Description of the byzantine mosaic workshop


This three-session workshop presents the theoretical and practical rules of ancient mosaic making. Participants learn and apply techniques to create magnificent pieces according to the rules of the art - ancient or modern - of mosaic. Smalti are used in the creation of the mosaic. They are Venetian enamels and Mexican, brightly coloured, made from glass paste. They are used in Byzantine mosaics for centuries.


Several techniques are shown and then applied by the participants, according to their preferences and motives they choose, ancient or contemporary. All stages necessary for the creation of a mosaic are presented: choice of material, organization, etc. and preparation of the work surface, cutting techniques and transfer on support permanent (technique developed in Montreal).


The art of mosaic is within the reach of all those who know how to combine patience, creativity and
dexterity. We must also respect the fact that mosaic is a slow art. For those who would not have completed their work by the third session, free workshop hours are included.
