Artefact Mosaic Studio
For a truly unique gift, why not commission a handmade mosaic in Murano glass – or even better, why not enrol in a course and make it yourself? You’ll be taught by master mosaicists Alessandra di Gennaro and Romuald Mesdagh, who both graduated from the acclaimed Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli – the only mosaicist school in the world of its kind. You’ll learn to use the traditional “martelina” hammer, shaped like a half-moon, to cut your own tesserae with which to create your mosaic. For a memento with a difference, pass on a quick holiday photo and immortalise your visit in a different medium; the masters will help you work from your own pictures to create a beautiful, bespoke artwork.
