We will deliver a series of 5 weekly workshops offering you the opportunity to learn traditional skills celebrating Islamic heritage in the form of mosaic making. You will then decorate ceramic pots for the garden ready for the spring. Through the five-week programme of workshops, you will learn historical and practical skills in how mosaics have been used in Islamic Culture and how the Eastern influences are still part of modern contemporary society and architecture today in the UK. For this project we will have an Islamic artist from The Prince's School delivering the workshops on heritage mosaic skills, specialising in traditional mosaic skills, geometry and arabesque. Once you have mastered the traditional skills we then hope to invite you to be part of a large-scale public art project in the future.
