I really enjoyed my day making mosaic. I learnt everything to do with the whole process and as I did a larger piece I needed to finish it at home.
We had lots of support and encouragement. We were actively encouraged to mix adhesive so we knew the correct consistency and allowed to take some powders and glass home to complete the piece. Emailed instructions and supplier information sent afterwards so no excuse not to complete my project.
Thank you Kate.
I really enjoyed this course, the second I’ve taken with Kate. The studio is well equipped with all you need and features lots of Kate’s inspiring mosaic work.
Kate is a natural teacher, very calm and friendly with a wealth of knowledge . There was also lots of coffee and cake. Highly recommended!
