Maker's bio

With a new baby, I felt I needed a bit of me time so booked on a one day mosaic course at my local adult community college. It changed my life! An ancient craft, I was enthralled by its potential to create art as well as decorative functional items for the home. I found it totally absorbing, spending time when I could learning more from other mosaicists. Twenty plus years on, I now love to share my passion and enjoy seeing my students become equally enthusiastic - I find it so rewarding.

Louise reviewed: Beginners Mosaic Workshops near Exeter, Devon

"Lovely relaxed beginners mosaic course. I was one of 4 students. Good range of materials to create a practice piece and a linear mosaic. Denny gave helpful and relaxed instruction, and well as supplying great coffee and cake! I may sign up for the intermediate course! "

" Thank you, Louise. Good to know you found the day relaxing and that maybe you’ve caught the mosaic bug! Hope to see you again and will let you know dates for the intermediate mosaic day. Denny"

Tracey Howe reviewed: Beginners Mosaic Workshops near Exeter, Devon

"Denny runs a brilliant course for learning how to begin your mosaic journey. Unhurried, informative and practical guidance for you to create your own pieces that are so individual. Alongside, homemade CAKE and a great small group of people it is a lovely day but potentially an ongoing addiction xx Thanks Denny (and the gorgeous Daisy 🐾) "

MosaicXandMe responded:

" Super speedy review, Tracey, thank you. And delighted to know you enjoyed the day - and found your new hobby! Your little bird was very impressive and I look forward to seeing it once grouted and in the frame. Hope to see you again. Denny x"

Julia Ford reviewed: Beginners Mosaic Workshops near Exeter, Devon

"Denny is an excellent tutor and a very welcoming host. Lots of coffee, homemade cake and patience all day long. The course was informative and instructive with an extensive (amazing) supply of materials available enabling us to create an art piece to be proud of. We were given thorough notes to take away with our creations. I highly recommend this course but be careful Denny will definitely pass on the mosaic bug so you won’t want to stop!! "

MosaicXandMe responded:

" Fab review, Julia, thank you 🤗. So glad you enjoyed your day - and the cake! You certainly can be proud of your piece - it was lovely. I look forward to seeing you again in the new year for the intermediate course. Thanks again. Denny x "
