It was the Greeks, in 4th century BC, who raised the mosaic to an art form, with precise geometric patterns and detailed scenes of people and animals. They used ceramic “tesserae” (ceramic and glass pieces made especially for mosaics) and stones. Using small tesserae, sometimes only a few millimeters in size, meant that mosaics could imitate paintings.
In this class you will be making your own stepping stones with small tiles, broken plates, glass pieces, stones and other inclusions to make a unique piece of art for your garden. Learn this fun and relaxing art form and bring your finished work, and skills, home with you!
