Activity: Mosaic Workshop – Gaudí Experience
Discover the Gaudi’s mosaic “Trencadís”
In this 2-hour workshop, we work with Gaudí’s mosaic technique, the “trencadís”.
Each participant makes a trencadís piece. Once finished the workshop, you can take your mosaic work with you back home!
It is a cultural, playful and creative activity for all participants starting the age of 5. It’s an ideal activity to do as a family, in groups or even individuals. We adapt the mosaic course to the characteristics of the group.
All about the mosaic experience
The workshop is an 8 minute walk from the Casa Vicens, Gaudí’s first commissioned building, in the area of Gràcia.
At the beginning of the workshop there is a brief explanation about the art of the mosaic and of Gaudí.
Livia Garreta, our mosaic teacher, is a famous mosaic artist. From her workshop in the neighbourhood of Gràcia she has been restoring, giving classes and creating her work during the past 28 years and dedicated her life to this catalan art, el trencadís.
Livia has also undertaken the restoration of the entrance to the famous Boqueria market which is located by las Ramblas, has participated in the mosaics of the Museum of Catalan Art Nouveau, and many more private works that she has executed for various residences throughout Barcelona.
