About the Course

One day workshop, for complete beginners, no experience in geometry needed.
No mosaics are made in this workshop, instead you learn how to look at a geometric pattern from a Roman mosaic and then recreate it on paper. You learn to decipher the original, to break it down into pattern and geometry (these are two different things) and then to redraw it to the size you want. This is a completely unique system that I have developed over 16 years of looking these types of mosaics. You don't need any experience at all in geometry or maths, it is all explained in a very straight forward manner.
The drawings you produce are not just pretty pictures, they are accurate enough to make a mosaic from. I will show you how to avoid the mistakes and how to apply the system to patterns however complicated. You just need paper, pens and a compass.
