Came beautifully packaged with everything I needed to begin straight away. Spent a very happy few hours playing around with the tiles, gluing them down and grouting on the following day. Very happy with my finished item! May buy the other one to do next……
Fantastic kit, really clear instructions and loved making it thank you!
Just loved doing this project. Struggled at the start with the grouting but patience and time got me there. The end product is really lovely. Will probably buy another one!
Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:Thanks for your review, I’m pleased you’re happy with the end result. Yes grouting is not for everyone, especially the first time. It is possible to leave artwork un-grouted if you are happy with how the piece looks after sticking the tiles so bear that in mind for future projects. (It would be essential however for a functional item or hanging in a bathroom area)
Bought it as a present for my friend. She loved it
Email Contact with seller was fantastic too. I gave her the wrong postcode and she contacted me to double check it before posting. She even put a gift tag in the box for me.
Really pleased with the selection and quality of the mosaic tiles, seller communication, instructions and presentation of the box. I enjoyed the process very much and chuffed with the results. Thank you kindly, I think I've caught the mosaic bug!
Lovely kit with very clear and easy to follow instructions. Throughly enjoyable. I think I could easily become addicted!
Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:Thank you Karen, I’m really pleased you enjoyed making this. Yes it is very addictive! Best wishes Julie
As a 50th birthday treat for Nicky we attended what was Julie’s first ‘two to one’ socially distanced mosaic workshop since lockdown. Julie went to great lengths to ensure our safety without it impacting upon our enjoyment of the day, including a lovely lunch outside in the garden. Neither of us had tried mosaic before but with Julie’s excellent coaching style and wide range of beautiful materials, were able to harness our creativity and produce indoor plaques that we were delighted with. We were fully engrossed and the time flew by. A grouting demonstration and detailed take home support, including a YouTube video, extended our enjoyment beyond the workshop. We were thrilled with the finished product and have the day we spent making our first mosaic together etched in our minds as a lovely memory. We both plan to continue to explore this compelling craft and would highly recommend the course. Thank you Julie.
Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:Thank you, it was a pleasure to spend time with you both. Enjoy your artwork! All the best Julie
Very enjoyable session. Good, clear guidance with a relaxed and friendly approach. I'm delighted with my coaster! Would definitely recommend and I intend to return for a day workshop.
Nice environment and Julie is a great tutor giving you all her tips and making sure you get everything you needed from the course.

Lovely relaxed class with Julie. Would recommend and plan to do a full day class next.
My sister and I had a fantastic day creating our first mosaics with Julie. She gave lots of advice and support but also left us to explore our creative sides too. The lunch was delicious and seeing examples of her work in the beautiful workshop was wonderful. I would highly recommend this to anyone who fancies trying their hand and mosaic making with a great teacher!
Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:Many thanks for the review - it was lovely to meet you both. Hope to see you again in the future for some more mosaic making!
My daughter and I worked collaboratively on a mosaic, Julie took this into account and gave us a larger base to work on to. The action of making the mosaic was totally absorbing and helped us to be relaxed and to clear our minds of day to day stress. The process of making something, with our hands was so satisfying, it was really the most enjoyable part of the day. We were very much in the moment and it was both creative and therapeutic.
Julie is an excellent teacher, we had never made a mosaic before but she gave us clear guidance and then encouraged and supported us in the right amounts. Her studio is bright, warm and full of the tiles and equipment needed to inspire. We met some lovely, like minded people and would really recommend this experience.
Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:Thanks for the lovely review. I wonder who will get to keep the mosaic? Good luck with the grouting!
Had a lovely very enjoyable day. Julie is excellent in explaining very clearly and helping learn all the steps of the process. We learnt how to do a mosaic picture from start to finish and took home our finished product. Excellent. Fully recommended.
Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:Thanks for the lovely review. Good luck with the grouting!
I have just finished an ambitious mosaic project that is now a physical reminder of a fantastic trip I took to Africa. Special thanks to Julie for helping me turn my ideas into something really special. I attended a couple of other workshops with Julie prior to starting this course and would highly recommend anything she has on offer! Super creative, relaxed and friendly way to spend your time. Give it a go!!
Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:Many thanks Charlotte. It has been lovely working with you each week and seeing your chimney pot design evolve. I'm sure it will look fab in your courtyard and look forward to seeing the pics. Best of luck with the grouting challenge! Julie
Had a fabulous time today on this course making two beautiful coasters! Had lots of fun and found it very relaxing!!
Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:Many thanks for taking the time to post a review. It was lovely to work with you and I hope you are enjoying your new coasters. Best wishes Julie
I have been on a one day workshop with Julie before and loved it so much I wanted to come back. I had a project planned and although I had a hard time starting off my idea, Julie helped to clarify my plan so that I could achieve my wall plaque. The class is friendly and you can work at your own pace. Julie provides advice and guidance suitable for all levels and I really enjoyed making my end piece.
I would highly recommend any course with Julie Vernon.
Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:Thanks for taking the time to pop on a review. It was great to work with you each week and I look forward to seeing your fabulous slate house number up on the wall! All the best Julie
This is a lovely course. Location was easy to find, lovely little studio, nice light lunch. There were plenty of examples and books for us to reference and lots of lovely materials. Julie led us through the process and gave us help and hints as the day unfolded. Brilliant course. Thank you Julie for you patience.
Response from Julie Vernon Mosaics:Many thanks for your review Karen. Hope to see you again in the future for some more mosaic making. All the best Julie
Amazing day. I booked the day for myself and a friend for her birthday and we had a fab time. Julie is a great teacher, the workshop was planned to perfection and on top of that lunch was lovely. I’ve already had some lovely comments about my work and I only made it yesterday. We are going back in a couple of months to make more advanced projects!
Had a fantastic day with Julie making an outdoor mosaic plaque. Julie offered encouragement and helpful advice and had an amazing range of colours and materials to bring my idea to life. A very hands-on course where we were encouraged to follow our own ideas and try different techniques. Great venue in her light and airy studio. A relaxing lunch which was most welcome - especially the homemade cake 😊. Julie made this a really enjoyable and rewarding day that I'd recommend to anybody wanting to try mosaics or develop their skills.
I would like to say a massive thank you for the amazing mosaic workshop today and providing me with as much assistance as possible when I made my Union Jack. I felt like it was an amazing therapeutic experience which allowed me to express my true creativity and I am now feeling relaxed because of it. Have a lovely rest of the summer!
