workshop for beginners, Karen Frosdick will take you through the process of creating a wall plaque, trivet or set of four coasters to take home. After a brief introduction to mosaic tiling, techniques and designing, you will learn how to cut and shape the tiles, as well as learning about grouting and how its colour can affect the colour of your mosaic piece. All materials will be provided.
Ancient Craft classes are run by craftspeople who undertake experimental archaeological work to try and understand how objects were made and used in the past.
Please note before booking that the date of this workshop is different to that stated in our April – August 2018 brochure.
