Mosaic Restoration Workshop (5 days)

Mosaic Restoration School

restoration(coming soon)

Luciana Notturni, founder of the Mosaic Art School, has been teaching Mosaic Restoration for more than 20 years at the “Scuola Nazionale del Restauro“, that was the most important institution of the world (unfortunately it was closed a few years ago for lack of fundings).

After a long preparation, Luciana has finally arranged this intensive class, where in 5 days the participants learn the rescue techniques for the conservation and stabilization of mosaics.

DSC01686-bis

It is probably the first course of its kind ever offered in the world.

The workshop is intended for CONTEMPORARY MOSAIC ONLY, since the conservation of ancient artworks is committed exclusively into the hands of qualified personnel.

The preservation of a contemporary work does not depend on age, but on other factors such as materials, technique used, and the exposure condition and its use (artifacts, paintings, flooring, sculptures, street furniture , architecture, etc).

DURATION: 5 days. It can be extended 5 more days, with additional cost. Contact us for more info.

LANGUAGE: English

MOSAIC TOUR:  visit to a real restoration site, if available.
