What you'll do

We will start the experience having a look around in my studio so that my guests can see the technique in detail and find some inspiration and ideas for the kind of work they will want to create with me. Of course the size and difficulty of work we are going to create depends much on how long our workshop will last. Then we will pick together the backgrounds on which we are going to create our mosaic, sand it, colour it, and then proceed with the selection of the materials we will use for our mosaic. I love to underline the fact that all these steps are the same as when I create on my own , just me looking for ideas picking materials, in a very natural flow . I will saw wood pieces and pencils and whatever my guests need to get sawn , then will use the special glue and wood dust that I prepare and that can have so many different uses. The we will start to create our subjects using all sorts of natural and recycled materials you can imagine, from drift woods, to cork, seed, glass, tiny mirrors, twine, pencils, old rusted metal accessories, vintage buttons..At the end of the workshop my guests will have their own piece of art to proudly carry home.
Other things to note
Don't worry if you don't have any previous experience in art and crafts, you will be followed closely in the whole process by me and my assistant (if needed for bigger groups) to create at your best.

My name is Silvia Logi .13 years ago I developed this brand new mosaic technique that I started teaching to other people in the last 5 years. It involves many different materials both natural and recycled and it's the perfect meeting point between art, craft and love&responsability for our planet . Over the past years I have seen how much it is loved all around the world. In fact, thanks mainly to social networks, my works were shared all overso many countries , giving me the opportunity to sell in places that I would never imagine to reach and I got many requests to teach my technique since.

Where you'll be

We will conduct our workshop in my studio which is inside the cloister of "Vecchio Conventino" (Old Convent). It is located just outside the walls of the San Frediano district. Since 1896, when it was founded as a Monastery of Santa Teresa , to 2009 when the structure was restored by Comune di Firenze, it always stood out as a place linked to the history of the Oltrarno and his precious traditions of Florentine artistic craftsmanship.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 8 reviews.

I spent a lovely morning in Silvia’s studio. Her art is beautiful and unique. She offered me many options of things I could make. She is very personable, warm and welcoming. I felt like we were friends when the experience was finished.

Creating with Silvia was definitely unique and fantastic! She is very friendly, knows exactly what materials to use for different ideas, and she truly helps you to enhance your own perspective of art. Had such an enjoyable time at her workshop and get to know her. Highly recommended to everyone! :)

OMG! I had so much fun with Silvia! Besides being a very talented artist in a unique studio facility, Sivia made the experience so special by accommodating my interests. She's a great teacher and very supportive. You don't have to have any artistic or creative skills to have a great time. She also has an endless supply of materials to choose from, all included. I highly recommend this experience with this Florence-born artist. If I lived closer I'd be a regular participant! Thank you Silvia!!
