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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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
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!
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.
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
I thoroughly enjoyed my day workshop with Jackie, I was amazed I created something I am so proud of! There was a wonderful selection of beautiful tiles to use and Jackie's advice and help was wonderful! I was the most fabulous day and I can absolutely recommend.
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!
Recently attended Jackie's mosaic course and really enjoyed it.
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.
I absolutely loved Jackie's mosaic course & would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn.
Jackie is extremely welcoming & friendly & the workshop is situated in idyllic surroundings.
I found the course to be informative & helpful & thoroughly enjoyed both the day & experience. Nothing was too much trouble, the refreshments served delightful & under Jackie's expert guidance I was able to produce a mosaic I am proud of.
A fantastic experience whether booking as an individual or group of friends.
