As someone new to the world of mosaics, I wasn't sure what to expect. I needn't have worried. Thanks to the gentle coaching and expert advice of Jackie, I had a great day at her workshop in the tranquil setting of Blackwell. In fact, I enjoyed myself so much, I ended up going back a second and third time! The course is structured so that you're able to walk away with something you've created on the day - and, if you don't finish, Jackie bends over backwards to help make sure you get your piece completed. The best tribute I can give her is that it helped to fire a real interest in me, and a real desire to carry on producing new mosaics. Oh, and just so you know, Jackie does a fine lemon drizzle cake that she wheels out for tea breaks!!!
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Thank you Mark for such a lovely review and I’m really pleased to hear that I may have encouraged you to make more mosaics. I would love to see your work at some point and as you know I’m always here to offer advice. It has been especially nice to receive your review at a time when I cannot currently hold any workshops and it’s made me look forward to the day when I can restart them. Thank you 😊
This workshop was given for my 70th birthday by my sisters who came with me. It was brilliant. We all did hearts and enjoyed the day immensely. Jackie is an inspirational teacher and helped us to create the perfect mosaics. Highly recommend this course.
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Hi Pam
I don’t often get to try a new craft, so this was a real treat. Jackie’s workshop is very well equipped, there’s lots of materials to choose from and freely available. Tea and cake also in plentiful supply. Jackie is knowledgable, very helpful, and I can’t recommend this highly enough. A great day out.
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Thank you Teresa for your lovely review. Jackie
This turned out to be one of my best days ever! I was full of trepidation because I am not artistic and I had received a voucher as a present. Jacky is a brilliant teacher, her workshop is spacious and well stocked with beautiful colourful mosaic tiles. She guided me expertly through the process and gave help as it was needed. She provided copious amounts of tea and one of the nicest cakes I have had in ages. Best of all I finished up with 2 lovely mosaic pieces that I shall treasure. I would recommend this as an excellent day for all ages. Thank you Jacky
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Thank you Linda for your lovely review. It was an absolute pleasure working with you. Jackie
My partner bought me a voucher for myself and a friend to have a day experience making a mosaic with Jackie.
We had so much fun and we both enjoyed the experience so much we will be going back and taking more friends with us.
It was a fabulous day and there was cake!!!!
Jackie was lovely and I would definitely recommend the experience.
My mum and I attended Jackie’s mosaic workshop and had a fantastic time. She was very helpful and made us feel very welcome.
There was a great selection of materials and she encourages everyone to make a unique mosaic. The day passed really quickly and we all ended up with amazing pieces. I would recommend this to anyone whatever your ability. The end results are great and it’s interesting to see the different stages and how it takes shape throughout the day.
As a community activist I hope this allows me to speak for the residents that live here. Some time ago I came up with the idea of a community mosaic. Jackie Nash was recommended to me by someone that had been to a workshop. What a surprise, nothing was to much trouble to Jackie for beginners like us; everything was explained, how the piece would work etc. It was without doubt the best workshop we have ever done. We as a community are now busy doing our own mosaic.
Thank you so much Jackie.
I had the best day ever!
Jackie was a brilliant tutor and I came away totally buzzing, exhausted and inspired.
She is obviously very talented herself but she explained everything simply and succinctly. She was very understanding as I was a complete beginner.
I can thoroughly recommend Jackie’s course and will definitely return in the future for more amazing inspirations.
I also thought it was great value for money.
Thank you Jackie I had a fantastic day.
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Hi Di
Absolutely loved the workshop and would recommend to anyone whether a beginner or having some knowledge. With the help of Jackie I made a sunflower mosaic. The choice of materials are amazing and I can’t wait to book another workshop with her.
The home made lemon drizzle cake was lovely, in fact during the course of the day it was so good I had two slices!
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Thank you so much for your lovely review. Always a pleasure to receive feedback about my course. Keep In touch. Jackie
I requested this course as a birthday present and was delighted with it. Jackie’s positive, encouraging approach and wealth of expertise was inspiring and she gave excellent advice which made my project achievable. Her generosity, kindness and the calm atmosphere she created meant that I learnt lots and was pleased with my finished owl mosaic! I would thoroughly recommend this for anyone - even those who, like me, feel that they are not naturally artistic - for a brilliant day, pleasing results and some toothsome cake. I hope to come back for another course soon.
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Hi Elizabeth
We came to Jackie for something a bit different as a present for my Nan's birthday. As someone who’s not particularly arty I can say that this workshop is so much fun for people at all levels and Jackie is so helpful and clearly shows a high level of skill in her trade. We were all really impressed with what we had managed to create in the end and I would definitely consider taking part again.
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Thank you Jessica. I’m really glad you enjoyed the course. 😊
For our works Christmas outing this year we all spent a really lovely day at this beautiful mosaic workshop. Jackie is a very talented and creative teacher providing a supportive and fun filled experience. Her workshop is filled with a huge stock of beautiful mosaic tiles alongside various pieces of her amazing work. As well as helping us with ideas and assisting in the construction of our mosaics, Jackie was also the perfect host providing plenty of coffee accompanied by her delicious homemade cake. I would definitely recommend her workshop for a fab day out.
I spent a lovely day at jackies workshop with my work friends. Jackie has a fabulous choice of materials and her creative skills are amazing. We all made great mosiac pieces with the help of Jackie. We had lots of lovely cake and refreshments. I would truly recommmend this as a fun day to spend with your friends or family. I would most definitely go again. Thank you Jackie you offer a brilliant experience.
I had such a wonderful day, we booked for a Christmas party, such a lovely day spent with Jackie at her beautiful workshop. Jackie was extremely helpful and helped me create a fabulous star which is going in my hallway. It was a lovely relaxing environment, and Jackie made some delicious cakes for us all. I can’t recommend this mosaic course enough. I can’t wait to go back, this would make a fantastic gift.
We booked a day mosaic workshop for our work's Christmas get together. It was absolutely brilliant! Jackie is a very knowledgeable and experienced teacher as well as being loads of fun and the maker of delicious cake! We were well supplied with drinks and cake all day. It was great to learn a new skill and produce something beautiful to take home. I thoroughly recommend the workshop. It is good value for money and fantastic as a team building exercise. A 5 star day!
What a wonderful day! Jackie is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher. I have little craft ability yet came out of Jackies workshop with an excellent piece of artwork. Jackie is so creative she makes it seem easy. Her workshop has a huge variety of materials to choose from which makes anything in your mind become a reality. On top of all that I found Jackie to be so friendly and welcoming. She offered a constant stream of cups of tea all day and even home made cake, she just makes you want to go back again and again!!
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Hi Kate
What a fabulous experience. I booked myself and two friends to attend one of Jackie's courses, and what an absolute ball we had. Jackie was so friendly and approachable from start to finish, making us feel really welcome and very relaxed. She inspired us with lots of ideas, and was constantly on hand to help us, except when she was bringing us the most wonderful banana cake, scrumptious !! I can't thank Jackie highly enough, and would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who wants to step out of the stresses of life, and take a day for themselves. I didn't believe I could make something I would be really proud of, with Jackie's help, I now know I can.
I did the one day course with Jackie and thoroughly enjoyed myself. In fact I am now hooked on mosaic making! I went back for the 2 day course and now I'm making my onw mosaics at home with growing confidence. The atmosphere in Jackie's workshops is relaxed and fun, she is there to help with ideas, practical tips, whatever is needed really. The refreshments are top quality too!
I am so glad I did the workshops and now have a new hobby for life- THANK YOU xx
Response from Jackie Nash Art:Thank you for such a lovely review. It was a pleasure to work with you and i’m so pleased your now making mosaics at home. Jackie 😊
Rose, Helen and I enjoyed a day in Jackie's wonderful workshop as a celebration of Rose's special birthday! At the beginning of the day, Jackie gave us an introduction to mosaics and helped us plan our designs. There was a huge choice of coloured tiles for the artwork and the equipment was good. Once we got 'stuck in', it was a relaxing way to spend a Monday. We took our own lunch and drink which Jackie served when we were ready. There were plenty of other drinks available. Thank you Jackie!
Had a lovely relaxing day with Jackie creating a mosaic. I had no idea what I was doing but still managed to produce a lovely mosaic that has pride of place on my mantelpiece. Plenty of cups of tea and lovely home made cake to keep us going through the day. I would thoroughly recommend a days course. Thank you for a lovely day Jackie.
