Gemma B reviewed: Mosaic Birds

"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."

"Lovely afternoon spent making a mosaic bird with Lisa-Marie, there's a huge stash of mosaic supplies to choose from to enable you to make a unique piece and Lisa-Marie is so friendly and shows you all you need to do plus she offers tea and cake!! Highly recommended and suitable for all the family "

" Thankyou so much Sally! Your pinky-purple bird was beautiful and now I need to make one for myself! Hope to create with you again. Lisa-marie."
