New playlist on the Youtube channel

December 16, 2015

I’ve created a playlist on my Youtube channel so all the mosaics concerning the ‘Roman mosaics in miniature’ kits are now in one place.  There are the videos on each kit there is one on cutting the tesserae down to 5mm. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLku2S5ge3WLwpqpRFXt_xKga-Ziv2kCOp

These kits are now all available through Hobby Island, http://www.hobby-island.co.uk/mosaic-kits/Mosaic-projects/roman-kits

Free online course in the Borderline Rule in Roman mosaics

August 29, 2015

Now out, a free online course which explains what the Borderline Rules is and why Roman mosaics have them.
There’s no charge, and it will only take about 30 minutes to go through, just sign up for the newsletter and you can get access straight away. I’m putting this one out so people can understand how important these Rules are to making what can be correctly termed a ‘Roman’ mosaic.  http://yescourse.com/store/the-rules-in-roman-mosaics-borderline/

Back at work!

August 15, 2015

I’m back from my short break now so will be posting again. I’m using this blog site while I decide what to do with the websites etc. The main part of what I do now is around the online courses as I can reach many more people and the shop side was taking up more time than I had. I’m working on the Teaching courses and there will be the Working with Stone course up soon. This will be another free course. http://yescourse.com/academy/roman-mosaic-workshops/
