Frequently Asked Questions
Overall, this activity was very fun and enjoyable. If you don't know much about Gaudi or Barcelona to begin with, you may lea...rn something on the walking tour, otherwise it's a walk with some nice views. Fortunately, we had previous experience working with glass and mosaics, so we were able to manage making our own pieces independently at the studio, but no instruction was given nor was any technique explained given during the "workshop." more
