Just want to say how lovely the course was today, Rachel! My daughter Natalie gave it to me as a birthday present and did the course herself. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and love your mosaic art. It’s so wonderful you are sharing your methods and experience with others and spreading the love for mosaic art and the different ways of interpreting it. So inspirational! Thank you so much!
