I received a gift voucher for this course as a Christmas present. It has definitely been the best experience I’ve had from a craft class and a much appreciated gift. It started with a warm welcome and a hot drink, Sue puts you at ease and though her mosaics are outstanding she remains a humble lady. Everything is provided and nothing is too much trouble, she is a natural and patient teacher. I’m not a natural crafter! I enjoy it rather than having natural ability but that didn’t matter as I still managed to produce a mosaic I am proud of. The 6 hours flew by and I hope Sue will provide other courses in the future as I would love to learn more.

Just wanted to thank you for a fabulous day at your mosaic course. Linda and I enjoyed it so much. It was lovely to meet you, and other attendees. Made for a wonderful day. I can highly recommend your master class. I am delighted with my first mosaic piece with your expert guidance, and I am now looking forwards to creating another.

Thank you Sue for a very well tutored, productive and inspiring day.
The studio is so well equipped and organised, with everything needed to complete the challenge of a mosaic.
Everyone went away with a beautiful unique piece of work plus an information sheet of where to buy mosaic supplies.
Can't wait to start my next piece!
