Starting from a brief explanation of the evolution of the art, you will then explore materials and techniques, try yourself the exciting hand cut technique of creating marble tesserae, choose and copy your design and then enjoy mosaic making. Through our fun colorful journey of mosaic making, under guided, professional instruction, you will create a mosaic inspired by Greek motives and forms. We provide you the tesserae (tiles), made of natural Greek marble cut by hand, as well as special mix of mortars and the final support. During the break you will enjoy Greek hospitality tasting local beverages and snacks.
I am a Mosaics’ conservator who studied the art and the conservation of Mosaics in Ravenna, Italy, the city where the heartbeat of the art keeps beating from the roman times till today! Over the last twenty years I have lived in different countries of Europe, Asia, and Africa, working in non-formal education, and in restoration of archaeological sites. I've founded with Marina Kasimi 13 mosaic studio, an art space in Athens, reflecting everyday on Mosaic in modern and innovative ways. Marina Kasimi is an interior designer, with great experience in conceptual development, space planning and executing designs, who over the years has coordinated and managed many visual art projects. For the last ten years she is expanding her vision in design through the mosaic’s contemporary world. Her mosaics have been exhibited in Greece and in Europe.
