A mosaic is a special form of art that uses small objects to create larger pictures. When these different coloured and sized pieces are carefully placed next to one another, they can create interesting geometric shapes or even pictures.
The Ancient Greeks were the first to use this technique and they would often create mosaics to be used for floors in ancient buildings. Inspired by the floor mosaic in the Monastery, in this session children will learn about the history of mosaics, how they were created and will have the chance to make their own!
Please note: this event is listed in our Spring/Summer programme as taking place on Monday 28th May. The activity has been moved to Sunday 27th May due to the Bank Holiday building closure.
No need to be bored during half term break. We have lots of activities on offer from 1-3pm throughout the week for the whole family to enjoy.
