A friend and I spent 2 days with Linda and had a fantastic time. I am really proud of the Yin/Yang door number I made and also a beautifully decorated pot (still needs grouting!!) LInda was a pleasure to be with, her teaching was brilliant and very encouraging and she kept us well topped up with tea and biscuits.
Now at home with time on my hands due to the Coronavirus I am going to finish my beautiful pot and also look into starting a new project.

We had a fantastic time with Lynda and learnt loads. She is such an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher who absolutely gets the best experience for her students.
Lots of ideas to choose from and loads of materials to play with. I will definitely go on to continue with mosaic making in my free time.
I highly recommend this workshop.
Suzanne James - - #29556
Response from Creating Mosaics:Thank you Suzanne& James, I enjoyed the day with both of you. You both did brilliantly. Yes I do hope you continue building on what you learnt. Your enthusiasm and understanding of techniques involved will enable you to tackle any projects at home now. x
I treated my friend to a mosaic workshop with Lynda, having already attended one myself last summer, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Lynda is friendly and welcoming, and we had a very enjoyable day, taking home with us the skills and info we need to add the finishing touches to our individual projects. If you have not tried mosaicking before, Lynda's workshop is a great way to dip your toe in the water, and if you are like me, you will be keen to return.
Thank you Lynda for your help, enthusiasm, patience and encouragement - we had a truly special day

Response from Creating Mosaics:It was so lovely to see you again It was a delight to see you produce a "night time" version of your original mosaic. So impressed with your interpretation and use of materials. Well done Sarah. x
We had such a fantastic day. Linda was so helpful and knowledgeable. The day went at the perfect pace and was so relaxing. I had been looking for a mosaic workshop for some time and I'm so glad I found this one. Thank you so much!
Michelle Roberts - - #27917
Response from Creating Mosaics:Thank you Michelle. I was so impressed by your clever use of the vintage china and other mixed to produce your wonderful mosaic.
I recently went here with my daughter and friend, what a great day we all had. Linda was such a nice lady, really helpful, full of encouragement.
We had a really fun day, all made lovely things, and we have all planned to go back, staying in Broadstairs, so we can have 2 days with Linda, I can`t wait.
We all came up from Ashford, I only wished we lived closer, I think I would be visiting Linda all the time!!
Thank-you Linda for a great eventful day.
Eileen Wilson - - #27735
Response from Creating Mosaics:Thank you Eileen for your lovely feedback and thank you all for a wonderful day - I thoroughly enjoyed it too. You were all so receptive and achieved great results. I cannot wait to see you all again soon. xxx
We had a wonderful day doing mosaics with Lynda! She was very helpful and gave us lots of ideas to play around with. She was very friendly and gave us endless supplies of tea and biscuits!
Would definitely recommend.
Isabelle Cooper - - #24904
Response from Creating Mosaics:You were all such a delight to spend the day with, thank you. I loved all your mosaic creations. Hope to see you again.
What a great day!
Linda was very welcoming and showed me some examples of her own work before we stepped out into her workshop, and what a delight that was. It was a treasure trove of colourful tiles, beads, shells, plates, stones and lovely shiny things. Luckily Linda had a folder of mosaic pictures to give me some inspiration and once I had some idea of what to do, she guided me through the process with a relaxed yet informative approach.
Making the mosaic was such fun, and it was most enjoyable being creative with Linda to help me. As the end of the session approached, it was apparent that I had to get a move on in order to complete the mosaic. Linda was very encouraging and helped me to be decisive without telling me what to do.
I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone. Linda has such a wide range of resources and experience. I learnt so much and feel inspired to do more.
And yes I did finish it!
Maggie Lund - - #24187
Response from Creating Mosaics:Thank you Maggie for your great review. Your mosaic piece was lovely, you must be proud. I do hope you send me a photo of your mosaic when you have grouted it. No rush though :) Do come again x.
What a lovely relaxing and therapeutic day. Many thanks Lynda for your patience and vast knowledge in helping me to create a garden pot - I love it!
Sharon - - #23849
Response from Creating Mosaics:Sharon I really enjoyed the day and know that you had fun too. You produced a lovely garden pot. So proud of you.
My friend and I had an amazing day with Lynda. We were both chuffed with what we made in just one day. Lynda is a lovely lady - super knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I now have a piece of art for my summer house which I can be proud of. Many thanks Lynda.
Janice Judd - - #23840
Response from Creating Mosaics:Thank you for your great review Janice. I loved what you produced, in just a few hours. Your mosaic is amazing and I know it will look fabulous in your summerhouse.
This was my first ever crafting workshop of any type, and I had a really enjoyable day. Linda quickly made my friend and I feel at home, and after showing us examples of her work, ran through the basics and a book stuffed full of ideas, and we were off. She has a lovely teaching way, and whilst always on hand if help or advice was wanted, she also left us to work under our own steam.
Although I did not finish my piece on the day, Linda sent me home with a good supply of adhesive, tiles and grout (and good instruction leaflet) so that I can finish it off in my own time at home. I would thoroughly recommend this workshop, and my friend and I had a really different, but lovely day.
Thank you Linda
Sarah Heaton - - #23794
Response from Creating Mosaics:Sarah it was my absolute pleasure. I am so glad that you enjoyed the day - I did too. I would so love to see a photo when you have finished your outdoor slate mosaic shelf / drinks table for your garden. I know your guests will admire your handiwork it is so full of colour. Definitely a conversation piece. Thank you.
I had a simply wonderful day with Lynda "mosaicing" an outdoor plant pot. Lynda showed me lots of examples to inspire me and then I was set free in her Aladdin's cave of materials. Lynda achieved the perfect balance of instruction and letting me get on with it. She is incredibly knowledgeable and creative but also very practical. I had the most enjoyable time sitting in Lynda's garden studio, overlooking her gorgeous garden with the sun beating down. She was generous with her encouragement and gave really helpful advice. I was well looked after with regular refreshments and a relaxed lunch break sitting in the sun. We even had the Red Arrows flying overhead! I am absolutely delighted with my pot. It reminds of my travels but also of a thoroughly enjoyable day. Thank you Lynda.
Leila Williams - - #22790
Response from Creating Mosaics:Thank you for your lovely review Leila. It was a great day. I loved your design and colour choices. You must be very proud of what you achieved, it was beautiful.
I highly recommend this beginners' course. I have been twice now and will keep on going back! Lynda is a delightful person, very knowledgeable and generous with that knowledge. She is full of ideas and inspiration and encouragement. Her studio is situated perfectly in her lovely garden, full of light and surrounded by the beautiful pieces she herself has made or is currently working on, so you absorb the creative atmosphere as you work, while Lynda gives you all the materials you need, as well as invaluable tips and guidance throughout the day. It is great fun and therapeutic too - I absolutely love it - thank you so much Lynda!
Emma Braid-Taylor - - #18837
Response from Creating Mosaics:Thank you Emma. You have created three very different and amazing mosaic pieces over the two courses. I am excited to see what you create next time. Looking forward to another enjoyable day with you.
Really fun, informative day learning so much about the art of making mosaics. Lynda is so informative, has completed over 10 years of mosaic artwork, and has a wealth of knowledge which she willingly imparts to her students. I had fun sharing ideas and learning tidbits of information to enhance my new hobby. She has good ideas for repurposing everyday, discarded items in the home, into useful items mosaic tools and supplies, thus saving the mosaicist unneeded costs. She shared all her supplies so that the student could have a good understanding about the whole mosaic process. We worked in a warm, light filled hobby room in her lovely back garden. I highly recommend Lynda's classes !
Ponda - - #18524
Response from Creating Mosaics:Thank you for your positive review Ponda. I am pleased that you learnt some useful tips to enhance your knowledge. Your approach to mosaics is bold and imaginative. Well done.
What a fabulous day! Lynda is a wonderful teacher, so friendly and welcoming. Great value for money - everything is provided to produce a lovely piece of unique art, and Lynda helps all the way with ideas, inspiration and encouragement. The day rushed by as we worked and chatted! Lovely studio full of supplies - and an opportunity to buy some bits to continue my new hobby at home! Thank you Lynda - this was my first foray into mosaic but I will definitely be back! X
Elizabeth Cooke - - #18430
Response from Creating Mosaics:Thank you Elizabeth for your lovely comments. I loved your enthusiasm and you were so receptive and produced fantastic results.
Had lovely day in Lynda's studio as rain lashed down outside. I went with my sister and my friend's daughter aged 13 and nephew aged 14. We learned basics of doing mosaics, different methods, techniques, about tools and materials. Lynda supplied notes to accompany the teaching. We were given freedom to do whatever basic mosaic we wanted. I did a pot and the others used plywood squares. All of us were pleased (and somewhat surprised!) at the results. Given lots of encouragement, assistance and ideas by Lynda who is very warm and friendly. An enjoyable and productive day was had by all.
Jill Worley - - #17820
Response from Creating Mosaics:Thank you for your great review Jill. I was so impressed at what you all achieved in one day. You all produced something different and unique and for your first time WOW!! I hope that I have inspired you all to continue doing more mosaics in the future. You were all a delight to teach. Well done. xx
I have just completed a one-day mosaic workshop with Lynda and I have come away with renewed confidence and delight at having covered a large terracotta pot with beautiful mosaic. I was a complete beginner and Lynda guided me every step of the way with expert tips and clear experience. She shows you the wide variety of what is possible to make, using her own designs and creations for inspiration, as well as lots of illustrations of other people's work worldwide. She is very knowledgeable and inspires a can-do attitude but, even better, she imparts her knowledge in a very accessible and generous way. The day was great fun, very relaxed, but at the same time full of invaluable information, so that I came away with a sense of great achievement and wellbeing. I will be definitely booking another course with Lynda and cannot recommend her workshop highly enough.
Emma Braid-Taylor - - #17641
Response from Creating Mosaics:Emma thank you for such lovely comments. You were a joy to share the day with and to see you grow in confidence from that person who arrived with initial trepidation to someone who left with such joy and enthusiasm and belief in your abilities. You have a natural artistic ability - keep believing it - I do!!. xxx
I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this course. It was a real tonic. It was exactly what I needed as the last few weeks in my life had been so difficult and I just needed some "me time". I was lost in the making of the mosaics that I forgot my troubles. I felt so refreshed afterwards. Thank you Lynda for giving me such an uplifting experience. Your enthusiasm was contagious.
Mandy Ransome - - #17527
Response from Creating Mosaics:Thank you for a great review Mandy. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your day and found it a "real tonic" I know that you left that day so happy and eager to make more mosaics, so I hope you continue to have some more "me time." Best wishes. x
Highly recommend this Mosaic Course had a really enjoyable day. Learnt so much from Lynda who is such a good teacher on Mosaics gave us clear instructions. I did not know anything about mosaics and learnt so much in that one day. Lovely bright studio with everything you need, beautiful selection of ceramics and tiles a huge range of materials. if you are thinking about it just book it. I give this Mosaic Course 10 - 10 real value for money. I would recommend to anyone looking for a creative day out. Fantastic experience . Thank you Lynda.
