This full-day mosaic workshop, in Cape Town, is a chance to try your hand at an ancient art form. Spend several therapeutic hours arranging colourful tiles on your choice of mirror or bird bath, and take home an eye-catching piece to display in your home or garden.
Throughout history, many cultures have used mosaics to adorn the floors, walls and ceilings of their proudest monuments. From the earliest known examples in Mesopotamia, to the gold leaf embellishments of Byzantium, to Antoni Gaudi's technicolour Parc Güell, in Barcelona - mosaics feature among art history's greatest achievements. Contemporary artists are still breathing new life into the form - and today you're one of them! During the session, you'll each receive two sheets of tiles, thirty neutral background colours, and a mirror or bird bath base. Using the glue and tile cutter provided, you'll create your own bold design - if necessary, taking inspiration from artworks around the room and the advice of your experienced teacher. After six hours, you'll leave with your completed piece - to be displayed proudly, or given as unique and personal gift.
The Full-Day Cape Town Mosaic Craft Workshop will delight those with a little creative flair. An Experience Days voucher makes a thoughtful birthday or Christmas gift.
Mosaic workshops run on regular dates throughout the year.
