Mosaiccos Tours

Mosaiccos
Many come to Barcelona to see the colorful mosaics (trencadís) by famous architect Antoni Gaudí. Far fewer get to learn about the process and create their own works of mosaic art. That’s where Mosaiccos comes in; this studio offers hands-on workshops, as well as a shop selling unique gifts made from broken tile and glass.

The Basics
Designed for all ages, Mosaiccos’ classes and activities allow participants to learn the technique, choose a design, and then craft a handmade mosaic souvenir. Mosaic courses range in length from two hours to 16 hours (for advanced students), while children and families can sign up for a Gaudí Experience class or holiday-themed workshop. Those with a particular interest in Barcelona’s modernisme movement can combine a mosaic workshop with an architectural tour of the city. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • A class at Mosaiccos is a popular activity for families and couples.
  • Most workshops last two hours and include all necessary materials.
  • Wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. 
  • The workshop is wheelchair-accessible. 

How to Get There
Mosaiccos is located in the historic El Born district of Barcelona, within walking distance of much of the old city. The nearest metro station is Jaume I. 

When to Get There
Classes are available Monday to Saturday throughout the year, with shorter hours during the winter months (January to March). Be sure to book your workshop well in advance if you’re visiting during the summer high season (July and August).

What Is a Trencadís?
Trencadís, also known as shardware or pique assiette, is a form of mosaic art created by cementing together bits of broken chinaware and tile. The technique, a Gaudí hallmark, allows artists to cover curved and uneven surfaces, or even rounded shapes. It’s also an excellent way to recycle and reuse materials.
Address: Carrer dels Assaonadors, 10, 08003, Barcelona, Spain
