Formerly known as "More Mosaics", I relocated to the beautiful Orkney Islands in 2019 from Lancashire, to continue my creative journey offering my various craft workshops to locals and visitors alike. I can now offer a twin room and can accommodate 2 visitors if required. The Islands offer lots of inspiration, and I hope to expand and grow my workshops to include local activities in the future such as collecting beach pebbles to decorate in mosaics!
