A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Sue is so welcoming, the venue was excellent. The course was suitable for all ages and levels. Sue provided all of the materials and worksheets along with examples of her work. She was hands on all day illustrating techniques and giving advice on colour choices. In all a lovely relaxed atmosphere, a lovely group of people and a course I would definitely recommend.

Response from Sue Kershaw:

Thank you so much for your kind review, it really was a pleasure meeting you and carry on mosaicing your butterfly was beautiful.

This was an amazing experience provided by Sue Kershaw.

The workshop was informative and really good fun. My friend and I both came away with finished mosaics and as complete novices we were delighted to craft a proper piece of artwork worthy to be hung in our homes.

I'd highly recommend this workshop for anyone wanting to try their hand at crafting a mosaic !

Response from Sue Kershaw:

Thank you so much for such a lovely review. It was a real pleasure meeting you both. I really hope to see you again. Keep at it.

Had such a brilliant day mosaic-ing with Sue.

Really well thought out instruction and all the kit required (including brews!). Sue took the time to ensure everyone understood the techniques involved, answered any questions and ensured everyone was progressing throughout the day. Can't believe how quickly the 6 hours flew by!

Beautiful venue nestled out of the way, with all COVID precautions thought of.

Came away with an amazing keepsake and memories of a lovely day. Would highly recommend this workshop.

We had an excellent day with Sue. I can’t believe where the 6 hours went, I was so engrossed. It was a step out of my normal life, a real treat for a Christmas present. I’ll definitely recommend to friends. I’m so happy with my tile.

Response from Sue Kershaw:

Thank you so much. It was a real pleasure meeting you both. I am really glad you enjoyed the day. Keep mosaicing.

Rachel Hirst - - #33648

I had a lovely day creating a mosaic. Sue gave input and advice on everything from creating the design, cutting tiles, assembling and much more. She has a lovely friendly manner and made me feel welcome in the group. I was really pleased with the final piece I took away and am now raring to have a go by myself.
I would recommend this to anyone!

Helen - - #29502

An amazing day! Sue is a fabulous teacher. She is both friendly and knowledgeable with plenty of suggestions on patterns, materials and colours so that you can relax and have fun. My friend and I had a wonderful experience because of this and we both finished the day with a mosaic to be proud of.
I highly recommend this class whether you are a beginner or an experienced crafter.
Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I had arranged with Sue to carry out the course as a team building day- 23 of us in total. Sue had everything organised and well prepared before we got there and immediately set everyone at ease with her laidback, friendly manner. I would absolutely recommend this course. We had a room of mixed abilities- most of who had not done a mosaic before but everyone enjoyed the day.
Thank you very much Sue.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed today. I can’t believe where the 6 hours went, I was so engrossed. It was a step out of my normal life, a real treat for my birthday present. I’ll definitely recommend to friends. I’m really pleased with my tile.

I received a gift voucher for this course as a Christmas present. It has definitely been the best experience I’ve had from a craft class and a much appreciated gift. It started with a warm welcome and a hot drink, Sue puts you at ease and though her mosaics are outstanding she remains a humble lady. Everything is provided and nothing is too much trouble, she is a natural and patient teacher. I’m not a natural crafter! I enjoy it rather than having natural ability but that didn’t matter as I still managed to produce a mosaic I am proud of. The 6 hours flew by and I hope Sue will provide other courses in the future as I would love to learn more.

I really enjoyed the course and drove back thinking of all the projects I'd like to do! Sue is a great teacher and I felt so relaxed afterwards!

Just wanted to thank you for a fabulous day at your mosaic course. Linda and I enjoyed it so much. It was lovely to meet you, and other attendees. Made for a wonderful day. I can highly recommend your master class. I am delighted with my first mosaic piece with your expert guidance, and I am now looking forwards to creating another.

Thank you Sue for a very well tutored, productive and inspiring day.
The studio is so well equipped and organised, with everything needed to complete the challenge of a mosaic.
Everyone went away with a beautiful unique piece of work plus an information sheet of where to buy mosaic supplies.
Can't wait to start my next piece!

Cheryl Kindness - - #6910

We all came away at the end of the day with a piece of work to be proud of! And I have already started on my next piece
