Brilliant experience, wonderful support to your own ideas
This was a great course, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was quite nervous to begin with as had never done mosaics before and wasn't sure if I would struggle especially with cutting glass! Paul and the team were fantastic and very patient. They were always at hand to help at every stage, explaining and demonstrating.
The work space was lovely, bright and relaxing to work in. I loved every minute of creating my mosaic and can't wait to start another project. Thank you so much.
The course was immensely enjoyable and I found it wonderful to be so immersed and focused. The technique is really very therapeutic.
The team made us all very welcome, the studio is a lovely place to be guided through each step of the process in a relaxed, creative environment with everything you need to hand.
You really need no previous experience and we all came away with beautiful and unique creations. Everyone's personality comes through in their pieces, and it's so enjoyable seeing everyone's ideas come together.
I feel very fortunate such a talented and enthusiastic team are happy to share their expertise with us. It's really very inspiring and I'm already planning my next project!
Just got home from my 1st 2 day course, hopefully not my last, had a wonderful time came home with a picture which far exceeded my initial hope of producing, thanks Paul, Emma and all the team
Lovely course with lovely people.
Paul was so patient, kind and professional. Emma was always ready to help and guide you through the process. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience from design to building our own mosaic artwork.
I enjoyed it so much, I’m hoping to book on another one!
Thanks Paul and Emma
As someone with limited artistic ability I was nervous and excited about attending the course especially as I had done no mosaic work in the past.
No worries! The expert tuition and help was fantastic in a lovely relaxed atmosphere.
I really enjoyed the course and am looking forward to booking a second course.

This is a fabulous course and I must be turning into a 'Masterclass Junkie' as I have now completed my third one!
So, if you want to learn a new skill, with fantastically talented and enthusiastic tutors, in a creative and supportive environment, then beat a path to share some time with Paul and Emma at The Mosaic Studio in Leigh-on-Sea.
You'll be very glad you did.
My wife really enjoyed the course and looking forward to the next one!
