Places still left for this course in a few weeks, 13th – 14th August.
The course will still follow the format of the geometric manual but with a change in emphasis to align it with the new video course. This will make more sense in looking at the long term learning.
£190.00 per person which includes all materials. More details on it are here
This shows me working on a mosaic to decipher the underlying geometry.

Corinium Museum evening lecture May 29th by Emma Stuart
The Roman mosaics of Corinium include some of the finest to have been unearthed in the country. Over 90 are known from the town and although many remain in situ, most of the important mosaics are now in the Corinium Museum. This lecture highlights some of the wonderful mosaics in the Corinium Museum collections and the sites they came from. The lecture will explore symbolism, pattern and meaning in the mosaics and uncover some of the background to their discovery.
Emma Stuart studied World Religions at the University of Manchester before going on to complete two Masters Degrees in Landscape History and Museum Studies. She currently works as Learning Development Officer at the Corinium Museum.
Cost: £5.65 or £5 to season ticket holders. Booking essential

Photo showing a student on the hammer and hardie workshop yesterday.
Although one day is enough for anyone to learn to use these tools she had some advantages. As a pianist she was used to keeping her arms relaxed and not locking up her wrist which is a real help. By keeping the wrist loose it’s quicker to pick up the technique of using the weight of the hammer to do the cutting.
Needless to say her posture was good, a straight, relaxed back which enables you not only to avoid back strain over long periods but also it is easier to ensure your hammer lines up correctly.
