What you'll do

During your introductory session we will show you several examples of mosaic types and share with you a very brief history of this art form as you enjoy a glass of local wine and some of our family-produced olive oil and bread.

After the historical intro we'll demonstrate the basic cutting techniques and help you select a manageable first design. You'll be guided through the process of laying out your design on wood backing (approximately 250-300 cm2) and then setting your tiles. The process of creating your mosaic can take as long as you want it to, and you are welcome to work over multiple sessions if you wish.

Once your mosaic is complete, you can either choose to grout it yourself or leave it for us to finish off. Please be aware that a mosaic needs 24 hours to fully dry before it can be wrapped for your suitcase. You'll go home with a lovely souvenir uniquely suited to our island and its history, as well as with a skill you might use for a lifetime!

Сразу хочу сказать огромное спасибо Kendre и Loizos за безупречную организацию и полное погружение в творческий процесс. Огромное количество материалов, образцов, помощь и советы, музыка, прохлада утра, вкуснейшее оливковое масло. Мастер класс проходит на прекрасной террасе, в процессе работы Kendra предлагает на выбор различные мозаики, одну из которых вы изготавливаете под чутким руководством . Несмотря на то, что я делал мозаику впервые - все получилось !

what Kendra offers is an exclusive and individual approach! it was my debut in the mosaic, but when I saw the result - I was shocked that I was able to do it :) we made an olive branch, I am delighted with my work! Kendra was open and sociable! explained to me briefly the rules, offered me snacks and coffee. We were engaged on an open terrace with traditional music. All this combined created an amazing atmosphere! It seemed to me that I was visiting friends! I also met the whole family, they are very open people, I think this is an important indicator, so I recommend this impression to Kendra and Loizos. P.S. My Hotel was not far from Kendra's house, but Kendra offered to pick me up and at the end of work took me to the Hotel! It is amazing! Также по русски : я осталась довольна этим мастер классом! Кендра забрала меня из отеля и отвезла обратно ! Интересно, что технически сложно уложиться в один приезд .. но Кендра предлагает варианты как поступить . Мне предложила приехать на следующий день и доделать ( снова привезла-отвезла меня! Я в шоке от такого сервиса!) мне было предложено два варианта изображений , я выбрала Оливковую ветвь, Кендра сказала , что это сложнее , чем второй вариант с морем .. но, несмотря на сложность, я получила огромное удовольствие от работы! Местные фрукты , снеки, Кофе и музыка на открытой террасе - оставили незабываемые впечатления ! Хозяева очень гостеприимные ! Рекомендую !
