Steph reviewed: Creative Mosaic Making

"Had an excellent and informative day with Lisa. Really enjoyed the process of mosaic making and very happy with my creations, grouting will take place tomorrow! Lovely workspace, plenty of materials to work with, plus tea and cake! Thank you so much. "

Creative Avenue York responded:

" Thankyou very much Steph. I'm so glad you finally got to create your lovely little cottage scene. I thought the gold/silver sun rays were very effective. Can't wait to see it grouted. Regards, Lisa-marie"

Sonia reviewed: Creative Mosaic Making

"What a lovely day spent mindfully searching through Lisa-Marie’s extensive collection of mosaic tiles and broken crockery bits and bobs. Eventually got some glued down and created a lovely piece of work to take home, but really enjoyed the making process in itself. Lisa-Marie was very knowledgeable and gently guided us throughout the day.. A thoroughly lovely experience. Thank you! "

Creative Avenue York responded:

" So glad you both enjoyed the experience. The tile collecting and sorting is a very enjoyable part of the hobby. I hope you continue to mosaic with your little bits n pieces, it's always lovely when someone brings their own pieces to include. Look forward to seeing the final pieces! Regards, Lisa-marie"

Gemma B reviewed: Mosaic Bees

"Absolutely fantastic!!!! I booked this on a whim - my daughter loves birds so I thought it would be a fun mummy daughter date… I have to say this exceeded my expectations. We had the most wonderful time sorting through broken crockery oohing and aaaahhing at the patterns, sharing ideas, with each of us finding little gems in our ceramic stash that another person would enjoy. It’s the best thing I’ve done with my daughter, we enjoyed it so much we’re talking about buying our own tools and shopping charity shops for beautifully patterned plates together. Lisa is also a great host. I was amply caffeinated throughout and there were even home made buns. We’ll book onto this class again happily."

Creative Avenue York responded:

" Love this!! So pleased that I've tweaked your creative spark and you hope to pursue it. Hunting for bits and pieces and hoarding them is also part of the hobby! Look forward to creating with you again. Lisa-marie."
