About the Course

Treat yourself to a wonderful day of mosaicing and create something beautiful to take home with you. I will teach you how to use mosaic tools and what adhesives and materials to use. You can choose to mosaic a plant pot, slate shapes (hearts and squares) or a plaque for your wall, all fully outdoor proof. You can choose to mosaic a picture for indoors instead, it’s up to you! My studio is set in a lovely rural setting where the only sounds you will hear will be birdsong and the nipping of tiles!

My aim is for you to have a lovely relaxing day and to have all the information needed to carry on mosaicing at home. 2018 dates now added on my website, please take a look. Located 10mins from Birmingham NEC and airport, just off junction 6, M42.

Thoroughly enjoyed this course. Anne is an excellent teacher and her enthusiasm and expert guidance enabled me to achieve a mosaic far better than I could have hoped for. Her workshop is very well equipped and we were amply supplied with refreshments including a delicious lunch.

Thank you Anne.

I thoroughly enjoyed my day learning how to design and make a mosaic with Anne. It was a day full of concentration, yet very relaxing and informal. The setting, the delicious 3-course lunch and friendly company all contributed to making the day incredibly enjoyable. I learnt a lot from Anne and was very pleased with my finished mosaic. I would definitely recommend this workshop.
Thanks again Anne.

It was a really wonderful day. A great atmosphere, Anne has lots of patience and a lovely sense of humour. Not only is she a great tutor but also a great host (lunch was lovely and catered to some fairly specific dietary requirements without any fuss). Lots of choice around what to make and different things to make it with and the day was so good I'm thinking about repeating it to try out a different project

Thank you so much for such an inspiring day at your beautifully situated work shop. Thoroughly enjoyed your hospitality to celebrate my Birthday with my friends and I’m sure my beautiful pot will be the first of many projects thanks to your patient teaching skills.
Fantastic day!

Absolutely loved this course - not only is Anne a wonderful host but is very knowledgeable, helpful and attentive during the full day. The day starts with croissants and nibbles, and the all important cuppa, then introduction to tools, choice of medium and instructions to help get started. A group of 6 on the course - a good number to work amongst as you have enough room but also the company to get to know and work with. Wonderful craft room filled to the brim with loads of options to create that masterpiece! Lunchtime and a superb setting overlooking fields, with a top 3 course meal. Back to work on the piece for the afternoon session and again Anne is the host with the most! Anne couldn't do enough to help during the day, and we actually created multiple pieces. Honestly can't fault Anne and the days course - absolutely loved it, and will definitely be looking at booking again in the future! Thanks so much for the experience Anne!!

An excellent day; very relaxing learning new skills to make a lovely mosaic pot and plaque in a peaceful setting with a lovely lunch.
We will continue with our new hobby to make gifts and more items for our home.
Recommended to anyone interested in trying mosaics for the first time or to increase their skill.
Anne was very friendly and a very good teacher.

A fabulous day I had never done this before but came away with a beautiful plaque. Ann was a great teacher with a lovely personality and lots of tips, advice and patience. Lunch was excellent, a lovely relaxing day I will definitely be going back.

Second time I have done this course, and I had another fabulous day. Anne is the perfect host and teacher, nothing is too much trouble for her, and lunch was superb. Really pleased with my flowerpot,and will definitely be returning again.

This was an all day mosaic course and absolutely fantastic. Anne was very good at guiding, suggesting and helping us with our mosaics. I chose a flowerpot to work on and Anne patiently advised on suitable materials as well as the relevant tools and the techniques throughout the course of the day to create a beautiful mosaic.

The day included lunch which was signficantly better than a standard lunch and was well worth the break. Anne also served endless tea.

Definitely worth it
