Mosaics course

Mosaics are sometimes used in garden design, One example is in Villa Jorn, in Luguria, where the artist owner used several techniques to create pots, staircases and pictures.

This course will teach the basic techniques to create
We will examine the history of the medium and the various
techniques used to create these works of art. Different
materials will be examined, such as coloured stone, glass
and marble. The direct and indirect methods will be
examined as well as the "bucatura" technique.
During the first four weeks students will learn basic mosaic
techniques and will study each of these in greater detail
from the fifth week.
