About

Mosaic & Mask Making

Romans used mosaic tiles to decorate their floors and walls. Design and create your own mosaic on a coaster.

We will be making Roman cavalry masks and Dracos (the standards carried by the cavalry soldiers), very similar to those worn and used by the Roman soldiers who lived on Hadrians Wall.
