Great day. Adela introduced the whole topic and basic principles behind mosaic in a clear and calm manner. She guided us through the day in a reassuring way, giving top tips and guiding as appropriate, but equally letting us be creative in our own unique ways.
We were surrounded by Adele’s own work which was beautiful to look at and very inspirational. The whole creative day was just fab and very therapeutic, the rest of your busy life is just forgotten about as you are too busy deciding which beautiful tile to “keystone” or “opus tessellatum”!
Really would recommend Adele’s courses to all.
Thank you Adela :)

Went to this course apprehensively as I am far from artistic. Adela was the perfect teacher and she made it all sound achievable, which it was. We were all put at our ease in a very supportive and relaxed environment, with plenty of coffee and very nice biscuits! I was surprisingly pleased with what I produced under Adela’s guidance and I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product when I have grouted it at home. Thoroughly recommended for a day’s escape from real life.

This mosaic day was lots of fun - Adela is super knowledgeable and passionate about mosaicking. This was the second time I have been on one of her courses - I did the full day mosaic course a few months ago and couldn't resist this one too :) I will definitely be back!

I would throughly recommend Adela’s one day mosaic class, I initially went in February enjoyed it so much I had a second day in March. Adela is brilliant, she has lots of experience to share. Her workshop is fab with a lovely log burner, in a great location. Tea, coffee and cake go down really well while you are working. It’s so surprising that the day goes so quickly once you have chosen what you would like to mosaic, and you do get to complete your mosaic project the same day. Thank you Adela for bringing out my creativity side.

So enjoyed this course - have never done mosaics before, but Adela explained everything that we needed to know. I was so pleased with the result and am inspired to try something larger. Thoroughly recommended- and the cookies were lovely! Thank you 😊

Thank you Adela for a lovely introduction to mosiac making - the course was fun, entertaining, well prepared and allowed enough time for me to complete a project (apart from the grouting but that needs to be done 24hrs later and we were given a demo and the materials to finish). The choice of patterns to use were varied and very flexible to each persons preferences and the colour schemes they chose. Location was easy to find - only downside the tea room we had planned to visit afterwards had closed when we emerged clutching our mosaics!

I loved the workshop given by Adela. Fortunately (unfortunately) the others joining us had to cancel so I had a one-to-one which was brilliant, given I have never done mosaic before. Adela was very thorough in showing me how to work, explaining how tools work, the different types of mosaic etc - which was much appreciated. She left me to do my own thing, luckily I had examples of what she produced, but I just had to ask and she helped me. She is very friendly and approachable, I felt ever so comfortable despite being clueless and to top it off said I done a grand job! I recommend giving this class a go, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks again Adela.

I enjoyed this course so much, Adela is a great teacher, I always thought mosaic was too complicated for me. After a blissful 4 hours of being engrossed in cutting and sticking, and with her clear instructions and encouragement, I left really amazed at what I'd achieved. She's inspired me to have a go at home and mosaics have been ordered! Thank you so much

Both Andrea and I really enjoyed our course with Adela, after initially providing a good introduction and background into styles of mosaic along with plenty of ideas and inspiration we found ourselves fully immersed in a creative bubble for 4 hours. We proudly left clutching our mosaic masterpiece, together with grout and instructions to complete at home......only criticism, the time passed far too quickly.

A really informative beginners class into mosaics. Adela goes into a brief history of the art and how it can be used creatively today. With many of her own examples to inspire you around her shop, you won’t be stuck for ideas when it comes to making your own designs. I could have easily spent the whole day there. Well worth it if you are curious about mosaics.

Thoroughly enjoed the experience. Small intimate group. Very friendly tutor who was obviously passionate about her art and so talented. Happy with the piece i made - looking forward to the grout experience to come later this week! Thank you for a great workshop - will definitely recommend your workshops.

Brilliant tutor - very knowledgeable and passionate about mosaics. I never knew there was so much to mosaicking. It was a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. I would love to have a go at the ceramic workshop that Adela also holds.

Response from Moon Hare Studio:Thank you for your kind review. It was lovely to spend the day with you.
I really enjoyed the course! It was really informative and very interesting, and I really felt like I learned a new skill. I will definitely be doing more.
My only thoughts were that I think it should be an hour longer so that we could have completed our designs.

Response from Moon Hare Studio:Thanks you for your lovely review. It was lovely to meet you, I have thought about your feedback and I will be offering longer, all day mosaic workshops in the future. I hope you can come to one!
