Mosaic Workshop with Aidan Byrne
The process of making mosaics can be described as practical mindfulness. The concentration required to cut, shape and arrange the tiles doesn’t allow for much idle thought. The jigsaw like creation process involved stimulates a lot of right brain activity. Students instinctively learn to observe negative space (the shape created in the empty space around an object). This type of observation is constantly in use to understand what needs to be cut away in order to be left with the right shape to fit into the space in the mosaic composition. This type of activity tends to capture the imagination of all involved and the prospect of working out the composition in different tesserae shapes, sizes and colours is very exciting.
Aidan’s workshops are very professionally run whilst being light-hearted, the atmosphere is friendly and easy-going.
The cost of the course is €100; all materials are included.
