NEW! Islamic Mosaic Course
For Beginners & Improvers
Mondays and Wednesdays Evenings

Time: 18.30 - 21:00
Tutor: Giulia Manzoni
Great opportunity to make an Islamic Mosaic using an original Islamic Geometric Pattern from the Great Mosque of Cordoba, known as ‘La Mezquita’ in spanish or the design used for the tomb towers of Kharraqan at the site in northen Iran, near Qazin, and even more!
The aim of the course is to bring you through the Islamic Geometric world where you will complete your own mosaic size 15x15cm using a range of colours in ceramic and glass tiles. You are welcome to bring in your own material and tiles if you wish.
This course is designed for both beginners and Improvers;
- Improvers wishing to progress their mosaic making skills can learn how to gain precision and speed to cut and shape mosaic tiles.
- If you are a beginner and you never used mosaic nippers before, i would recommend to pick a easier design like the n° 2 or n°3 so you will be able to finish for own piece during the course sessions. But don't be discouraged ! The tutor is present to help you througout the process!
The mosaic will be made through the direct or indirect technique, it’s the student's choice. The direct technique will be done using cement adhesive onto a wood base using tweezers, the indirect gluing the mosaic piece onto paper and flipping it onto wood during the last session of the course.
