I spent the day on Kate’s one day mosaic workshop and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I have some experience but learned so much with lots of input from Kate when we needed it. She went through various techniques and provided electronic notes for us to refer to for future reference . She gave us the scope to be individually creative and was on hand with her wealth of experience if we got stuck.
She had a good selection of mosaic materials.
I would attend another one without question. Would highly recommend 😊

Kate is a great tutor who gives a calm approach to her teaching, making you instantly feel relaxed. Her studio has a range of materials in a comfortable setting. Her diverse range of courses is suitable for beginners through to the more experienced mosaic artists offering new ideas and ways of working. I would not hesitate to recommend her workshops.

I have just spent a lovely day with Kate at one of her Mosaic workshops. I have always admired her beautiful work so it was a great chance to learn a few of her tricks. There were 7 of us in her workshop and the creativity was flowing and we were buzzing! There were lots of tiles, glass, tesserae etc for us to choose from in a rainbow of colours plus all the cutting equipment so we only had to bring an apron and an idea. I would recommend one of her courses for both beginners and for those like myself with some experience. But be careful, once you’ve tried on you will be addicted like me! Have fun. Wendy

I did this course with my sister and I have to say we had a wonderful time. Kate was great, she was there when you needed her but happy to let you get on with it at the same time. Learnt lots more beyond the basics of mosaicing as the butterfly we made was for the outside. All explained coherently and lots of different materials to choose from. Would highly recommend for a relaxing day out. In a lovely setting too, I will be back.
