They are intended for professional or amateur mosaicists already initiated and constitute a precise and extremely important source of information to become sure of yourself in the construction of your own projects. They consist of a very important part of illustrated theory and practical exercises in drawing and application. These internships are the result of long studies and applications directly transmitted from the experience of Italian masters, from the history of mosaic and new discoveries from contemporary mosaic schools.
45 hours / course - 550 € / course, course book, materials and tools included.

☻ "Liberation" (new!)
This slightly provocative name is the very theme of the workshop: freeing one's practice from the mosaic of the usual rigid and systematic shackles towards a fluid, harmonious, vibrant, light or even explosive treatment. This through learning the fundamental rules of contemporary mosaics and the use of all types of materials.
A liberation in matter for a liberation of a small part of ourselves ...
☻Andamenti first part : the fundamental rules - drawing and application (journey through styles).
☻Andamenti part two : facial lines - drawing and application (not accessible without the “andamenti part one” course)
These two complementary courses are a security for the mosaicist who must find harmonious solutions to fragment his model design. The basic rules of andamenti are an alphabet that one cannot invent or discover alone. They are essential to give the mosaic the sensations of volume, movement and fair harmony in the reading of the work and are the foundations.
☻The interpretation and the opuses
This internship is important for the practice of contemporary mosaic. The way you cut and install the tesserae plays a determining role in the reading of the final work. These characteristics must bring a meaning to the mosaic to mark, amplify, exalt what it represents. It is a language in itself. You have to think that there is perhaps a different and more visually effective way of composing your mosaic than the one we are used to. It is a course of mental openness to other techniques, towards personal expression.
☻ Color theory and application
It is a very rare course because it was born from the experimentation of the last generation of mosaicists from the Spilimbergo school. We apply the theory of color by working on optical mixtures in the form of tessera-pixels with a vibrating surface. It is also of great wealth to understand all the optical phenomena related to color, contrasts, shades, saturation ... applied to the mosaic.
