Discover the magical world of mosaic art with Gary Drostle.
In these mosaic workshops students will be introduced to the world of mosaics. Working with glass mosaic students will begin by learning how to cut the tesserae in the classical style and then lay into the cement bed to create your own mosaic panel. Students can create their own design or use a selection of prepared designs based on the wildlife of Saba.
Gary's workshops will take place at Lambee's Place.
It will take 6 hours to complete a final product. Each workshop will last 2 hours. Therefore, it will take a total of 3 sessions to make a mosaic.
