Antoni Gaudí is a well-known architecture known for using the Trencadís. His work can be found in Park Güell, Casa Batlló, La Pedrera and Sagrada Família.Learn how to use each tool, choose your own design and colors. Create your first mosaic artwork using this technique. You will be able to choose between three different pieces to create: a Gaudi salamander (like the one found in Park Guell), mirror or the FC Barcelona logo.Once you're finished, let your artwork dry so you can later apply grouting. If you do a morning workshop, you can pick up your mosaic in the afternoon (the same day). If you come in the afternoon, you can pick up your artwork the next day (in the morning).
