Design and make miniature mosaics using smalti, glass, ceramics and/or fragments of decorated china. Smalti is intensely coloured handmade glass which has an uneven reflective surface perfect for creating jewel like, festive flavoured miniature panels and decorations. Smalti can be used on it’s own or in combination with other materials. You will be taught techniques for cutting and laying the pieces to base materials of either wood, metal, glass or mirror. The pieces you use to create your mosaics will be packed close together so there will be no need for grouting.
