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.
