Mosaic workshop on Karpathos at Art&Walk

Fancy a creative activity during your holiday on Karpathos? Go for a mosaic workshop at Art and Walk on Karpathos! Last holiday we participated in this workshop. Read more about our experience here. Want to book this workshop directly? Then take a look at this page of Art and Walk.

People who know me know: I have no patience and don’t call myself creative, haha! My mother thought it was hilarious that we were going to do a mosaic workshop ;). Still, Vincent and I were very excited when Renate and Thom invited us to this workshop. It was a fun afternoon and the results were great. 100% worth repeating!

Mosaic workshop

Last year, we went hiking on Karpathos with Art&Walk. I find it so beautiful to see how Renate and Thom bring a group of strangers together. That was also the case this time. We were together with a couple from Switzerland, which made us a small but cosy group.

We started the workshop with an explanation from Renate and Thom of what was intended. After that we could start independently, but Renate and Thom both help where necessary. First of all, we had to think about what we wanted to make out of mosaic. They have lots of examples, but you can also look up an idea on Google. Vincent wanted to make our house out of mosaic. In the end, I chose Nemo and Dory from the film Finding Nemo.

Get going!

Next, you can draw the outlines of your design with a pencil on your round, wooden board. Do you find this difficult? No problem, Renate will help you with the sketch. Once you have the sketch, you can start working with the coloured tiles. You can use ‘old’ broken tiles and if these are no longer available, you can smash the tiles yourself. With different tools, you can then ‘cut’ the pieces of tile to give them a better shape. You can also add a little touch to your mosaic work by adding other stones. For example, I used a kind of round, convex stone as bubbles (see photo below). You stick the pieces of tile around your plate with glue.

Once everything is glued, we have to check whether we have forgotten any pieces. Then the glue has to dry for a day. Next, Renate and Thom will ensure that the joints between the tiles are filled. The next day you can collect your work from the mosaic workshop. Our works of art got a nice spot in our house 🙂
