Orsoni Mosaic Courses
Classes in mosaic technique and portraiture
Orsoni, an internationally renowned manufacturer of Venetian glass and gold mosaics since 1888, offers intensive courses in mosaic art for Italian- or English-speaking students. Courses include:
Course fees include equipment and materials, an Orsoni apron, and (for the longer courses) guided tours to Torcello and/or the Basilica di San Marco, which are famous for their glass, gold, and stone mosaics.
Accommodations and meals aren't included in the course fees. If you wish, you can book a room with mosaic decorations in the Domus Orsoni, a bed-and-breakfast operated by the foundry. (Students who reside at the Domus Orsoni have 24-hour access to the mosaic studio, which--like the B&B--is located in the sestiere of Cannaregio, not far from the Venetian Ghetto.)
