"It is rare to find someone who so evidently loves their craft and has the ability to impart their amazing knowledge in a fun and informative way. I started mosaics with Roz a few years ago and have not looked back. Her expertise, encouragement, and patience have sustained me along the way. The group environment is supportive, with the Phoenix Studios providing an idyllic rural setting. If you have ever wanted to try mosaics, Roz's weekend courses will give you the chance to do so in a welcoming, enjoyable environment. "

" Thank you so much, Jane! Looking forward to seeing you create more beautiful mosaics! X"
"Doing mosaics without Roz now would be almost inconceivable. The combination of the Studio, its surroundings, fellow mosaicists, and Roz, has an extraordinary dynamism. Attending a course at the Phoenix Studio is to have a somewhat Zen like experience; and what drives each individual is the subtle and often humorous way which Roz supports and enhances the desire to make interesting and beautiful mosaics. For its regulars and frequent attendees, the mosaic courses have become a family, with newcomers feeling instantly at home; where 'cake o'clock' and lunch are the focal points of the day, before the click of nippers at work resumes. If you're thinking to try a mosaic course, I'd say "don't hesitate"
"Mosaicing is a fascinating past-time and Roz provides not only an excellent introduction to the age-old skill but also encouragement and development for those who’ve been making mosaics for longer. Add to that the delightful and creative environment on offer at Phoenix Studios and a splendid weekend is guaranteed. Thoroughly recommended."
