I've attended the week long mosaic course 5 times now and it never disappoints! Lovely surroundings, great tuition and never-ending encouragement from Peter, plus the most delicious lunches and teas from Alison - such a pleasure to surrender all your worries and commitments for 5 days and escape to another world and let loose your creativity. The atmosphere is so friendly and fun and yet, somehow, at the end of your stay, you have produced something you probably never imagined you could......! I would highly recommend a visit.

As a 'newby' to mosaics I first came to Zantium in 2003 and discovered a medium I love working in. The tuition from Peter and the can do attitude he inspires makes each visit a positive experience and I always leave with a wonderful piece of art I didn't think I could achieve. Everyone can work at their own pace and Peter is great at getting you over any design or execution problems. On top of that that the studio is a lovely place to work in and the outside garden a calming place to go for breaks. Ali's wonderful lunches and homemade cakes just add the finishing touches to a truly lovely week. In addition I have really enjoyed the company of all the interesting people I have met on the courses. Can't wait to go back!

Having never done any mosaics before I visited ZANTIUM about nine years ago and I was delighted with the experience then and all my visits since. The tutorials by Peter, a very patient, kind and helpful man, are full of enthusiasm and encouragement to create an object that you will be very proud of, plus great enjoyment whilst carrying out your 'creation'. With such a wide array of colourful tiles, etc, you will be spoilt for choice.
Lunch time is a must, provided by Ali, freshly prepared, never a disappointment, plus tea, coffee, biscuits and home made cakes, very welcoming breaks during your day to keep your energies up!
