The Romans and Byzantines were renowned mosaic makers in the Opus Tessellatum technique. This is the use of tesserae, small cubes of marble, stone, glass, or ceramic applied to a surface to create designs.
In this one-day workshop in the Ashton Park Art Shed, you will choose from a range of Roman designs and learn to cut stone/ceramic tiles to make a small mosaic panel you can take home.
