What you'll do

The experience starts with a short presentation (15 minutes) using illustrations for introduction to the history of mosaics in Cyprus ( the 4th century BC) and its evolution in the art from the classical and neoclassical ages. Showcase of the Modern mosaic design period and the expressionist approach in mosaic will follow.

After that we will start of with your own small mosaic design (25cm X 25cm approximately) under my assistance and guidance. After finalizing the design of your creation and the selection of the stones ( color and size ) I will then explain how to start the application of the stones one by one to create your own unique mosaic work.

All materials necessary will be provided for by the studio including special protecting clothes and gloves. In the final stage of your creation the grouting method will be explained and taught.

All participants will take their work to finish at home in case time at the studio is not sufficient.
Other things to note
The experience is for individuals that have the ability to use both hands since they will cut and grout the mosaic for their own creation. Special lessons for persons with disabilities are also available upon request. Past experience in art and crafts is not required.

  • Identity verified
I am a Cypriot contemporary mosaicist with a passion for arts & culture. I have worked for over 3 decades in the art world both through arts education as well as as a practicing artist. For me culture acts as one of the most strengthening factors in society it breaks down borders and enriches our life experiences. I obtained a BA in Art& Sociology from Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge in the late 70s and have worked as an Arts and Art History teacher in secondary schools from the 80s up to few years ago. Alongside this in the 90s I founded my mosaic studio 'Mosaic Collective' in Cyprus. My work has been exhibited in public and private galleries and a series of works focusing on the Olympic Posters is permanently exhibited at Spyros Louis gallery Athens. Learning through art is an endless journey that I hope to inspire through my work.
