You will be taken through all the steps involved in creating a square or circular or shell shaped pebble mosaic measuring 45 cm/18 inch square or in diameter. This will weigh about 20 kg (45lb).
Time will be given to discuss materials, methods, tools and techniques as dictated by the interests of the group and time available. The pebble mosaic will then be cast in a special cement and can be collected or sent on at a later date once it has cured.
David has a wealth of knowledge on the history, techniques and practical applications of mosaics from Byzantine to modern-day innovations, which he is happy to share. He is very approachable and will give you all the help you need to make your mosaic.
The workshop is held at Olicana Mosaics in Ilkley. Exact directions will be provided to attendees at the time of booking.
The workshop starts at 10am and ends at 6pm, with breaks for refreshments and lunch during the day.
