Description

Learn mosaic ONLINE with me where you not only get to LEARN something new but its a great time to set aside some YOU time to RELAX and RESET your mind.

My aim is to not only help you learn how to create mosaics, but to also encourage you to take time out and focus on your well-being. When you decide to create that space for YOU, you are saying YES to nurturing your mind body and soul. This is why I have titled my workshops Mindfulness with Mosaic.

WHY MOSAIC?
Mosaic making is likened to a guided meditation. Each broken piece is chosen specifically or at random and turned into a beautiful masterpiece using care, attention and patience. It’s a lot of fun, relaxing and rewarding.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Creating mosaics can help reduce anxiety and stress. It helps to still the mind and aid with relaxation. In addition to this, it can help improve general wellbeing such as empathy and coping under pressure.

Dionne was amazing! She gave me some very simple but useful tips on how to get going with my mosaic project. I had taken on something far too complicated but I managed to complete it with Dionne’s
zoom sessions. Had a tremendous amount of fun with her and will definitely be having further sessions in the future.

I had never done Mosaic art before and was invited by Dionne to her class during a half-term school holiday. I attended the course with my two children and my niece aged 5, 7 and 21. To my surprise, it was one of the most enjoyable experiences I have had in a very long time. I had no expectations because it was all very new to me but what a great session we all had. I loved the way Dionne taught the class and it was a lovely environment. The kids really enjoyed the experience and are looking forward to doing more mosaic work in the future. It was great to see that this is a course that can be attended by the whole family and of different age ranges. I have already informed Dionne that we will be attending the next session she holds during the school holidays. I would definitely recommend Dionne and this course.

Dionne is very good at making mosaicing easier and accessible to people who have never done this sort of thing before but also catering for experienced people. The workshop was very engaging and so much fun, perfect for families and people who would like to try new things. She provided a range of equipment which allowed us to be creative and go with our imaginations. Dionne really drew out my creative side and helped me achieved two mosaic plaques that I am really pleased with. Overall, it was a wonderful experience that I highly recommend you to try out and maybe discover a new love for mosaicing!

Great atmosphere to learn, Dionne was friendly, approachable and helpful whilst allowing you to get on and work at your own speed. Thrilled with what I accomplished on the day course!

I have always wanted to learn to mosaic and when I wanted to do this special project, a one-to-one with Dionne was the right choice.
A complete novice, with little creativity, I was apprehensive about how I would get on. Dionne made me feel very at ease. I had a few ideas and after chatting things through and with Dionne’s expertise, I soon had a plan.
Dionne demonstrated different techniques and was extremely patient as I experimented. The day went very quickly and I am so pleased with my finished mosaic. I think I am hooked on this craft! I would recommend Dionne’s workshop to anybody.

This was an absorbing day of learning something new. Dionne is quietly inspiring and so patient. I'm a beginner with no mosaic experience but I'm now very enthusiatic to learn more.
It was a very satisfying experience to leave with a finished item and having spent the day with lovely people.
I would recommend to anyone.

I had such a lovely day with Dionne. She taught me the techniques I needed to use as this was my first attempt at mosaic. She gave me just the right balance of independence and guidance so that I felt enabled and supported. I was able to complete the project I had wanted to create and take the finished article home. Dionne is very professional and friendly so the whole experience was relaxing and absorbing and I felt I had accomplished something new. I would highly recommend her.

5 friends had a lovely workshop day at my house. It was relaxing and really enjoyable. Dionne taught and encouraged us in friendly and professional way. We all ended up with a very personal piece to take away.

This is my second class with Dionne. It's nice to be creative and produce your own piece of work. Dionne is a great teacher patient and just let's your imagination flow. Already looking forward to my next class for Xmas!! Highly recommended to novices to give it a go.

I really enjoyed my weekend course that I attended. As a complete novice, my every need was tended to. There were plenty of books to look at at to get ideas and inspiration and all the equipment you need to create your piece. Dionne was as attentive as you needed her to be, happy to let you get on with it and there to help when you got stuck. I came home with a lovely piece to be proud of.

As a complete beginner, this was my introduction to mosaic and I loved it. Dionne is great, a good balance between providing guidance and encouraging you to learn through practice.

Lots of inspiration provided through Dionne's own amazing work and a stack of books are made available.

The 6 hours absolutely flew by and has definitely inspired me to do more. I hope to be back in the future.

So, second time, left with a started lazy Susan and masses of motivation from an excellent teacher. Colour, design, angles, thank you Dionne.

I had a thoroughly enjoyable day at a Dionne's. Her instructions are easy to follow and you get stuck in almost straight away, there is plenty of help and encouragement, and the time absolutely flies. I feel I have learned enough to embark on projects at home.
Ample coffee, biscuits and cake, though you don't want to stop to enjoy them!

If you're thinking about trying this, I say go for it, you'll have fun and learn something new at the same time.

My mosaic day was very enjoyable and Dionne's guidance and encouragement made the experience of creating my sunflower mosaic and finishing it at home a wonderful achievement. There was books to find ideas and a amazing selection of mosaic colours to explore with. Looking forward to my next creation.

I attended Dionne's mosaic workshop last weekend. I had a great time. She had a fantastic selection of materials and is lovely to work with. I love love my mosaic and was really inspired by her artwork and the creativity of the other people in the workshop. I would highly recommend the workshop.

I did a mosaic making birthday party with my friends and really enjoyed it. I am not very artistic but still loved designing and making my mosaic. Dionne created a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere and provided lots of design ideas. I would definitely recommend trying this out!

A great weekend which has left me feeling on top of the world. As a newcomer to mosaics, I booked two days and am so glad I did. It gave me time to learn how to cut the tiles, select a design and then create a whole A4 mosaic. Dionne's style gave me the space to choose what I wanted to do and let me get on quietly with it, with a good selection of colours and textures of tiles to give the results I wanted, but when I had questions she was there with ideas and guidance. I felt completely supported and encouraged and will be doing more!

Dionne is a very talented artist and teacher, she spares no effort to explain and show in minute details every step of learning mosaics, everything is supplied. Her passion is reflected in her warm personality. I recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in mosaics.

Simone - - #1656

Dionne's workshop is amazing - really fun day and I learned loads. Great setting in Dionne's lovely home - gives it a personal touch. Dionne works really closely with each person so you can develop your own creation with as much help as you need. Designs and all materials are provided so you can pick something from a book or you can bring your own work like I did and she will help you bring it to life. You come away having learned the basis of a new skill. Also, if you don't finish, Dionne gives you extra tiles and grout to work on at home.

Highly recommend this course!

Such fun in a lovely environment. I didn't know I had such creativity in me. I was very pleased with my creation and Dionne's experience, knowledge and unending assistance (and tea). Going back on Monday for some more :o)

Maggie Evans - - #1563

Dionne came to my house to give myself and my friend a two hour introductory course. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time - Dionne is a fab tutor, knowledgable, friendly and above all patient. We were stupid enough to think it would not take long to complete our items but how wrong were we!! Mosaics are definitely time consuming. Dionne left enough materials for us to finish our projects and returned to show us how the final stages on mounting the finished article onto our chosen base. We are delighted with our items and would thoroughly recommend Dionne

In-person course
Gillian Hardy - - #1562

Thoroughly enjoyed this one day course. Dionne has a lot of examples and books you can use to create your design from and a large amount of material to chose from too. I think this course would be suitable for both beginners and more experienced in mosaics as Dionne works with a variety of materials and techniques. Also as the class size is small you all get a lot of attention and support from Dionne in creating your masterpiece, unlike other courses I have attended where I have had to wait a long time when I need some assistance. The day just flew by and I am very pleased with mosaic I have made.

Dionne is a friendly and professional tutor. I had the pleasure of a days course with my two daughters who are 12 and 17. Dionne gave us great overview of mosaic techniques and was helpful and encouraging. We completed our pieces at home and were delighted with them! Dionne provides a warm and friendly atmosphere in which to ask questions and get tips on technique and how to approach problems with positive instructions. She was great with the younger children and has an easy to get along with manner. It was a lovely day, wonderfully relaxing! And great cake too!!!
