Denny has over 20 years’ experience and teaches beginners mosaic workshops throughout the year at her studio in Starcross, near Exeter. Whether you want to mosaic a table, mirror or create a piece of original mosaic wall art, Denny can teach you the necessary skills.
Classes are small, relaxing, and fun with all tools, a wide choice of materials as well as good notes to take away included. Tea, coffee and homemade cake in ample supply are also provided throughout the day!
NB Sadly the workshops have now been suspended until January 2021. At the time of writing I can accommodate a maximum of three participants whilst safely socially distancing. Available dates to be listed shortly.

I went with two friends and had a lovely time. We were all beginners, but each of us had a professional-looking piece of work to take home at the end of the day. I'm no artist, but mine's on the wall and guests have actually asked where I bought it!!
It's a very friendly, relaxed workshop, but at the same time Denny obviously knows her stuff when it comes to mosaics - AND baking; the cake was absolutely yummy and it'd be worth going for that alone :). She helps and advises without taking over, and you just feel really well looked-after in every way.
There's also a huge range of materials available, from tiles, stained glass, mirrors and beads to pebbles and seashells from the local beach, plus all the tools and safety equipment you could need. You can even bring broken crockery that means something to you, and turn it into art.
I can't recommend this course highly enough. It's a really lovely way to spend a day.
This is an excellent workshop, very well taught and which enables you in one session to take home a piece of mosaic work fully finished. Denny's teaching is fun and full. It is lovely to see her own work and then be let loose on an array of lovely tiles and glass. Mosaic combines art and craftmanship but this is an activity for all abilities.
