Response from Rainford Design Studio:

Hi Julie, so glad you enjoyed the course. It was so lovely to meet you and your mosaic dragon looks fantastic! Hope to see you again on another course x

I have done a couple of courses with Bernadette, and thoroughly enjoyed them. Both times I have come away with a beautiful piece to decorate my home. I was a complete beginner - Bernadette is a great teacher, with a passion for her subject, and years of knowledge and experience. You'll learn the basics, so you could continue at home. A great day learning a wonderful skill.
