Had a really lovely morning with Adele learning Mosaics using recycled china, she explained the
process very well and was very helpful and encouraging. I was very pleased with how my first Mosaic
turned out and would love to do another workshop sometime.
We really enjoyed the morning, Adele was very knowledgeable and very passionate about mosaic 👏🏻👏🏻
We came as a family to complete a half day mosiac workshop which we all throughly enjoyed. Great communication beforehand on where to park and pricing. We had a fab morning as part of a holiday in the area.
I thoroughly enjoyed the mosaic workshop.
Adela has a lovely workroom and is incredibly talented with so many amazing pieces to look at. From start to finish, Adela was welcoming and carefully explained the process of forming mosaics. We even had a potted history of artists and their work.
The time flew by and I could have stayed all day! Would recommend to anyone.
Thank you for such a great morning.
Adela is a very patient and encouraging tutor with a passion for mosaics that inspires participants to explore their creativity. She has a lovely relaxed manner that makes the session fun and really motivates you to continue with mosaics after the course ends.
Adela was great to work with and created a lovely relaxing, fun and enjoyable environment. I enjoyed her introduction to mosaics giving information about different styles and techniques and information about the different materials that can be used. She also had great patience when it came to the practical side giving good instructions to both myself and my son aged 11 years enabling us to take home a professional looking piece of Mosaic art at the end of the session. I really enjoyed her course and would definitely recommend it to anyone to try and I’m looking forward to doing another course on my return to Devon/Cornwall.
I really enjoyed the course on Wednesday 7th October. Adela was very welcoming and the things she has made are really inspiring. I am going to have a go at mosaic making at home and have smashed up some old plates already. I found the course very calming and therapeutic after a difficult year, and I hope to go on another course in the future. Thanks very much for a great morning.
A first for the both of us and and a very enjoyable 3 hours spent with Adela and her talent and enthusiasm. Highly recommended - even with the Covid face visors on, making us all look like space men !! And as Adela promised us, the finished articles, now we have grouted them, look amazing :-)
Thanks again Adela, we will be back.........
The whole course was fabulous. Enjoyed every minute & learnt new techniques. Adela is a fabulous teacher and her studio where we were was an amazing space to be in. Stayed for another class with Adela that day and again, superb 👍😊 Can't recommend highly enough 😊
I’ve just had the most inspiring day learning basis mosaic skills with the incredibly talented Adela.
The studio is adorned with a stunning selection of her work, it’s bright, airy and completely set up to be a covid safe environment while remaining a comfortable and welcoming place to be.
With just myself and one other student there was ample work space and I felt safe and relaxed, a rare feeling during this pandemic!
Adela is a fantastic tutor giving clear instructions and information from her wealth of knowledge and is really approachable when asking questions etc.
You can expect to leave this course feeling relaxed and inspired with a mosaic to take home and a desire to make more!
I can’t recommend this course highly enough and I really hope there is more to come because I’ll definitely be back!!
To say Adela is self taught, she is very knowledgeable about all aspects of mosaics and happily gave advice on tiles, adhesives and bases. Her class was relaxed and fun with plenty of broken crockery to choose from and lots of wooden shapes. Her art work that adorns her studio is fabulous. If you are new to mosaics or have already dabbled I recommend gathering some friends and booking up quickly......
Myself and my friend had a completely amazing afternoon with Adela making mosaic pendants and learning all the techniques. Totally recommend the mosaic pendant and earring workshop making course 100%, can’t wait to make more soon. Thanks for the great experience x
Mum and I had an excellent morning of crafting with Adela. Adela was patient and supportive throughout and the hours just flew by. We both made a bee and a bird and were very pleased with our final result. Looking forward to grouting this weekend (all supplied and demonstrated).
If we return to Devon for a holiday we will definitely complete another course. Thanks Adela.
My family and I had a brilliant morning making mosaics. My 2 children are 11 and 13. They loved it! Getting to break china plates and make them into something beautifully unique was fab. Adela is so knowledgable, friendly and helpful - she made us feel at ease and gave us the confidence to have a go. I would recommend to anyone who would like to do something a bit different.
This is a technique that I have never tried before and loved every minute. Adela was knowledgeable, welcoming & helpful throughout & her studio very cosy & relaxing. It was fascinating to see everyone’s finished pieces at the end of the morning, all completely unique and very pretty. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to try something new. Thank you Adela for a lovely morning.
The time flew during this morning! I had such a lovely time making two mosaics. Adela explained the techniques and tool use really well and gave help and encouragement without being too directional. I will most definitely attend one of her other workshops on offer.
This mosaic day was lots of fun - Adela is super knowledgeable and passionate about mosaicking. This was the second time I have been on one of her courses - I did the full day mosaic course a few months ago and couldn't resist this one too :) I will definitely be back!
Had a lovely day in Adele’s studio. Although I’d never tried this before i came home with an amazing hand made China mosaic. Really relaxed atmosphere, had a good laugh with the other lady on the course. Would definitely recommend it.
A great workshop in a very comfortable relaxed setting. Adela was helpful and inspirational. There was a wonderful array of china pieces offered to help us create just the colours and shapes we wanted - very therapeutic even for beginners.
So enjoyed this course - have never done mosaics before, but Adela explained everything that we needed to know. I was so pleased with the result and am inspired to try something larger. Thoroughly recommended- and the cookies were lovely! Thank you 😊
Everything we needed was supplied, the talk was informative and helpful and there was plenty of time to produce some work. Adele was very welcoming and friendly. The only thing that dropped a mark is that the seating was a bit uncomfy for a 3 hour sit.
Response from Moon Hare Studio:Thank you for your lovely review, I am glad you enjoyed the mosaicking. I am sorry to hear you were uncomfortable on the seat, I had hoped the alternative chair I found had helped. If I had known you were still uncomfortable I would have hunted down a cushion! I hope it won't put you off returning in the future.
Loved the workshop great opportunity to be original and creative I’ll definitely do more. Adele is a lovely encouraging tutor. The workshop was informative with supporting materials and tools.
I really enjoyed the afternoon.
I’ve been wanting to have a go at mosaic for many years.
Adela was very welcoming, knowledgeable & encouraging.
I will recommend this course to other friends.
