About
MOSAICCOS offers classes for children (>3years), families, adults, youths & seniors. You can create your own souvenir in the mosaic style of Antonio Gaudi! In the "Experience Gaudi," you will learn the revolutionary technique of Gaudi, named “TRENCADIS”. We will show you the basics of this technique, the handling of the tools, and how to create your first masterpiece of trencadis-mosaic: a photo frame, or another object. The " Experiencia Gaudi" will be an unforgettable and unique reminder of Gaudi's Barcelona. The price depends on the object and length of the classes (1 hour: 28€, the standard time is 2 hours: 48€). You will work with ceramic. In case you would like to work with glass, you must pay an extra.Please take into consideration, that MOSAICCOS applies the grouting after you finished your work. If the workshop took place in the afternoon you can pick up your artwork next day, if it is earlier, the same day. Workshop schedules are on our website. Walk-ins are warmly welcome!

The area
Address
Neighborhood: El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.

    Beeing Gaudi
    We booked a 2 hour course. Our 11 year old twins as well as we adults had so much fun to create our own mosaic. Beeing creative like Gaudi was so a new experience and we directly had our Barcelona souvenir. For a Barcelona visit with kids we highly recommend to make your own mosaic at mosaiccos
    Dear Pflip! It was a pleasure for us to showed you the Gaudi tecnique, thank you for your comment and we hope to see you again in Barcelona. Kindly regards, MOSAICCOS TEAM

    A great 2 hours
    Really enjoyed this. Our 10 year old made 2 square mosaics, and my wife and I made 1 larger one each. Thoroughly enjoyable experience and memories to take back home & display or use

    Great for all abilities, fantastic Gaudi experience
    Brilliant class for all abilities. We were a family of 4 (age 10 & 12 children) with no previous experience of making mosaics and we all loved this experience. There were many different templates to choose from and lots of examples to look at. The tutor was great, she quietly offered advice when she thought it was needed. We did a 2hr class and thought it was well worth the money.
    Dear Martin! We are delighted you had a great experience with us! Can't wait to see you again, kind regards, MOSAICCOS team!

    Great for the whole family!
    We had a great time making our own mosaic. It was a great break for the kids (and adults). We took the 2-hr class which was perfect for time. The one hour would have been too short to complete our mosaic pieces. Note that you don't walk out the door with your mosaic, you have to return the next day to pick it up. Friendly, helpful staff and lots of fun.
    Dear RBTGJT ! It is fantastic to hear that your kids had an enjoyable experience at our class! We're thrilled they were pleased with the final results. Thanks for sharing your experience.

My family and I had a great time making our own mosaic souvenirs at the 2 hour course. The staff are amazing and make it easy for complete beginners to create beautiful souvenirs that you can bring home! The experience also gave us a fuller appreciation for Gaudi's art. I would highly recommend making this experience part of your vacation to Barcelona!

Thank you so much!! We had also much fun working with you, we are really happy that you enjoyed it as well. I think the unique artwork you did by yourself is even more precious. I hope you visit us again soon. Best wishes!!

I booked an extensive Mosaic workshop with Angelika and just loved the activity. I decided to work on my company logo and the result was really amazing. Angelika explained to me the basics as well as some very interesting facts about architects like Gaudí who used this technique a lot on his work. She also guided me throughout the progress of my work with best practices on how to cut tiles, which pieces best to use where and helped me with the grouting to finish off my piece of art. As I spent some significant time in her workshop it was also great to get to know her and her staff better. It was a lot of fun!

Mosaiccos is located in the Gothic Quarter and offers a range of fun options for visitors. This can be a fun activity for families, couples or solo travelers. We chose the 4 hour class which was the right amount of time for us. You spend the time creating your work of art and then the staff will grout it for you later and you must return the next day to pick it up. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful and we left feeling like we made new friends. It is a great break from walking around Barcelona and you can create a wonderful souvenir. Shorter sessions are available as well. We highly recommend this activity.

We did the two hour experience and each chose a different style - penguin, elephant, and self-designed tile square. The owner/manager (not exactly sure who she was) gave brusque instructions and then left, while her really sweet visiting friend stayed with us. My 14 year old son felt criticized by the first woman (which he was) and it affected his confidence/experience, which was unfortunate. The experience itself was fun and we were thrilled when we came back the next day to pick up our items. (They grout and dry your mosaic overnight). Our general review is that this is a souvenir that will always be special and remind us of this wonderful city. For this reason, it was worth every penny (38 euros for 2 hours, was about $55 USD). If you are looking for a fun time, this is a great experience. It is not, however, for people looking for an in-depth educational experience in mosaics. You won't learn grouting or firing. You won't get tips on how to treat edges. You won't learn the history of them or get a lot of hands on training. For us, this was fine. I took off a star for the way the woman talked to my son. She wasn't horrible but I do think in a customer oriented business, you should be a lot more positive and encouraging rather than critical.

Dear Virginia, I have just seen some days ago, your review in Tripadvisor, and I have to say that I’m deeply affected. Please accept my apologies for what has happened. On this day I was very busy as I had to go to a meeting and perhaps I was a little bit stressed. Of course it was not my intention to criticize your son, on the contrary, I only wanted to help him and to make things easier to work out his artwork and that’s why I gave him same advises. I’m very sad to hear that your son felt it not like a so good expierence, honestly I had the impression he was very proud of his final artwork. He did it very well and so I told him. At the same time, I take this opportunity to thank you for having had fun in our “Experiencia Gaudí”and having enjoyed it. What we try to transmit in our “Experiencia Gaudí” is, that it isn´t a course, it’s an “experience”. Two hours is too short to explain all the history, technics and grouting of mosaic. In this time period, I try to show the basics and help to work it out the best I can. Best regards from Barcelona to you and your children.

WHAT a lovely experience!!! Even though we were a large group of 15, Angelika and Inma were warm, welcoming and helpful for us all—everyone in the group had a blast and we really appreciate even more the genius of A. Gaudi with the Trencadis method, and all go home with a really lovely memento of our time here in Barcelona. Can’t recommend it highly enough!!

We were so glad that we found this place. It is a bit hard to locate; I would get specific directions before I set out for it. It is owned by a delightful woman who offers as much or as little help as you need to make a mosaic piece. Completing your mosaic makes you feel like a little Gaudi! We were so pleased to have our coasters as permanent memories of Barcelona. I would go in the morning or early afternoon as the pieces need time to dry and be grouted. Also, I would not choose too large a piece as it is easy to be too ambitious.

We had reservations for one morning mid-trip to take a break from sightseeing and do something creative after visiting many of the Gaudi sights for inspiration. Together we did a ceramic picture frame. After a slow start, Angelika helped us with ideas to move the process along. We ended up with a lovely picture frame which now has a photo of us taken at Gaudi's Casa Battlo. It was great fun and we were two adults- no kids!
