The sculpture mosaic course was relaxed and enjoyable, as are all Kate's courses. It was explained clearly how to use the materials we hadn’t used before and then over the two days Kate was very attentive to us all but gave us plenty of time to work at our own pace, which I think is the best kind of learning. The group were pleasant and I enjoyed seeing everyone's pieces develop with our different styles.

I did this course with my sister and I have to say we had a wonderful time. Kate was great, she was there when you needed her but happy to let you get on with it at the same time. Learnt lots more beyond the basics of mosaicing as the butterfly we made was for the outside. All explained coherently and lots of different materials to choose from. Would highly recommend for a relaxing day out. In a lovely setting too, I will be back.

I have done several courses with Kate, and they have all been excellent. I started as a complete beginner, and she explained things in a simple and straightforward manner, sending me home with a mosaic picture to hang on my wall. Since then I have done several more courses, learning different techniques, and each time I left with something to be proud of. The classes are generally small in number, which means she is able to give one-to-one attention as required, but will leave us to our own devices if that is what we prefer. A lovely lady who knows her craft, and she is generous with tea, coffee and biscuits! Definitely recommended.

I enjoyed this one-day beginners' course a lot. All equipment and materials needed were there, and we had all the time we needed to finish two pieces, whcih was a surprise. Kate gave good advice one-to-one, and sent follow-up notes.

Response from Kate Rattray Mosaic Artist:Thank you Kate for your good review. Best wishes, Kate
Kate's courses are an excellent way to get you started with mosaicing. In a relaxed environment she gives an introduction to techniques before letting you get really hands on with the materials. Tips and advice was given throughout and Kate's always willing to answer questions. She also provides summary notes to reference at home. Ive really enjoyed the 2 courses I've attended and these have both given me the confidence to continue mosaicing at home.
