On Friday 12th – Sunday 14th June 2009 a Weekend mosaic workshop was held at the Ammerdown Centre, Radstock, near Bath.
The course was introduced with a presentation of historical and contemporary mosaics. Inspiration for design was aided by a tour around the beautiful grounds and gardens of Ammerdown.
The course allowed the participants (most of whom were beginners)to understand and put into practice the basic methods of mosaic making.
The students were encouraged to develop their own ideas whilst lots of individual advice, demonstration and support was given. Direct and indirect methods were used.
Mosaic tessarae , stained glass coloured mirror and milliefiori were used.
Here are pictures of the students work.
