|Dates:||6 May 2017 - 27 May 2017|
|Time:||10:00 to 16:30|
|Location:||The Prince's School of Traditional Arts, 19-22 Charlotte Road, London EC2A 3SG|
Learn to create mosaics in the expressive style known as emblema vermiculatum. Emblema vermiculatum were traditionally made by the most skilled Roman craftsmen, featuring people, animals and other objects drawing inspiration from famous paintings, theater, and myth. The finished mosaic can be inserted into a floor or hung on a wall as a centerpiece.
Students will get hands-on instruction, before progressing onto a finished piece in ceramic, glass, marble or a combination of materials.
All necessary tools and materials are provided in order to complete a mosaic from a collection of designs. You are welcome to work on your own project but please contact the course tutor beforehand.
