A perfect memory of Barcelona
We had such a great experience in this class with Angelika, creating our own mosaics in the style of Gaudi, a perfect memory of our time in Barcelona!
I would definitely recommend the experience to anyone.

Fun and Friendly Experience
Aug 2021
My daughter (teen) and I made this one of our first stops on our month stay. We were looking to meet other tourist while having creative fun. Angelika did not disappoint! Although we ended up having a solo session, we had her all to ourselves and free reign to pick the brain of a long time local resident! She gave travel & restaurant suggestions while easily guiding us through creating lovely glass mosaic art. We loved it! Such a cute space tucked away within beautiful historic pedestrian alleyways. Highly recommend this experience and so nice to support a small business during these uncertain times.

Gaudí would be proud!
This was a wonderful experience! So special to make our own mosaic creations while still in Barcelona and inspired by Gaudi. Angelika was so helpful in providing guidance, while still letting you go with your own creativity. She is also very responsible in following all COVID-19 safety protocols, so it was a very comfortable experience. A very fun Barcelona activity for all ages!

Dec 2020 • Friends
I had a great experience with Angelika creating my own Gaudi style mosaic :) All materials were provided and she explained how we could do it, always giving great advice and super friendly! It was a lot of fun being creative and working with the tiles.
I would also like to say that all measures were taken to ensure our safety during the whole experience (wearing masks and gloves, using hand sanitizer, only a small group of 5 and keeping a safe distance from one another).
I highly recommend!

Great relaxing break from touring
We went with our two teenagers, 13 and 16 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The instructor was helpful and kind and provided easy to follow instructions. Two hours was the perfect duration for us. There is an option to use glass or ceramics, and a selection of shapes to chose from including the salamanders of Parc Guell, picture frames, and small trays. We were pleasantly surprised by the end result which will be nice souvenirs for the trip. We were worried because we needed to pick up the art but they were closed later in the day and the subsequent day, but they have an arrangement to leave the finished mosaics in a nearby backers which had late hours. It worked out perfectly.

I was disappointed with this course.
I referred to the teacher that it was the first time I tried this technique, but at the beginning of the lesson they just gave me a few general and inaccurate indications: here is the glass, you cut it and attach it with the glue on to the board... I think an explanation on the techniques of Gaudì would have been appreciated on my behalf to enrich my understanding.
I had to ask what should be the distance from one piece of glass to another and how it should be arranged, how I should make the edges, how to cut the pieces sharply ... I was left to myself and my inexperience. Not even one employee of Mosaiccos helped me at all.
Luckily there was an italian student there ,with the European Erasmus project , who helped me finish the portrait in two hours.

We are very sorry to hear that you haven't been that happy with our experience. We always do a introduction at the beginning of the class to give an insight into Gaudí's work and the mosaic technique. We hope you can understand that it's an experience and no masterclass of Gaudí, for this reason we always give a short introduction to give an general understanding and overview of Gaudí and his work. We are sorry to hear that you had that feeling nobody was there, because we enjoyed talking with you about the different mosaic techniques, also about the mosaic technique that is used in Italy, we also talked about Ravena, the city of mosaic. We remember that one member of my staff was always attending you because we were all working in the same room and during your class you were the only participant. We hope you enjoy your masterpiece.

Family mosaic class
Sep 2019
We booked a 2 hour mosaic class for our family group of six adults. None of us had done anything like this before, so we were a bit apprehensive. We were surprised how much we all enjoyed it - there’s a good choice of things to make, and the teacher was very helpful - it takes longer than you think, and she helped us all out when we were getting close to the end of our class, to make sure we all finished our designs. When we went back the next day to collect our grouted items we were all surprised and pleased with how good they looked. It’s really good value, and you go home with a lovely unique souvenir of your time in Barcelona. I’d really recommend this to anyone considering it.

A highlight of our trip
Highly recommended. We had a fabulous time. It was more difficult than it looks but expert guidance and help was given when required. Totally engrossing - the two hours sped by! We would recommend this to anyone wanting to take a break from the museums and sights of Barcelona. And you will definitely appreciate more the artwork you see. Have a go - you won't be disappointed.
