About The Event
Mosaics are essentially a piece of artwork created from many smaller parts. Romans often used ceramic and stone in their designs, later looking towards glass to add to the range of colours available to them. They were a complex and beautiful art that often indicated the importance of a place or the wealth of a homeowner. Several examples of mosaic fragments have been discovered in Thanet.
This workshop will look at the purpose and function of mosaics, materials used and how they were created. After learning the basics and handling a few genuine examples of tesserae, you will have your chance to create your own masterpiece to take away with you.
Materials used will be child friendly.
Duration: 2 hours
