We are excited to bring our Award Winning 'Pixel Mosaics Kit' back to the Studio as a personalised workshop.This is where ancient art meets digital art. With expert assistance to ensure the best results, your photograph will be transformed from pixels, to genuine marble mosaic tiles (each corresponding in size and shade). Over the course of the lesson, you will produce your own handmade mosaic portrait. It is not simply a mechanical process, as marble tiles come in a wide range of shades, surfaces and thicknesses, allowing you to create your own interpretation.The result will be a project that is completely personal to you. The workshop is a unique opportunity to make a handmade gift for a loved one.Many well-known designers were involved in the creation of the 'Pixel Mosaics Kit' and it was awarded 'Best design of Lazio' in 2014: that is why this workshop will enable you to bring away an authentic piece of Italian design, with the added benefit of being deeply personal.
Your self-portrait mosaic can become a unique and original souvenir, reminding you of your Roman holiday; emerge and indulge yourself in the traditional handicraft processes; produce your tiny masterpiece of contemporary art and take it home in an exquisite frame.In order to obtain the best ever shades, you need the necessary marble tiles, of different colour and veining and, surface. While carrying out your handicraft, you will be using the white Carrara marble, Bardiglietto gray, imperial Bardiglio gray, Carnico gray and, Amiata black. They all meet just perfectly your requirements to create and display shades and contrasts. This is how you can produce a mosaic out of your photo.
