Join this special Gaudí experience! Learn about modernism and the most famous Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudí, during a two hours walking tour. Have your personal hands-on experience in the workshop of MOSAICCOS where you will create your own souvenir in Gaudí´s mosaic style.
Two hours Gaudí and Modernism Walking Tour
What is Modernism and why did it develop? Do you know similar movements in other countries? Why does the roof of Casa Batlló look like the back of a dragon? Our guide, Christian, will answer these questions and more during the walk along the famous Gaudí houses and the old town. Discover additional buildings from that era in the medieval neighbourhood of El Born. Get an introduction to Barcelona’s history and legends while strolling through its labyrinth of little streets.
One hour hands-on workshop in the Gaudí technique
The walk will lead us to Angelika´s workshop where you will learn the revolutionary 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 all of Gaudí´s work. After a short introduction Angelika will show you the basics of the technique, the handling of the tools and how to create your first masterpiece of a trencadís mosaic such as a refrigerator magnet or the top of a box.
This Gaudí experience will leave you with an unforgettable memory and a unique reminder of your trip to Barcelona. Feel like Gaudí during this walking tour and the hands-on workshop.
„Originally from Germany, I have been living in Spain for 27 years. When I came to Barcelona, I was impressed by the works of Miró, Dalí, Picasso, and especially the genius of Antonio Gaudí. This made me specialising in the mosaic art an the Trencadís technique offering also classes in my workshop MOSAICCOS in the Born neighbourhood. In 2016 the Catalan President rewarded me with a master craftsman certificate for my skills and being an ambassador and promotor of cultural traditions.”
