Create a beautiful mosaic reminiscent of the ancient classics and learn from a Master Mosaicist.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
An artist's paradise. Prepare to be mesmerised by the variety of colours, the shades and the depth that can be created with small chips of stones and glass. There are mosaics and there are extraordinary mosaics.
TELL ME MORE
Giulia Manzoni is a Master Mosaicist.
Classically trained in Italy, she has been working between London and San Francisco. Now based in London, Giulia has collaborated on projects from the floor restoration of the Victoria and Albert Museum to several bespoke mosaic projects. She works regularly with architects to create mosaics for walls and pools, inspired by ancient Greek or Roman designs. As well as designing her own collection of strikingly modern products using marble fragments.
The next time you walk across a museum or find yourself contemplating in a church, look down at the floors beneath your feet and wonder. These are works of art made with love by artisans who for the last four thousand years have designed everything from advertising to great religious works, just by using little stones.
THE ALL IMPORTANT DETAILS
This full-day experience is to gain an insight into the stones. Learn about the tools and materials before you set about making your own piece of art, to take home with you. This class is for complete beginners, and the initial design will be provided by Giulia for you to fill and follow. You can’t build Pompeii overnight, it takes a bit of practice, but your 15cm x 15cm will seem just as challenging. It will also make you think more about those areas of a building you might be inclined to take for granted.
Location is Cockpit Arts in Holborn from 10am - 6pm. The class happens once to twice a month on a weekend.
