ARTIST Robert Field is presenting his exhibition A World in Fragments at Salisbury Museum.

Field’s mosaics are based largely on the natural world, the inspiration provided by frost patterns, birds and the elements.

One section of the exhibition is devoted to re-creations and copies of Roman mosaics.

The exhibition opened on Saturday and runs until May 11.

l CHILDREN who would like to learn more about mosaics can take part in two sessions being run over the February half-term holiday.

Discover Mosaics with artist Joanna Dewfall will give youngsters the chance to help create a new mosaic to go on display, inspired by objects from the museum’s collection The event will be run at the museum from 10am to 4pm on February 12 and workshops will also be held at Bemerton Community Centre on February 13 from 10.30am to 12.30pm and 1.30pm to 3.30pm.
