Mosaics are the art of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces of colour. The Romans used glass, stone, and other materials to create beautiful floor art; the Greeks created beautiful pebble mosaics; and even the early Christians had a go, creating mosaics on walls and ceilings!

Now, thanks to award winning and internationally acclaimed pavement artists Urban Canvas, you can have a go too!

Using specially made mosaic tile markers and an ancient colour palette replicating colours used by the Greek and Roman craftsmen, this is a workshop for all the family creating beautiful floor mosaics; ideal for historical events, Roman festivals, museums and regeneration projects.

What an event we had at Castleford this weekend!
Please do pass on our thanks to the Urban Canvas team, they were absolutely exceptional! The children (and some adults!) loved interacting, painting the giant floor mosaic and Catherine & Philip made the experience even better with their enthusiasm and friendly welcoming to the activity – we even had to extend the mosaic it was so well received! They honestly did a fantastic job especially in the scorching weather conditions.

Urban Canvas made a particular impression.  They are such nice people, worked really well with the crowd and the piece that they created from our mosaics was so right for the event.
