Amanda

As an art student I studied Gaudi´s life and works , I can say that I would have liked to know him and would have happily been one of his like-minded apprentices! Mostly his work is found in the Catalan capital of Barcelona. His greatest work and still ongoing is the stunning Sagrada Família. I am particularly fond of Park Güell one of the most impressive and fun public parks in the world as it is full of Gaudis trencadis´ work constructed from waste ceramic pieces. I have a passion for recycling and this has provided me with much inspiration, allowing me to create public works of art. My work can be seen in Benifallet demonstrating the techniques of recycled, trencadis and mosaic. And now I want to share!

What's included

Equipment
Sketch pad pencils. Gloves tile cutters trowels, bucket, cement and tiles.

Where you'll be

The Safereig the wash rooms/ The stone work construction was restored traditionally 2009/2010 using the local ´limestone´. Five wall panels were rendered and left to receive mosaics to convey the how the building was used. What a great project! I was commissioned to do the work by the Benifallet Town council and I thoroughly enjoyed working in this wonderfully ´cool´ environment, throughout the summer of 2011.
