As a community activist I hope this allows me to speak for the residents that live here. Some time ago I came up with the idea of a community mosaic. Jackie Nash was recommended to me by someone that had been to a workshop. What a surprise, nothing was to much trouble to Jackie for beginners like us; everything was explained, how the piece would work etc. It was without doubt the best workshop we have ever done. We as a community are now busy doing our own mosaic.
Thank you so much Jackie.

I had the best day ever!
Jackie was a brilliant tutor and I came away totally buzzing, exhausted and inspired.
She is obviously very talented herself but she explained everything simply and succinctly. She was very understanding as I was a complete beginner.
I can thoroughly recommend Jackie’s course and will definitely return in the future for more amazing inspirations.
I also thought it was great value for money.
Thank you Jackie I had a fantastic day.

Response from Jackie Nash Art:Hi Di
Absolutely loved the workshop and would recommend to anyone whether a beginner or having some knowledge. With the help of Jackie I made a sunflower mosaic. The choice of materials are amazing and I can’t wait to book another workshop with her.
The home made lemon drizzle cake was lovely, in fact during the course of the day it was so good I had two slices!

Response from Jackie Nash Art:Thank you so much for your lovely review. Always a pleasure to receive feedback about my course. Keep In touch. Jackie
I requested this course as a birthday present and was delighted with it. Jackie’s positive, encouraging approach and wealth of expertise was inspiring and she gave excellent advice which made my project achievable. Her generosity, kindness and the calm atmosphere she created meant that I learnt lots and was pleased with my finished owl mosaic! I would thoroughly recommend this for anyone - even those who, like me, feel that they are not naturally artistic - for a brilliant day, pleasing results and some toothsome cake. I hope to come back for another course soon.

Response from Jackie Nash Art:Hi Elizabeth
We came to Jackie for something a bit different as a present for my Nan's birthday. As someone who’s not particularly arty I can say that this workshop is so much fun for people at all levels and Jackie is so helpful and clearly shows a high level of skill in her trade. We were all really impressed with what we had managed to create in the end and I would definitely consider taking part again.

Response from Jackie Nash Art:Thank you Jessica. I’m really glad you enjoyed the course. 😊
For our works Christmas outing this year we all spent a really lovely day at this beautiful mosaic workshop. Jackie is a very talented and creative teacher providing a supportive and fun filled experience. Her workshop is filled with a huge stock of beautiful mosaic tiles alongside various pieces of her amazing work. As well as helping us with ideas and assisting in the construction of our mosaics, Jackie was also the perfect host providing plenty of coffee accompanied by her delicious homemade cake. I would definitely recommend her workshop for a fab day out.

I spent a lovely day at jackies workshop with my work friends. Jackie has a fabulous choice of materials and her creative skills are amazing. We all made great mosiac pieces with the help of Jackie. We had lots of lovely cake and refreshments. I would truly recommmend this as a fun day to spend with your friends or family. I would most definitely go again. Thank you Jackie you offer a brilliant experience.

I had such a wonderful day, we booked for a Christmas party, such a lovely day spent with Jackie at her beautiful workshop. Jackie was extremely helpful and helped me create a fabulous star which is going in my hallway. It was a lovely relaxing environment, and Jackie made some delicious cakes for us all. I can’t recommend this mosaic course enough. I can’t wait to go back, this would make a fantastic gift.
Rachel Haynes - - #18800
We booked a day mosaic workshop for our work's Christmas get together. It was absolutely brilliant! Jackie is a very knowledgeable and experienced teacher as well as being loads of fun and the maker of delicious cake! We were well supplied with drinks and cake all day. It was great to learn a new skill and produce something beautiful to take home. I thoroughly recommend the workshop. It is good value for money and fantastic as a team building exercise. A 5 star day!
Anne-Marie Ross - - #18796
What a wonderful day! Jackie is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher. I have little craft ability yet came out of Jackies workshop with an excellent piece of artwork. Jackie is so creative she makes it seem easy. Her workshop has a huge variety of materials to choose from which makes anything in your mind become a reality. On top of all that I found Jackie to be so friendly and welcoming. She offered a constant stream of cups of tea all day and even home made cake, she just makes you want to go back again and again!!
Kate Davies - - #18745
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Hi Kate
What a fabulous experience. I booked myself and two friends to attend one of Jackie's courses, and what an absolute ball we had. Jackie was so friendly and approachable from start to finish, making us feel really welcome and very relaxed. She inspired us with lots of ideas, and was constantly on hand to help us, except when she was bringing us the most wonderful banana cake, scrumptious !! I can't thank Jackie highly enough, and would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who wants to step out of the stresses of life, and take a day for themselves. I didn't believe I could make something I would be really proud of, with Jackie's help, I now know I can.
Liz Cliff - - #17318
I did the one day course with Jackie and thoroughly enjoyed myself. In fact I am now hooked on mosaic making! I went back for the 2 day course and now I'm making my onw mosaics at home with growing confidence. The atmosphere in Jackie's workshops is relaxed and fun, she is there to help with ideas, practical tips, whatever is needed really. The refreshments are top quality too!
I am so glad I did the workshops and now have a new hobby for life- THANK YOU xx
Joanna - - #15931
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Thank you for such a lovely review. It was a pleasure to work with you and i’m so pleased your now making mosaics at home. Jackie 😊
Rose, Helen and I enjoyed a day in Jackie's wonderful workshop as a celebration of Rose's special birthday! At the beginning of the day, Jackie gave us an introduction to mosaics and helped us plan our designs. There was a huge choice of coloured tiles for the artwork and the equipment was good. Once we got 'stuck in', it was a relaxing way to spend a Monday. We took our own lunch and drink which Jackie served when we were ready. There were plenty of other drinks available. Thank you Jackie!
Judie - - #14115
Had a lovely relaxing day with Jackie creating a mosaic. I had no idea what I was doing but still managed to produce a lovely mosaic that has pride of place on my mantelpiece. Plenty of cups of tea and lovely home made cake to keep us going through the day. I would thoroughly recommend a days course. Thank you for a lovely day Jackie.
Stephanie Daley - - #13938
I did the one day mosaic workshop with a friend and had a lovely time. Neither of us had ever done mosaics before; I managed to mostly finish my piece (with spare materials to take home to complete) and observed the grouting technique (I've yet to try it on my piece). Jackie was a trove of information, help, hints and tips! The workroom was bright and pleasant, with shelf upon shelf of interesting tiles. Plenty of tea and cake throughout the day.
Overall, a friendly atmosphere resulting in a charming and relaxing day learning a new skill at my own pace; I have every intention of carrying it on to decorate my balcony. 😊
sadia - - #13918
I’ve had two amazing days with Jackie creating 2 mosaics which I’m thrilled with.
I enjoyed the first time so much I went back a second time!
You don’t need any previous experience because Jackie helps with new skills in a very friendly environment. She couldn’t be more helpful.
Plus delicious cake and coffee. What’s not to like?
Angela Cowdry - - #13673
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Thank you Angela for your lovely review. It was pleasure helping you with your animal portrait mosaics. Hope you continue making them as they really are fabulous!
I booked Jackie's half day class for my bestie's hen do, it was great fun! Suitable for all ages and artistic abilities. Jackie is so passionate about anything mosaic! I never imagined there were so many different tiles out there! You want it, Jackie has it!!
Then to top it all of Jackie baked!!
I left with a beautiful mosaic I didn’t think I was capable of and some recipes 😍
Rebecca Baker - - #13514
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Thank you for your lovely review and glad you enjoyed yourself .
My daughter and I had an absolutely fantastic day with Jackie. Neither of us had done anything like this before and we don't regard ourselves as particularly creative or artistic. However, Jackie's patient, careful and instructive tutoring changed that! Her work on display is inspirational and the choice of materials on offer is amazing. Jackie is clever at letting you do your own thing whilst giving guidance and help when needed. Alongside this, Jackie constantly supplied us with tea and gorgeous homemade Victoria sandwich cake. Although initially we found the prospect of making a mosaic in one day daunting, we quickly got into the process and actually found it very therapeutic. I'm amazed by what, with Jackie's encouragement, we were able to make and we're very proud of our finished pieces.
I can't praise this course highly enough. My daughter and I will be back again and in the meantime we will pursue the art of mosaic making.
Jan Bagnall - - #13356
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Thank you Jan for your lovely review. It was a pleasure working with yourself and Louisa. 😊
We had a lovely time with Jackie - a very special day for me, my mom, my best friend and her mom to celebrate a 60th birthday.
Jackie was friendly and her house is amazing! Such a pleasure to have a view into her world and to share her house and studio with us.
More than that Jackie is a real expert and is a fantastic guide - she inspired our designs and helped us shape our ideas and gave us lots of tips.
We were all amazed at the quality of what we produced in a day - and some things to really treasure.
I would highly recommend.
Rachael Magson - - #13052
What a fantastic day! It was so lovely to get creative and do something different. Jackie was so helpful and my mirror is something I can be proud of. I would definitely recommend this course and I will be back.
Best banana cake ever!
Jenny Waller - - #13042
What a fantastic and very therapeutic day! Thoroughly enjoyed the workshop from beginning to end and Jackie made us all feel very welcome with an endless supply of tea and homemade cakes! Jackie provided excellent guidance and inspiration and I absolutely love my finished piece. Jackie had a huge range of mosaic tiles for us to choose from, meaning we all got to make exactly what we envisaged . The best review I can give is to say I will definitely be back!
Emma Rowe - - #13041
Well organised mosaic course, led by a professional instructor, who encourages students to work at their own creative pace. Lots of help and encouragement given to all abilities. Well stocked, pleasant craft room, ideal for small social groups of all ages and genders. A very worthwhile one day craft course, that has inspired me to continue with the art of mosaic.
Perhaps classes on a different days of the week, may open up the course, to those who do not have Wednesday free.
Sylvia - - #13020
What a fab day I had with Jackie at her mosaic workshop. Jackie went above and beyond for me to create the piece I wanted. The possibilities are endless with all the different tiles to choose from. Jackie ensured we were all happy with our designs and offered guidance when we needed. A great experience very therapeutic. Thank you Jackie i look forward to creating another masterpiece with you soon.
Sarah - - #13012
I took my friend to one of Jackie's day mosaic courses and what a wonderful day we had. Jackie is a gifted teacher and very warm and friendly. Not only did we achieve a mosaic on the day, we learnt such a lot without even realising how much we had taken in. The studio is amazing with examples of the exquisite work done by Jackie and also of the beautiful work done by her students.
I cannot recommend Jackie enough for the care, attention and fun we had that day, together with an endless supply of tea and coffee and, of course, the most delicious cake.
Thank you Jackie, for a day to remember
Corinne Knight - - #12963
My daughter and I recently attended to one of Jackie's mosaic courses and both of us really loved it. Neither of us had any experience, however this was not an issue. We were guided, instructed, assisted and encouraged without undue pressure to produce a work of our own making. This was not the only delight, as the host was lovely, very welcoming and enjoyable company throughout and refreshments including banana cake were also forthcoming. With the surroundings, facilities and the congenial atmosphere, what is there not to like!
Whilst we came as a pair, I cannot believe that as an individual or indeed a group, that the experience would be any less.
Can wholeheartedly recommend the experience and you can come out with your own unique piece.
Suggest you have a go, you will love it.
Brian Morrison - - #12825
What a fabulous day! A birthday treat for my mother, which turned out to be a treat for us all.
Jackie is a wonderful host and an enthusiastic teacher. With a treasure trove of mosaics and lots of creative ideas to choose from, we were spoilt for choice for things to make. With plenty of support and a day of concentrated activity, we all left for home with something we were proud of.
I would highly recommend the day - and the lemon cake! We will come again.
Amelia - - #11718
I booked this course for my friend's 60th birthday present and I must say it was a wonderful day.
Jackie was warm, friendly and offered the right level of support and encouragement. She was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. She was happy to provide gluten free biscuits and cakes as my daughter and I follow a gluten free diet and cake for the birthday girl and her daughter. Jackie makes you very welcome in her home and the studio is an ideal learning environment. It was really special that there were only the 4 of us on the day so it felt very personal.
We were all pleased with the mosaic we produced and I would say it is one of the very few courses you can do if you are a beginner but also would suit people of all skill levels.
I would highly recommend the workshop to anyone, we had a truly fabulous day.
Jill Griffin - - #11626
One of my heroes from history is the Saxon monk, St Cuthbert, one-time abbot of Lindisfarne monastery. His corpse rests in Durham cathedral and, incredibly, his pectoral cross has survived and is part of the church's great treasures. I suggested to Jackie that I should love to do my own mosaic interpretation of the cross, and she enthusiastically took me under her wing and steered me gently towards achieving my ambition. I had no experience of mosaic work, but Jackie is an expertly sympathetic teacher. At no point did she instruct me to do anything. She discussed alternatives with me so that I could make informed choices, with the result that I sincerely believe that the cross is my creation. All in all, it was a wonderful experience, but most importantly, it was fun. Thank you lots, Jackie. Love, Al x.
Alan Clare - - #10844
We were celebrating one of our tennis group reaching a significant birthday. She is art trained and we felt that a mosaic day would suit her well. In fact it suited us all whatever our ability. We had such fun, but we really concentrated and we're amazed and pleased with our results. Jackie is a delight - so helpful and encouraging. The hours whisked by in her lovely studio - such a fab way to spend a day learning something new.
Teresa - - #10507
An amazing day. The opportunity to be creative and get away from it all was so welcome. Great company, excellent support and guidance, lots of fun, fabulous food. My mosaic will be proudly installed in my garden.
Thank you so much Jackie.
Jayne - - #9939
Spent a thoroughly enjoyable day at the workshop. Jackie gave excellent tuition but then stepped back to let you create your mosaic. She seemed to instinctively know when you needed a guiding hand. Fabulous choice of tiles to select from. delicious food as well especially the banana cake!
Janet Millward - - #9938
We had a fantastic day getting creative with Jackie's expert encouragement. I was delighted that Jackie allowed me to make use of her studio to try out ideas of my own, I wasn't sure they would work, but Jackie's experience and advice beforehand and on the day ensured success. I love my crockery bird mosaic and my carp on a slate - 2 mosaics in a day! I am planning a return visit to make some more. Did I mention that she is a fantastic host and has a beautiful home - a real treat to spend a day with her. Thanks!
Lisa Winterbourn - - #9709
What a wonderful creative afternoon we spent with Jackie. She was lovely with my girls (aged 11 & 9), she was patient and guided them on what worked and made sure as it was their first time they did go to ambitious! We had a fab time and would definitely go back, we have the mosaic bug!!
Thank you Jackie
Rachael Goodman - - #8829
What a fabulous day my mother in law & I had at Jackie's on her mosaic course.
It was a full day with an amazing choice of tiles. Jackie's patience & eye for detail was wonderful & I was so pleased with my end result.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone, whether you are artistic or not.
In fact I am booking in for another session this Summer!
Samantha Eustace - - #8824
I had a fabulous day at Jackie's mosaics workshop creating a truly wonderful flower mosiac. Jackie's guidance and encouragement was great, and the choice of colours in the tiles was amazing. I would recommend this course to anybody out there who wants an enjoyable day being creative (even if you feel you're not) you will be at the end.
Rebecca Brookes - - #8822
What a wonderful day . Jackie made us feel so at home and is an excellent teacher . I did not expect to complete a mosaic in one day but the constant help and advice really made a difference . We were served delicious soup for lunch and numerous cups of tea or coffee . I highly recommend this course and can't wait to go again
Aisha Ahmed - - #8406

I had such a fabulous day, I love the mirror I made and it is now hanging on my wall for everyone to see! (My husband loved it too!). The choice of mosaics tiles was incredible - just like a sweet shop!
Thank you for the advice and aupport throughout the day. I will definitely be back to do another one!

Lovely relaxed atmosphere in the studio and Jackie was really patient and knowledgeable.
I managed to make a really nice mosaic from the wide range of materials on offer and can't wait to return with a group of friends.
