HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

How many times did you wish you had a self portrait?
That moment has arrived!
I will be waiting in my studio where you will be allowed to create your own mosaic self-portrait.
A full immersion experience into the world of mosaics where you will be the protagonist!
Send me a photo of yourself or the object of your portrait, I will organize your project and help you create it explaining the small things you can do to make your piece unique.
The workshop will last the entire day, you will have the opportunity to experience and learn all of the steps, from preparing the holder to cutting the tiles and then placing them. When you have finished it will be my job to plaster, polish and send you the completed piece (free in Italy, price to be decided for outside).
There will be a lunch break where I will have the pleasure of offering you typical food from the area. We will eat in my shop, so you don't lose your concentration.
Making mosaics makes me happy, and my intention is to convey this passion to you as well.

SOME TIPS

I suggest you wear comfortable clothing, here you will find an apron and all the tools you will need.
If you wish to stay in the area I will be happy to give you directions.

WORKSHOP

A FRAME FOR YOUR MEMORIES

Leonardo, mosaic maker

96

Get a better understanding of mosaics by making a personal object. I'll be waiting in my studio to teach you how to decorate in mosaics a picture frame in which to keep your favorite memories. You will be allowed to chose between two different types of frames and then it will be your choice which colors and techniques to use (ex. Palladiana) to complete your very own piece. I will show you how to cut and place the tiles. The frame will be yours as a reminder of the experience.

WORKSHOP

YOUR SPECIAL MOSAIC

Matteo, mosaic maker

102

What better than your name can identify you? Decorate with a mosaic the initial of your name or of the person you want to give it to. Imagine the letter of your name with a mosaic part in it. You can use it to furnish an old dresser, a shelf, or any other place to bring your personality. In fact in this workshop you can decide the decoration and the color of the tiles. These will be used to fill up with a mosaic the etched space in the wooden letter. Later I'll show you how the marbles, stone-paste and gold leaf tiles are cut. We'll see how to lay the glue down and how to position the tiles to create the decoration of your personal letter. Of course, once the object will be finished, you can bring it back home with you. The only things I ask you is to tell me the chosen letter, so that you can find it ready to be decorated. Moreover you can choose between the blue or dove-grey color to paint the letter yourself. The workshop will last about 2/2.5 hours.

WORKSHOP

THE THOUSAND COLOURS OF MARBLE

Miranda, mosaic maker

48

The experience consists of a full immersion in the life of the company. After the first introduction, Miranda will tell you about all the phases needed in the preparation and processing of colored marble and the enamels used to compose the mosaics. At this point you will be ready to make your own 20x20 cm mosaic tablet, of which you can choose the design and colors among the materials available. There is a short break and snack with local products. At the end of the experience you will be able to take the realized tablet home with you! Miranda's laboratory is just a few minutes away from the charming "ghost" village of Celleno, which is itself worth a visit. Miranda welcomes guests by opening them the doors to an ancient and ever-present profession, in a continuous innovation, day after day.
