Learning to use the hammer and hardie

Learning to use the hammer and hardie

A photo showing a student on the full day course learning to use the hammer and hardie. This is the comment she wrote when she posted this on Facebook;
‘Three years after getting a hammer and hardie, I have finally learnt how to use it! Thanks to Lawrence at Roman Mosaic Workshops’.
A great result!
First you need to see the hammer and hardie as just another set of tools. Learn to use them as if you were going to do nothing but cut ‘standard’ tesserae. Then when you have cut enough you can look to using them as a specialist tool.
