Mosaic Workshop ‘Roman Treasures’

In this workshop, we return to the origins of mosaic art: the timeless beauty of ancient Greek and Roman floors are our motifs, which can be copied 1:1 or varied in their color nuances.

Discover the roots of a fascinating craft

We will look at different examples and styles of antique mosaics and make a copy of the template.

You will learn

  • How did the mosaicists work in ancient times?
  • What makes the work so distinctive today?
  • How can I make a copy of a Roman mosaic?
  • How do I prepare my material best?
  • How do I cut small squares and how do I arrange them?
  • What are the andamenti and why are they so important?
  • How do I lay the tesserae without creating any chaos and difficulties?
  • Which tool is suitable for which material?

We work with hammer and hardie, the traditional mosaic tools, in direct technique.

As a student, you will create a mosaic in 20 x 20 cm. For your work you can use marble and smalti from my fundus or bring your own material.
