Creating Mosaics like Gaudí
You will learn the basics of the technique in 2, 3 … hours, learn to handle tools, choose your design and work out your first masterpiece of trencadis – mosaic: a coaster, a place mat, a mirror, a photo frame, an elephant or other object.
This workshop will enable your customers to experience the Gaudi spirit in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere tutored by one of our artesan masters.
The customer should take into account that the artwork produced at the end of the workshop will have to be grouted by staff. Usually, the artwork is left in the workshop and picked up later in the afternoon or the next morning if the workshop had taken place in the afternoon.
