Our family of 5 (kids ages 16, 13, 10) had a wonderful experience making mosaics at Studio Cassio. Julianna was patient and informative. We loved learning about the history of Italian mosaic-making, and the hands-on workshop really brought it to life for all of us. Thank you, Julianna and Studio Cassio for a truly unique experience in Rome -one our family will never forget.

This was such a fun & unique experience. I wish I had done it prior to seeing the Vatican or other churches, my appreciation for mosaic art is a lot better! The art & experience was great, the host (Sara) was lovely & patient. What a great change of pace experience

Lovely workshop!

This workshop was such a pleasant surprise. We booked this as a backup after our original plans fell through, but it ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. The instructor was very patient and helpful, and everyone's design turned out surprisingly well -- but at the same time, it showed us how much work and skill goes into making these beautiful artworks. Definitely made us appreciate the mosaics in St. Peter's much more than we would have, and we all had a unique souvenir. Would recommend!

Learned about the restoration of mosaic. Lots of real life examples of the work the workshop does. There were several patterns to choose from. Instructions were clear and precise. Lots of help if needed. And I came home with a mosaic that I like. The class inspired me to look for mosaic workshops at home.

If you’re thinking of booking this experience, do it. It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon. The hosts are experts in this field and provide guidance and suggestions as you progress through your mosaic. There are many designs and colors to choose from for your mosaic so whatever you produce will be entirely unique.

This experience was truly very cool! The instructor Juliana was fantastic, patient and so knowledgeable. The products of our efforts were far better than expected and we learned so much about the history of mosaics and the restoration efforts undertaken by this studio. Thank you for a great time!!

What an amazing experience! Such a treat to learn about the art of mosaics in a studio that’s so prominent in the field. The teacher was fantastic and the workshop was very accessible to all levels of experience or artistic talent. It was mellow and fun. They played music and we talked throughout. Really great way to spend the afternoon. I will always remember it! Highly, highly recommend!

Sarah was a wonderful teacher and both my children (12 and 15 year old) loved it. It was a great thing to do after touring St. Peters with all the mosaics.

I will do it again

This class was amazing. I am an art history lecturer who likes to focus on process. The young women in the studio are all full of very pertinent information about Roman Mosaics, their history, context and restoration. There were 3 of us in the class and I believe we hung onto every word of the instructors. The process was challenging but completely doable. We left the studio happy and buoyed by our experience with our creations in hand. I will take this class again and try a more complex design the next time I am in Rome. When I teach the art of the ancient world again the lectures on Roman Mosaics will be more enhanced as a result of this class.

This mosaic workshop was the perfect way to spend 2 hours doing something different than a walking tour of Rome. It was fun and informative. The instructors were delightful and gave us an insight to the mosaic process and history. Everyone completed a small mosaic to take home.

It was a wonderful experience. I would do it again and highly recommend it to others. All the ladies were knowledgeable and very informative about their craft. The music was great and the atmosphere was inviting. My friend was visually impaired and they assisted her in completing a project. She was so excited and grateful. Excellent experience.

Taking this class was an excellent choice. I learned so much about the history and making of mosaics and as a result, it enhanced my appreciation of the many and gorgeous mosaics one sees all over Rome. It was a great class. And I ended up with a small mosaic which I made myself! Can't recommend it highly enough.
