Try out an ancient craft and discover your artistic flair. Relaxed, fun and creative, this is an ideal way to have a go at making your first piece of mosaic, with a wetland flower design. You will learn the basics of design, preparation, cutting, sticking and grouting. You will then be able to take away your mosaic and display your new skill. It was the Ancient Greeks who established mosaic as an art form and, although the techniques have existed for 4000 years and been embraced by many cultures, mosaic-making is still popular worldwide today. There’s a world of difference between the patterns of the Greeks, the religious motifs of the Byzantine period, the intricacies of Islamic designs and the playfulness of Gaudi. Mosaics can be environmentally friendly using recycled materials such as glass and crockery and by preserving treasured items in a new mosaic. Mosaics are extremely durable and resilient. They are suitable for indoor and outdoor use, for small or large items. Designs can be ancient, contemporary, abstract, subtle or dramatic - every piece is unique.
