Smalti - Byzantine
During this workshop you will make a copy of an ancient mosaic from Roman, Byzantine or Medieval period cemented directly onto a substrate. You will learn about working with Mexican Smalti, different ways to cut smalti to complete a small smalti mosaic using the direct method.
You can choose from a number of set designs or create your own. The designs are achievable within the time frame and give scope to a number of smalti cuts and andamento styles.
SUITABLE FOR YOUNG ARTISTS (15+)
Six week course. You then have the option to join Open Studio practice to continue working on your own mosaic projects.
Tools are supplied. Smalti glass kits are available to purchase.
