Feel Like Gaudí – Tour & Workshop
“This was a terrific tour! Really liked the combination of the walking and learning from the very knowledgeable and friendly guide, then using the technique just seen all over the area in the great workshop experience. I love the magnet I made, very inspired by this tour, highly recommend!“, Maura (Harwich, MA, United States)
Join this special Gaudí experience! Learn about modernism and the most famous Catalan architect during a two hours walk. Have your personal hands-on experience in Angelika´s workshop where you will create your own souvenir in Gaudí´s mosaic style.
What is Modernism? Why did it develop? Why does the roof of Casa Batlló look like the back of a dragon? Why was a bat decisive in a battle? We will answer these questions during the walk along the famous Gaudí houses and the old town. Discover more buildings by contemporary architects from that era. Get to know Barcelona’s history and legends while strolling through the maze of little streets in the Born district.
The walk will lead us to Angelika´s workshop where you will learn the technique named “Trencadís”. As you will have discovered during the walk, this technique – using materials such as shards of glass, ceramics or mirrors – can be found on Gaudí´s work. After a short introduction she will show you the basics, handling of tools and how to create your first masterpiece such as a refrigerator magnet or the top of a box.
This experience will leave you with an unforgettable memory and a unique reminder of your trip to Barcelona. Feel like Gaudí during this walk and workshop!
