The ancient though highly accessible art of mosaic is currently undergoing a revival, both as a versatile craft and as a decorative feature in contemporary design. Appealing to beginners and experienced mosaic artists alike, the Weekend Series: Mosaics features indoor and outdoor projects using a wide range of styles, materials and techniques that can be completed over a weekend. Written with infectious enthusiasm by a leading authority on the subject, this exciting book offers clear instruction and step-by-step photographs and drawings, along with templates for many of the designs. The 'Getting Started' chapter provides a detailed introduction to the equipment required, the materials available, cutting and mosaic techniques, and a useful glossary of terms. This allows the beginner - and those with more experience - to get to grips with the techniques and materials and to complete one of the many beautiful mosaics featured in the 'Projects' section in just a few days.
