I highly recommend this beginners' course. I have been twice now and will keep on going back! Lynda is a delightful person, very knowledgeable and generous with that knowledge. She is full of ideas and inspiration and encouragement. Her studio is situated perfectly in her lovely garden, full of light and surrounded by the beautiful pieces she herself has made or is currently working on, so you absorb the creative atmosphere as you work, while Lynda gives you all the materials you need, as well as invaluable tips and guidance throughout the day. It is great fun and therapeutic too - I absolutely love it - thank you so much Lynda!

Response from Artful Mosaics:Thank you Emma. You have created three very different and amazing mosaic pieces over the two courses. I am excited to see what you create next time. Looking forward to another enjoyable day with you.
Really fun, informative day learning so much about the art of making mosaics. Lynda is so informative, has completed over 10 years of mosaic artwork, and has a wealth of knowledge which she willingly imparts to her students. I had fun sharing ideas and learning tidbits of information to enhance my new hobby. She has good ideas for repurposing everyday, discarded items in the home, into useful items mosaic tools and supplies, thus saving the mosaicist unneeded costs. She shared all her supplies so that the student could have a good understanding about the whole mosaic process. We worked in a warm, light filled hobby room in her lovely back garden. I highly recommend Lynda's classes !

Response from Artful Mosaics:Thank you Elizabeth for your lovely comments. I loved your enthusiasm and you were so receptive and produced fantastic results.
I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this course. It was a real tonic. It was exactly what I needed as the last few weeks in my life had been so difficult and I just needed some "me time". I was lost in the making of the mosaics that I forgot my troubles. I felt so refreshed afterwards. Thank you Lynda for giving me such an uplifting experience. Your enthusiasm was contagious.
