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 for indoor and outdoor.
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!
I have lots and lots of different materials for you to use, tiles, glass, stones and crockery.
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. Mosaicing can be very addictive!
Please bring a packed lunch with you. I will provide a breakfast muffin on arrival and scones with jam and cream during your lunch break. I also supply tea/coffee and cold drinks throughout your day.
Located 10mins from Birmingham NEC and airport, just off junction 6, M42

My daughter and I had never attempted making a mosaic before so were unsure how we would get on. We had great day with Anne who was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful both on the day and afterwards, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and went home with mosaics we could both be proud of producing. A delicious lunch was provided, and we worked in a very relaxing setting in good company. We highly recommend Anne's course, a day well spent.

My sister in law, Lin and I had a great day doing the mosaics course with Ann. She was a a great teacher friendly and enthusiastic. Her house and surrounding garden are so lovely and the lunch and hospitality was just as good. I managed to make a mosaic slate heart for outdoors, a lovely slate vintage button heart and even had time to make a coaster!!! Lin made a lovely fish mosaic for her garden.
I would thoroughly recommend a day with Ann doing such an absorbing workshop. Thanks so much.

I have taken on board her advice and start a project when my tiles get here
Thank you x

The best craft workshop I have ever attended...and I’ve been to a lot! It was a relaxing, enjoyable and therapeutic day creating a mosaic piece to take home. Anne is a wonderful tutor with plenty of great ideas and guidance and very generous with her materials. The setting is wonderful and the homemade lunch that Anne provided was delicious. I will 100% be booking another workshop with her very soon!

This was a treat for myself and a friend. We both wanted to learn something new, but don't feel very confident artistically or creatively. What a fab day! We really had a great time, both produced a really lovely piece of work, with which we were very pleased, and had a great time into the bargain! Anne pitches the whole day just right. The welcome, level of instruction and support, the on tap refreshments, the beautiful, peaceful setting, the great lunch. It was all an amazing experience, and, although we went purely to enjoy the day, we are both keen to get some tools and have a go at home.
A whole hobby world is opening up to us that we never would have tried without Anne.
Thanks so much, Anne. Anyone wondering if it's for them, definitely give it a go. Great fun, great value.

A faultless and enjoyable day. We all had a rewarding day and Anne looked after us all with great instructions and exceptional hospitality. Highly recommended, even for a craft phobic like me.

My daughter and I had a wonderful time. The venue is in a beautiful place and we felt so relaxed. Anne was so welcoming and a great teacher. We came away with some lovely mosaics. I can't wait to start applying mosaics to my garden wall which I now have the confidence to do.

Neither of us had ever done Mosiacs before but we both managed to produce some very pleasing pictures and a pit. The location is beautiful with a new timber room in the garden, where the course took place. There were stacks of tiles and other sparkly and shiney things to choose from. We had a scrumptious fresh quiche lunch with salad and potatoes followed by carrot cake. Anne is very friendly and helpful. I would totally recommend the course - not only did I learn something new and come away with some lovely things I’d made, but it was a real treat to spend all day crafting in good company.

Had a great day with Anne and three other lovely ladies producing my first mosaics. Anne is an excellent teacher and really knows her craft. Her studio is very well equipped and I felt like a kid in a sweetshop trying to decide what I wanted to use in my mosaics. I was really chuffed with what I made and will be doing more mosaicing at home. Lots of hot drinks and a delightful lunch rounded off a splendid day! I will definitely be going back for another workshop.

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.

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

Fabulous day with a fabulous host and teacher. Thank you Anne. All three of us did Christmas mosaics and thoroughly enjoyed the 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.
Alan and Annette - - #15534
A great workshop run by Anne, who certainly knew her stuff, amazing hostess too! Managed to complete two plaques!! Truly enjoyable, a fabulous setting, with a gorgeous lunch, proseco, tea, coffee and cake. Will certainly be going back and can highly recommend. Thank you Anne!!!!

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.
Diane Hill - - #15432
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
