The Orsoni Mosaic Foundry in Venice, Italy (which has been around since 1888 when it was founded by Angelo Orsoni) lets you learn from some of the most experienced Mosaic makers in the world with their flexible curriculum of courses and workshops.

Although the workshop itself is over a hundred years old, today it's operated and owned by a company named Trend and nearly everything has been left exactly the way it was when it changed hands. The coolest part about the Orsoni Mosaic Factory, however, is that if you're in Venice you can sign up for full tours of their amazing workspace or even courses to learn from their master mosaic craftsmen that can last weeks. Who wouldn't want to be able to say they trained in mosaic making at Orsoni Mosaic Factory in the 'Floating City?'
