Overview
Learn the ancient art of mosaic making with an historian of mosaics at a hands-on workshop. Experience a creative and mental exercise that allows you to delve deep into the visual culture of an historic tradition.
What to Expect
Mosaic is an art form that boasts a long history in the Campania region of Italy. Beginning with Greek settlers in the 6th-Century BC and blossoming during the age of the Roman Empire, mosaic was used in decorative and practical modes, from the floral and geometric motifs in private homes to religious imagery in shrines.

The ruins of cities like Pompeii and Herculaneum preserved a rich collection of period mosaics - now housed in Naples’ Archaeological Museum - that pay testament to their importance in daily life.

At this mosaic workshop, held in the private studio of an award-winning mosaic artist, you will get a hands-on approach to learning about mosaic, from a historical and practical perspective.

The setting is in the lovely countryside of Salerno, close to the bucolic Amalfi Coast. Meet your guide at Salerno train station for the short journey to the studio. The workshop begins with an introduction to the medium of mosaics and a talk on its ancient roots.

Sketch a design for your mosaic, choosing the tesserae, or colored tiles that make up mosaic panels. Take inspiration from traditional motifs, your natural surroundings, or follow the guidance of the mosaic artist to create a personal piece.

You will be followed closely through every step of the process, and at the end of the workshop you will have a self-made masterpiece to take back home.
