What motivated the founders of your organization to start this business?
As the founder of this business I felt motivated to create an authentic experience for visitors who are inspired by the art of Antonio Gaudí. I offer them an opportunity to learn the Mosaic Technique “El Trencadis” , and create their own memorabilia/souvenir from Barcelona. And also appreciate the work involved in creating his famous masterworks. The other motivation was to offer activities for families and groups which was difficult to find especially for children. This inspired me to set up a fun and creative experience for the whole family (parents and children older than 3 years) which they can enjoy together.
As founder of the business, prior to starting it, I have been an artist for 30 years, specializing in mosaic and sculpture art mainly as a hobby. I also have 20 years experience working in multinational companies, organizing events, meetings and marketing fairs. I had the opportunity to combine both sets of skills and start this business.

What tips can you give that would be useful for a
customer or client of yours to know about Mosaiccos?
The customer should take into account that the artwork produced by the end of the workshop will have to be grouted by staff. Usually, the artwork is left in the workshop and picked up later on in the afternoon or the next morning if the workshop had taken place in the afternoon.
