Birthday party: Patterns made from coloured stones

A birthday party in Augusta Raurica is an unforgettable and exclusive time journey for all. Everyone takes something exclusive home with them and the birthday child also receives a little surprise.

Augusta Raurica Mosaiken 06 Foto Aline Cousin

Mosaics were a favourite form of interior decoration in Roman times. First we'll introduce you to the techniques of mosaic-making and the materials used. Then, after a tour of the original mosaics in the Roman House, we'll try our hand at making our own. Different-coloured ceramic pieces and suitable tools are ready for use. While the newly-created works of art are drying out in their beds of plaster, we'll visit the large, original mosaics in the cellar of the curia - the ancient town hall.
