Mosaic workshop with Helen Miles at the Living Memory Association. 

The Event

Helen Miles trained as a mosaic artist with master craftsmen in Greece who taught using traditional methods with a focus on Byzantine iconography. She later became interested in Roman mosaics and now makes contemporary pieces inspired by ancient designs.

Helen will run three workshops on the art of mosaic making, starting with an introduction to her work and mosaics in Scotland and including a how-to demonstration. In the follow-up workshops, participants will join in making a collective mosaic using materials relevant to the Making Memories project.

The Living Memory Association's Making Memories workshops are suitable for anyone with an interest in craft and making, willing to share stories and try out new craft skills. The group runs every Thursday from 11am to 1pm, with refreshments provided. Support with transport is available where required. If you or someone you know might be interested in signing up to this group please get in touch.
