We were very lucky to get into this class. It was only the two of us. Our instructor started the class with the history of mosaic making as well as background information about mosaics, colors, and their mosaic company. She demonstrated how mosaics were made, and the process that we were going to follow to create our own mosaics. This was a great class that allowed us to either follow a pattern or create our own pattern. We spent quite a while working and having Juliana guide and critique us as we progressed through our project. At the end of the class, she allowed it to set before wrapping it so we could continue our sight seeing for the day. We would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in getting hands-on learning about mosaics. You do not have to be an artist to take this class as one of us has an art background while the other one has very little artistic ability.

Ton of fun
Sara and her colleague were wonderfully helpful when we needed it and personable and pleasant. We were offered coffee or drinks and worked all the while without a rush. Dry fun and learning experience
A must if you’re in Rome

Everyone should do this while in Rome!
High point of the trip
I went with my 13 and 11 year old kids to make a mosaic and had a blast. The staff were great; friendly, informative and well...amazing. They took the time to explain things to the kids and made it accessible and fun for them. Definitely a high point in our trip.
