Byzantine Mosaic Workshop

From EUR 102

Become a mosaicist for a day!

Come and discover the art of mosaic. Before or after visiting the UNESCO monuments of Ravenna with its wonderful mosaics, also you can become a mosaicist for a day!
You will have the opportunity to discover the world of mosaic by visiting a real artisan workshop: you will be shown the materials used, the special tools used to cut the tiles, the different execution techniques. You will witness the manual cutting of the tiles using traditional tools: hammer and cutting board.
You can choose among some Byzantine motifs that you can admire in the monuments of the city and use glassy materials produced in the ancient furnaces of Venice.
You will actively participate in all stages of processing.
At the end of the experience you can bring home a souvenir of Ravenna made with your own hands.
