Lindsay: "Emma was excellent with the right blend of encouragement/approval. Time flew past and with some expert help at the end I had a mosaic I was delighted with. I didn't realise mosaics could be so beautiful, Emma is incredibly talented and very good at steering you towards the best decisions. I would highly recommend this course".
Alison: "I found the whole day totally enjoyable and absorbing. I would love to make something larger. Your instruction was clear and helpful and I am delighted with the result. Thank you for a terrific workshop!"
Marian: "I really enjoyed creating something pretty out of broken china - the mosaic preserves that unknown tale... the colours of tiles you have available gets the imagination going! I loved your beautiful mosaics and your decision to focus on endangered species to increase awareness of their plight. This takes mosaicing to another level. There was nothing I didn't enjoy!
Alice: "I thought the workshop was fab - you have a lovely teaching style and it’s made me inquisitive to learn more - I'll be back!!"
Jan: "The tuition was excellent and I really appreciated the individual time you spent with me. You were never intrusive and there was a lovely, friendly atmosphere"
