This is the WordPress site for Roman Mosaic Workshops. I’m Lawrence Payne and I’m a Ravenna trained mosaicist with my workshop in Suffolk, England.
I’m a specialist in Roman and Byzantine mosaics, particularly in the practical techniques in use at the time. As well and making copies myself I teach members of the public and museum staff. I also supply materials and tools form my workshop and online.
This site will contain articles and my own research as it is completed. There are 3 main areas:
HISTORICAL anything pertaining to the original mosaics
TECHNICAL the correct use of adhesives, grouts, modern materials etc
CONTEMPORARY articles written to do with the creation of modern works
