I really enjoyed this course. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. Everything you needed was supplied. Audrey and her Mum were helpful and supportive throughout. The two hours sped by. I have booked myself in for three further workshops - with grand intentions to produce something more ambitious.
Response from Montet Designs:Hi Marion, I'm really pleased you enjoyed the workshop! I look forward to having you attend my next few workshops and to see what wonderful mosaics you'll create. Thanks! Audrey
This 2 hour workshop is so relaxing the time just flies by.....you get to enjoy good company and Audrey is so friendly and welcoming I have done 2 workshops so far and will be signing up for the next one I highly recommend this workshop.
My first time at the class and really enjoyed it once I got into it. Looking forward to finishing my piece and starting another. Nice atmosphere with friendly people and with refreshments and biscuits kindly provided.
Thoroughly enjoyed the session. Audrey and her mother are wonderful hosts - so helpful with ideas.
Response from Montet Designs:Thanks Su, I'm really pleased you enjoyed your day. It was lovely to have you come back again for another full days session. I look forward to seeing your completed mirror. Audrey x
A friend and I spend a really great morning with Audrey and her Mum who made us all so welcome in Audrey's home. Both ladies are very knowledgable about mosaics and very patiently guided us all to making some far better pieces than I had expected. There were plenty of the tools required for us to use and they had obviously spent a lot of time organising the work table and tiles ready for us to work on.There was a huge range of mosaic available and we were encouraged to take plenty home to finish off our 'masterpieces' . I would strongly recommend this workshop and look forward to booking more myself.
Great workshop, very much enjoyed my first attempt at mosaics!
The class was 2 hours at Audrey's home with a big selection of glass, tiles and beads to get your creative juices flowing. Very relaxed session with just three others in the workshop and Audrey providing inspiration and advice, plus refreshments as you chat and work.
Like a few other student comments, I popped to The Waffle House for lunch and then on to the Verulamium Roman Theatre to make the most of my day.
Hope to attend another session in the future :)
As first time mosaic makers my friend and I attended Audrey's workshop at St. Albans Verulamium Museum in November.
Audrey couldn't have been more supportive and helpful before the workshop/planning my project, during the workshop itself and also after the event (providing materials and advice as I was a bit over ambitious about what I could achieve in the time).
It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and a great location. We can't wait to come again.
Response from Montet Designs:Hi Julia
I really enjoyed my time at the mosaic workshop, Audrey and Morag were on hand all the time to assist and encourage you. I was pleased with my first attempt although I didn’t quite complete it but Audrey gave me enough materials to finish it at home. I would recommend the class to anyone.
This is the second workshop I have attended, and I can honestly say I love every second of the class!... Audrey and her lovely mum are so much fun and are great at advising and helping even newbies like myself. So relaxing and therapeutic... come and give it a go!.. I'm hooked now!
I attended the Mosaic making workshop on Friday 12th May. I have never attended a craft workshop before and can say that I was quite nervous. Audrey soon put me at ease as she was very welcoming, helpful and informative. There was a large range of items to make and plenty of tiles, beads etc to choose from. I found the workshop to be informal, relaxed and very friendly. I would certainly recommend Montet Designs to others and it was very good value for money. I had a fabulous time, thank you.
I recently attended one of Audrey's mosaic workshops with my Mum. It was a present to her for Mother's Day and something creative and fun we could do together. I cannot recommend the workshop enough. It was great fun and we were amazed at what we accomplished in the time under Audrey's tutorage, especially given neither of us had done anything like this before.
Audrey talks you through the process and guides and helps you along the way. She has such a lovely calm and encouraging manner and the atmosphere in the workshop was lovely.
I would definitely recommend it and I will almost certainly look to do another one in the future.
My friend and I attended Audrey's mosaic workshop and thoroughly enjoyed it. Neither of us had ever done anything like this before, but found Audrey and her mum Morag extremely helpful and encouraging. The location was excellent for us and both left saying we would definitely like to do it again.
Really enjoyed learning how to make a mosaic in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Audrey was very supportive and encouraging and very happy to offer help and advice as we all went along. She has a real gift for encouraging others whilst also celebrating peoples individual styles and nurturing these.
A relaxed and enjoyable workshop. Audrey and her mum are very welcoming and give all the guidance you need. There is a great range of tiles and bases to choose from and examples of their work to inspire you. Tea and biscuits too! I am looking forward to finishing my house number at home, knowing that I can contact Audrey for advice if need be. Thoroughly recommend.
Had a lovely birthday morning . There was an excellent selection of tiles and masaics to make and Audrey was really helpful and encouraging. Quick stroll to the Waffle House afterwards for lunch, perfect!
I had such a lovely time at this workshop. Audrey is extremely welcoming and on hand for any queries that I had. She's very knowledgeable about mosaic art and will direct you when you're not quite sure where to go next. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do when I first arrived but I'm so happy with what I came away with. There was such a wide range of tiles to choose from, it was like being in a sweetie shop, I loved it and will definitely be back!
Fantastic class. So nice to have the opportunity to relax and get creative. Audrey is always on hand with advice and tips if needed. Everyone works at their own pace so no pressure trying to keep up.
This is a lovely workshop to attend. It's friendly with a great atmosphere and Audrey will guide you through the process as you explore the materials and create your piece of art. There is a wide choice of tiles to choose from and you really can go for it! I've been a few times now and I love how I can come along and do whatever ever design I feel like doing and have the freedom to do it. Great value for money and I'd definitely recommend it, come have a go.
I had never done any mosaic before, but I really enjoyed this half day course and felt it was very good value. Tea, coffee and materials in plentiful supply and Audrey is on hand to give advice and explain techniques if needed. Many people there had obviously done it before, so she does not necessarily 'teach' everyone, but is on hand for newbies to get you started. I will definitely come again!
A rare opportunity for me to get creative which I very much enjoyed. Audrey brings lots of examples and a great choice of quality materials to inspire. She provides everything you need to explore this medium in whichever way you choose, as well being an invaluable source of friendly and knowledgeable "mosaicing" advice to help you make the most of the session. It was relaxed, friendly, inspiring and a really lovely way to enjoy a morning doing something arty and unique. I am very pleased with my mosaic creation and I'll definitely be back for more ... Thank you.
