Maker's bio

My name is Laura Barnes and I have my own studio and run all my mosaic courses from there. With 26 years experience in commercial mosaic crafts, including working with the National Trust and Crafts Council, I now offer tutoring to small groups. I am based in Todmorden, West Yorkshire and have a fantastic mix of mosaic materials and tools for any type of mosaic project. I run classes in mosaic, leaded stained glass and silver clay.

Cath Stone reviewed: Half day mosaic workshops with Laura Barnes.

"Fantastic Sunday afternoon spent in Laura’s workshop. Created our very first mosaic pieces, both now hooked and can’t wait to try more. Three hours of total relaxation, very absorbing and from the first seconds of drawing out a design template you can feel your worries just melting away. Thank you Laura. Cath and Stacey"

Laura Barnes Crafty Fox Studios responded:

" Cath and Stacey, you are so welcome! The hours flew by. You might like the cutting glass for mosaic afternoon... have a nosey when you've got a minute. All the very best to you both for your future mosaic crafting. Laura. "

Lynne reviewed: Full Day Mosaic For Outdoors on slate with Laura Barnes.

"Laura was a wonderful teacher, really supportive with ideas and techniques. I learnt way more than I thought I would and have a fantastic piece off outdoor mosaic to show for it - far better than I could have imagined for a complete beginner. I had a lovely,relaxed day. I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in mosaics or wanting to try something new. Thank you Laura"
