Colleoni Glass Makers in MuranoThis famous glass factory has been setting itself apart for many years. While many of its neighbours stay true to the conventions and traditions of the Murano way, the Colleoni factory chooses to innovate and has become the heart of an artisan village on Murano!
Mosaic WorkshopSome of the most spectacular examples in Venice are the Basilica of San Marco and the Church of San Donato. This small workshop will allow you to use different pieces of glass, called “tessere” and several models of murrine “millefiori” to create your own personalized item to take home!
Beads WorkshopBefore starting the practical part, you will be given a brief history of the origins of the glass and then an illustration of the processes and equipment used. After trying your hand at some tasks set by your instructor, you can then create a unique and original set of glass beads for yourself!
