Train in person with Lawrence Payne
Since 2002, Lawrence Payne has been on a journey to discover the real secrets to this craft. He has questioned everything, including his own beliefs about how this work was done. He has made copies of those ancient mosaics, sometimes repeating the same one five or six times, made every mistake possible (and found some new ones!) in a drive to understand those craftsmen. Now he wants to share his fascination with the you.
He started his training under Luciana Notturni at the prestigious Studio Arte Del Mosaico in Ravenna, Italy and ever since then has focused purely on ancient mosaics. He was asked by the British Museum in London in 2008 to run a workshop as part of their exhibition 'Hadrian: Empire and Conflict' in 2008. Since then he has widened his teaching to take in many different areas in Roman mosaics, including one workshop 'Using the Staff & Square in Roman Geometric Mosaics' which is not taught anywhere else in the world.
He never says he invents, he just rediscovers and the thing he loves to hear from his students? Anything starting with 'Why' because if we are asking questions, challenging conventional wisdom (and yes, even our own) then we can discover so much more.
