I'm a stained glass hobbyist, new to mosaics. Finally off my wish-list and into production! Jane actively encouraged me to work outside my comfort zone and add to my glass crafting capabilities and scope, with expert tuition, skilful guidance, humour... and superb home made/home grown food! A totally rewarding weekend workshop with my daughter, as part of her 40th birthday celebrations. An absolute beginner, she made herself a beautiful and very impressive garden mirror. We both loved the challenge and the experience. Thank you Jane - I'll be back for more!

My friend and I had such a fun time on Jane's one day mosaic course, which was personalised to match our requirements. Jane is very friendly and is generous with both her knowledge and materials. A very wide range of materials to choose from and Jane helped us to choose our designs but still let us loose with our own creative ideas. Lunch was delicious (including vegan options for me). Highly recommended course.

I had a great day! I learned a lot and came away with a lovely mosaic. Jane was a very good teacher and very informative, she even took the trouble to search for material suppliers in my local area to help me get started. She provides lunch and she is a great cook. 10 out of 10, thank you Jane!

I recently attended a one day course with Jane and it was a real eye opener. I had not done any Mosaic work before, but with Jane's instructive encouragement I felt I learnt a lot, not only of the Mosaic practical basics but of the process of transferring an idea into an actual mosaic piece. The day was very enjoyable and the time went all too quickly, although we did have a break to enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by Jane. I am certainly impressed with what can be done with Mosaics and am keen to continue to find out and do more of it.
Many thanks Jane for getting me started.

Well all I can say is I had the most wonderful day making my first piece of Mosaic. Jane is a fabulous teacher, very patient and extremely knowledgeable.
I want to go back and do the 2 day course.

Jane is a fantastic teacher and I thoroughly enjoyed my introduction to mosaic. I have come away with a piece that I am proud to display and would thoroughly recommend the course to others.

Took the workshop along with my mother.. Both of us enjoyed the experience and Jane was wonderful, she has done great job herself with mosaic and is an inspiration to me,

I am so very happy that I chose Jane from all the other teachers. The 2 day course was the most inspiring and has shown me the vast possibilities that mosaic has to offer -and not only in the garden mosaic! I thought my design was simple, but soon realised that as a beginner this was quite difficult. I am happy with my choice though because boundaries were stretched and with the very good supervision and teaching received, the sky is the limit now.

The one day course I took with Jane was wonderful. As a novice, I learned some good foundation skills and now feel I can do some work on my own. I was thrilled with what I was able to accomplish in one day with Jane's instruction and guidance.
Very enjoyable day, great atmosphere and fabulous lunch.
Highly recommend .

I had always wanted to do a mosaic since childhood, am now 57, so wish I had done the workshop much sooner. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and am delighted with what I took home. The setting was lovely and lunch was excellent. I am going to start doing mosaic myself and would like to go back to Jane for another workshop.

I attended a one-day workshop and had a fabulous day. I had absolutely no experience before attending but still managed to produce something I was very pleased with. Jane was extremely patient and inspiring. She was very hospitable and made us all welcome. Not to mention keeping us fed and watered throughout the day! It was great to spend the day with Jane & her pets in her lovely home. The relaxed atmosphere and setting certainly helped put me at my ease. The day flew by and I would definitely attend again. Thanks Jane!

I would recommend this course to beginners and experienced.

I attended Jane's one-day mosaic workshop and had a wonderfully relaxing and productive day! We worked on a glass mosaic picture, only my 2nd mosaic.... Jane helped me every step of the way and i was delighted with the result! A great setting for a course and a fabulous homemade lunch! I would certainly recommend the course of beginners and experienced students.

Last year Jane came to my studio in Pembrokeshire as a guest artist to teach on a workshop week. Jane's precision in glass cutting is amazing and she is a generous teacher and a real inspiration with a brilliant eye for colour and pattern.

Having first seen some of Jane's work at a craft fair, my sister, niece and I were inspired to attended a one-day mosaic workshop at Jane's studio. As none of us had ever done anything like this before, I think we all went feeling slightly nervous - but we needn't have worried! Jane was very welcoming and informative, and gave just the right amount of advice and practical help whilst allowing us to create "masterpieces" which were entirely our own and of which we are very proud! She has also provided some useful follow-up information which will be invaluable when we start on our next pieces at home! (And the lunch was lovely too!!)

I recently attended Jane's one-day mosaic workshop and had a fantastic time. Jane is extremely knowledgeable about her art, and was easily able to explain and pass on her skills. I managed, with her expert guidance, to produce a glass mosaic picture of which I am extremely proud. A lovely lunch was provided as part of the experience. I'm hoping to continue to use my newly acquired skills.

I recently attended a one-day mosaic course at Jane Visick's studio. Not being of an artistic bent I really didn't know what to expect. However Jane was very hospitable and knowledgeable about her subject and I was agreeable surprised with the cockerel plaque I produced. I learnt a lot and am now looking forward to making more mosaics at home. Thanks, Jane.
