Learn the beautiful craft of mosaic making

2 hours1,600 rubles per person

Get to know the original, colourful and lively art of mosaic making, one of the most ancient decorative art techniques. Master mosaic artisan Vera Shustova will guide you through all stages of creating a mosaic panel. You will come to know the difference between glass cutters, nippers and hammers, compare different techniques, patterns and designs, and study the fascinating palette of natural stones, smalto and tessera, which will be used to create your own mosaic. Lastly, you will learn the art of cutting and assembling the shiny tiles to create an inspired decorative art piece of your own. The workshop is in Russian. It is recommended to purchase a combined ticket for two workshops for 3,000 rubles, since one session gives a taste of the process, while two sessions allows you to really complete a piece. This experience is available on Thursdays from 7pm to 9pm, by appointment only.
