"I learnt so much on this course and now have the confidence to make more mosaics of my own. The process is magical. I brought some of my own stones that the kids had collected to add a personal touch. You don’t need to be artistic. The steps are kept simple and help is always to hand. Very relaxing and therapeutic- carefully placing each stone. And the end result brilliant. I would thoroughly recommend anyone giving it a go. "

"What a wonderful, informative course David and Caroline provide. My friend and I attended this day course last Saturday and we enjoyed it very much. David and Carloine are warm friendly people and their knowledge of their craft is boundless. I have always wanted to have a go at making pebble mosaics and to make one with such brilliant artists to help guide me was a real joy, I am looking forward to seeing the finished result. Bear in mind that you will need to collect your mosaic at a later date as the setting adhesives obviously need time to dry out properly. Ilkley is a lovely market town and I am looking forward to having another good lood around it when I go to collect my mosaic. Thank you David and Caroline for running such a wonderful course, you are Stars and your work is Amazing Xx"

"I really enjoyed this opportunity to learn the process involved in making a pebble mosaic. It was a fun day with lots of encouragement and help from mosaic experts David and Caroline. The course is expensive but I received it as a special present and it has been an unforgettable day. It also gave me the skills to try the process for myself at home. Thank you David and Caroline. "
