MOSAIC COURSE DAY ONE

Published 29/05/2017

Fresh from Aidan Hart's time with us, Martin Earle who worked with Aidan on the magnificent mosaic projects in Texas and London, is here for the next week in the Icon School teaching how to make Byzantine mosaic.

This is our second course in mosaic, and this time we are hoping to introduce Byzantine mosaic methods and principles.  Martin brings an in-depth knowledge of the way Byzantine mosaic was done, as well as being a trained and accomplished iconographer himself. After hours spent looking in great detail at the methodology he refined his skills while working on mosaics of a massive scale. He is now with us to share some of those insights and begin establishing mosaic as another skill set among the students here.
