During this 3-hour class you will create two of your own highly decorative and colorful Lisbon mosaic sardines 19 x 4 cm. Sardines are the unofficial mascot of Lisbon, get ready to see them everywhere.
At the beginning of the class, you will decide on your design. Then, you will learn how to cut tiles, how to lay them for the greatest effect, and how to fix and gout.
The used materials will be antique Portuguese and contemporary tiles, mirror or broken dishes. We have a coffee/team break, with famous Portuguese custard tarts “Pateis de Nata”. At the end of the class, your handmade souvenirs will be ready to go home with you.
Why make two? many students create one for themselves, to remember the beauty and magic of Lisbon, and the other for a loved one back home.
Wear comfortable clothing which you don’t mind getting a little messy. My studio is one place in town where you are encouraged to break things, make a mess and get your hands dirty!
