I’ve just had the most inspiring day learning basis mosaic skills with the incredibly talented Adela.
The studio is adorned with a stunning selection of her work, it’s bright, airy and completely set up to be a covid safe environment while remaining a comfortable and welcoming place to be.
With just myself and one other student there was ample work space and I felt safe and relaxed, a rare feeling during this pandemic!
Adela is a fantastic tutor giving clear instructions and information from her wealth of knowledge and is really approachable when asking questions etc.
You can expect to leave this course feeling relaxed and inspired with a mosaic to take home and a desire to make more!
I can’t recommend this course highly enough and I really hope there is more to come because I’ll definitely be back!!
A brilliant introduction to mosaicing (is that a verb?) from Adela. She's warm, friendly, informative and encouraging. You can bring your own design to work from or choose one of hers, making it stress-free and enjoyable. The walls are covered in her amazing mosaics but somehow that was inspiring not intimidating. Me and my daughter left feeling very happy with our day's work.
To say Adela is self taught, she is very knowledgeable about all aspects of mosaics and happily gave advice on tiles, adhesives and bases. Her class was relaxed and fun with plenty of broken crockery to choose from and lots of wooden shapes. Her art work that adorns her studio is fabulous. If you are new to mosaics or have already dabbled I recommend gathering some friends and booking up quickly......
I forgot to review this workshop at the time! Joined Adela in August for the bunting workshop and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was great to make something for the garden. Having done workshops for indoor mosaics with her before, Adela is a fantastic mosaic artist and teacher, I learnt a new technique and went away with fabulous bunting - thanks!
Myself and my friend had a completely amazing afternoon with Adela making mosaic pendants and learning all the techniques. Totally recommend the mosaic pendant and earring workshop making course 100%, can’t wait to make more soon. Thanks for the great experience x
Thanks for a great day Adela. Where did the time go?! Really enjoyed the day and very pleased with my mosaic tile. Thanks for your relaxed but informative and helpful approach. Would definitely recommend a day course. Bye for now. Di Willmott.
Mum and I had an excellent morning of crafting with Adela. Adela was patient and supportive throughout and the hours just flew by. We both made a bee and a bird and were very pleased with our final result. Looking forward to grouting this weekend (all supplied and demonstrated).
If we return to Devon for a holiday we will definitely complete another course. Thanks Adela.
What a wonderful course, the day passed by in what felt like an hour! Adela is an excellent teacher and an incredible artist and I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in mosaics. Thanks!
Had a fun and creative day with Adela. I have always wanted to do a course in Mosiacs and when I read about Adela’s course, I thought it was ideal and I was not disappointed with the course. I liked that Adela gave information sheets not only on the different styles of mosiacs and instructions but included where to go to buy own mosaic bits and pieces. Adela was very encouraging and helpful with tips on my mosaic. Would definitely go back again.
My family and I had a brilliant morning making mosaics. My 2 children are 11 and 13. They loved it! Getting to break china plates and make them into something beautifully unique was fab. Adela is so knowledgable, friendly and helpful - she made us feel at ease and gave us the confidence to have a go. I would recommend to anyone who would like to do something a bit different.
This is a technique that I have never tried before and loved every minute. Adela was knowledgeable, welcoming & helpful throughout & her studio very cosy & relaxing. It was fascinating to see everyone’s finished pieces at the end of the morning, all completely unique and very pretty. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to try something new. Thank you Adela for a lovely morning.
This course was great. Adela took us through different mosaic laying concepts, gave us a chance to practice and taught us how to cut glass tiles into varied shapes. She was very generous with the beautiful materials. We came away with our own gorgeous individual creations to treasure. And a thirst for more mosaic adventures. Thank you Adela!
So this was my third time on one of Adela's courses, and once again, I had the most fun. I came away with three "bunts", each with a flower design. Adela is a fantastic, patient tutor and I highly recommend all of her courses.
I really enjoyed my day in your craft centre. It has given me the knowledge and confidence to attempt more pieces of work at home. Your studio contains some lovely examples of your work to inspire everyone. The atmosphere was relaxed and informal with delicious biscuits, but at the same time you managed to impart a great deal of knowledge and encouragement. The day more than exceeded my expectations, thank you.
The time flew during this morning! I had such a lovely time making two mosaics. Adela explained the techniques and tool use really well and gave help and encouragement without being too directional. I will most definitely attend one of her other workshops on offer.
