Madaba Institute for Mosaic

Madaba city in Jordan, has a rich culture of mosaic craftwork, largely as a result of the fine Byzantine and Umayyad examples found in its churches.


More details

The ancient art is taught at the Madaba Institute for Mosaic Art and Restoration and this has spawned many workshops in and around Madaba.

All the mosaics are handmade. The stone is cut into very small pieces, a design is drawn and the stones are individually positioned with tweezers. Once all the stones are in place, the gaps are cemented, the surface polished and it is framed. This is painstaking and highly skilled work.
