Tour overview

Byzantine Mosaic ~ Walk & Workshop – Learn everything about the mosaic art, from ancient Greece, Byzantine era to modern times, and grab the opportunity to practice it and create your own mosaic piece in the studio!

We start our day in the very center of Athens, where we get to witness original mosaic motifs and patterns in Byzantine churches and get a sense of how the city has developed as a cross-section of cultures.

We then move to the loft studio for our 2,5-hour mosaic workshop. We have fun choosing our motif, experiencing materials like marble and smalti, and contrasting colors that compose a harmonious mosaic. With the guidance of an art historian and a mosaic craftsman, we learn and practice the fundamentals of the ancient mosaic art and craft techniques.

By the end of our workshop, we have mastered our unique mosaic art piece to keep!

Highlights:

  • Learn everything about the mosaic art
  • Practice the fundamentals of the ancient mosaic art
  • Master your unique mosaic art piece to keep
