So so thrilled to have spent the day at a one day workshop at Mango Mosaics! Whether it’s the first time you’ve done a mosaic, or have done a few trial and error projects like me, you will learn so many tips and tricks from the Uber talented Caroline Jariwala! We all walked away with our own design she so patiently guided each of us on: from concept, to how to nip and cut tiles, to best adhesives for the job, to grouting the finished project to hang on a wall! Delicious lunch and cake were provided, as well as several hours of fun and inspiring conversation! I only wished I lived closer so I could come more often, but I will be back, that’s for sure.

I did my first course with Caroline last week and was nervous as I'm not very confident about doing things like this. I really enjoyed the day with lovely participants and Caroline was great helping each of us achieve something so different and unique. Caroline was a super host too keeping us supplied with drinks and food. Well worth it!

Had a fantastic day with Caroline. I had been quite nervous about doing this as I am really not artistic, Caroline was full of encouragement,help and support and I achieved more than I ever thought was possible. It was a great day and I would not hesitate to say ‘give it a go’. I went with my daughter in law and we are both keen to do more at home. A huge thank you to Caroline.

Had a fab day making a mosaic piece with Caroline, she's generous sharing her skills and home. Everywhere in her house is inspiration and pieces of china from my youth used in amazing ways! She is chatty and friendly and really makes everyone feel they can do it.

Just back from a really wonderful day in Caroline's studio. She is such an inspiring teacher and I will definitely book to do another day's course with her in the future.
She advises and helps you in a relaxed and supportive way and her studio is bright and inviting.
Hesitate no longer. Book yourself on a course and I am sure you will not regret it.
The only sad thing - the day is over.

I went on a taster course many years ago and now a repeat customer of Caroline’s. Having attended at least 6 courses if not more. Although an avid mosaicer myself I always learn something new, a new tip, a new brand or technique. Caroline’s enthusiasm, knowledge and chocolate fridge cake is always a draw.

If you love mosaics, then you must do yourself a favour and book with Caroline Jariwala. I did her 1 day workshop in Adelaide, South Australia and it was brilliant. She is a wonderful, funny story-teller and skilled teacher able to cater for all skill levels. I learnt new techniques which has improved my art practice.
Don't miss out on a chance to work with Caroline !

What a fabulous course! Caroline is so enthusiastic and encouraging to all her students. Her own work is astounding and her home and garden are filled with wall upon wall of her wonderful creations.
The atmosphere on the course was very friendly and we were all inspired to produce some beautiful pieces of mosaic to take home. Having learned the basic skill it's something that I feel I could confidently do at home now having purchased a couple of simple tile cutting tools.
Caroline provided a really tasty lunch and hot drinks and cake were available all day.
If you are wondering, 'Shall I book this course?' stop wondering and do it, you won't regret it!

Fabulous day, Caroline is an excellent teacher full of encouragement and patience. Lovely time in her studio surrounded by her inspirational art. I am an experienced Mosaic artist yet always still learning and came away itching to try out new techniques and materials

An absolutely fabulous day. Caroline provides inspiration, education, entertainment and food! I came away with the knowledge and tools I needed to carry on playing with mosaic and a lovely (in my eyes) piece of finished art to show off to family and friends. Fabulicious.

What fabulous day! Caroline’s enthusiasm is infectious and her teaching style puts you totally at ease. Her home is a treasure trove of her own work and collections and is and inspiring place to work. I was amazed at what we all produced and I will definitely be going back for more marvellous mosaic makery. Thanks Caroline.

Absolutely fantastic day! Caroline is a superb teacher and brilliant artist. Just walking through her home is totally inspirational and feeds your own creativity.

A lovely day to try something new!
Caroline took us through the rudiments of cutting tiles and set us going with what we each needed to create our own unique piece. We had help all along the way and timely demonstrations of each stage.
We had a lovely soup and rolls lunch in her beautiful garden, and tea and cake!
I didn't quite finish but that was no problem as I came away with what I needed to complete my piece.
A grand day!

A great day, the course was well planned and constructive. Caroline was an inspirational tutor who adapted to the 5 people on the course and helped each individual as needed.
Lunch was provided and was an excellent home made soup.

Caroline is an amazing and inspirational artist and it's wonderful to see how she has used mosaic in her home. I'd seen images of her work in Chile, and the projects she has completed over here, and also the very helpful YouTube videos, what a woman! If you go to one of her classes you can be sure of success as she guides you through the design process and the shaping of pieces for your own work. It's much more than that though, because you're also encouraged to have fun while she keeps her artists eye on you, giving just the right advice and help.

Loved the workshop. Caroline is very generous in sharing her skills and ideas. Brilliant work room filled with loads of goodies to inspire you. Learn about the correct materials to use and glue, grout etc. Then you can start to create your own design knowing it will be made to last. Small informal group setting. Soup, tea and like minded people. Highly recommend this course.
