From the moment I met Ann and her husband Will, we absolutely clicked. I spent the best two days at their studio set in a tranquil rural Setting just minutes from Inverurie. I learned how to put my vision into mosaic, Ann is a great teacher and her enthusiasm shines out of her. I wanted to escape my busy life and create, and I did just that. I would highly recommend this experience, I’m absolutely smitten.i am definitely looking forward to returning and trying different things. 5 stars

Had a fantastic time on Ann's two day course, could have spent a whole week there! Ann is such a wonderful teacher, in the most relaxing, welcoming and chilled out surroundings. It was honestly brilliant. The course caters for the beginner like me to the most gifted, Ann is fantastic and so encouraging (and Will too). Highly recommend Blue Sky Mosaics and definitely plan for a return visit.

Response from Blue Sky Mosaics:Thank-you so much for your lovely review Geraldine, it was a pleasure having you on this course.
My two day course was wonderful. Ann is very knowledgeable and was very patient and helpful, and Will did a fantastic job of cutting pieces with his power tools and also had lots of useful hints and tips.
The surroundings are so relaxing, I felt really at home. I'll be returning soon to finish another piece, I can't wait.

Response from Blue Sky Mosaics:Thank-you for your review Helen, I so enjoyed having you on the course.
I attended a 2 day mosaic course last week and had a lovely time. Ann and Will make you feel very welcome and Ann is a brilliant teacher and extremely talented. Ann's previous work is displayed and she has some wonderful mosaics. I will definitely be visiting again and have the confidence to make more mosaics on my own. Thank you Ann and Will for all your guidance and inspiration and I hope to see you again soon.

Ann’s mosaic classes are first class. She is inspirational, very patient and helpful, as is her husband Will. After my first course, I just had to go back and with the help of Ann created several mosaic tables. She is particularly good with children. Three of my grandchildren have visited her twice during their summer holidays. They loved making a seahorse, toadstools and coasters, which have pride of place in their bedrooms. We all recommend Ann and her mosaic courses.

I did a weekend mosaic course here; it was brilliant, and excellent value. Ann is patient and kind. She made me feel completely at home and welcome. The studio is extremely well stocked with a myriad of glass, tiles equipment and resources. We were encouraged to experiment, but Ann was there to help and teach when you needed her. I couldn't believe how well the mosaic I made turned out! I thoroughly enjoyed the course and have been inspired to continue mosaic making at home. It is now a passion.
Oh, and the hot scones were delicious. :-)

I have attended the two day course at Blue Sky Mosaics on two occasions. The first time was a gift from my husband and I couldn't have had a better birthday experience . Ann is a warm, giving teacher whose easy manner enables her students to learn a new craft and possibly develop a lifelong love of mosaic. There is inspiration aplenty around her studio with many of her own mosaics on display and there is a wonderful array of materials for student to use to create unique artworks to take home.

Ann is an excellent tutor - her courses are always inspiring and an opportunity to meet with other like-minded individuals.
She is hands-on and always available to help when inspiration falters!

i was new to mosaics and Ann and Will made me very welcome . I learnt many skills to complete a table on a two day course. Ann gives just the right amount of teaching and shares her knowledge perfectly. I learnt so much on this course that I have been able to continue with this craft at home. I have returned since the course to purchase glass. It was so good to catch up with them both and to be inspired to carry on. I really recommend going on a course.

I had the priviledge and pleasure of undertaking two seperate days of mosaic classes. Ann is very clear, concise, detailed, patient and wonderful company.
Set in a beautiful, peaceful location, the heart is inspired and the mind is refreshed.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this craft for any age and ability and beautiful creations are waiting to be made!

This class with Ann should come with a health warning ...beware it is addiction forming. Ann is one of the most patient teachers I know , gently guiding you through all the necessary techniques to create your own mini masterpiece . Looking back its several years since my daughter , sisters and I attended the first course and I have nothing but fond memories and still love Mosaics . I remember such good craic over the 2 day course that we came away feeling we had not only learned a new skill but made a new friend .
Ann's encouragement does not stop when you leave the premises either. Her ongoing mentorship and passion for mosaics has been a boon to me with all sorts of ongoing queries . I would recommend Blue sky Mosaics wholeheartedly to anyone looking to acquire a new addiction

I couldn't believe my luck when I found Ann! Inspiring, enthusiastic and most of all - fun to work with. Fabulous countryside setting to work in yet just a short drive from the city of Aberdeen. I would highly recommend attending one of Ann's courses if you want to learn or improve your mosaic skills.

Blue Sky Mosaics is a wonderful and relaxing venue to get your creative juices running. Ann is such an inspirational, knowledgeable and patient tutor who guided me through the technique and helped me complete a large outdoor mural.
Plenty of exciting materials to choose from and a welcome cuppa to drink as you browse around the Aladdins Cave.
I was hooked on day one and have gone on to create many different pieces at home. Would definitely recommend.

I was greatly inspired by the course. I learned so much and have continued doing mosaics at home. Both our families were thrilled with their Christmas present of a new piece of artwork!
Ann is very knowledgeable, encouraging, helpful and friendly and William is always in the background lending technical support.
I can thoroughly recommend the courses.
