The mosaic flower pot course was really great and made me get the bug to continue!
Tracey was very welcoming, friendly and informative which gives me the courage to carry on.
There is a wealth of material to choose from and I felt like a kid at Christmas- it was so much fun!

I really enjoyed the garden mosaic course with Tracey. With Tracey's support and guidance I was able to start a project I have been thinking about for a long time and left the course with the confidence to continue. The whole day was really relaxing and Tracey is an excellent teacher, with a huge passion for her craft. If you are thinking about trying mosaics I would really recommend giving it a go.

Response from Tracey Cartledge Artist:

Thank you, Laura. It was exciting to see your project start to take shape. It's one of the most ambitious pieces that a student at one of my workshops has tackled but you certainly have all the skills now and definitely the 'can do' attitude to make an excellent job of it. As I said to everybody on the day, if you need any further help or advice whilst you're finishing the mosaic at home, just get in touch!
All the best,
Tracey

Had a great day in Tracey's workshop just wish the day was longer! Learnt a lot about fixing and grouting and how to cut the tiles. Tracey was very friendly and helpful and I would love to go on another of her courses.

Response from Tracey Cartledge Artist:

Hi Carol
Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to work with you and I'm glad to know that the workshop was a useful learning opportunity. I'd love to see you at another workshop and I'm also looking forward to seeing how your charming blackbird looks once you add in his surroundings.
All the best,
Tracey

I attended the introductory course which was really good. Tracey was very helpful and an excellent teacher. It was good to learn alongside others and the available materials were varied and wide ranging - lots of inspiration. I'm really pleased with the mosaic I've started at the workshop and would recommend Tracey and the course wholeheartedly!

Response from Tracey Cartledge Artist:

Thank you for your review, Helen. It was great to meet you and to see your ideas come to life and develop as you worked out the composition, colour scheme and choice of materials for your mosaic. I think you did an excellent job of it and I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished piece in due course. Well done!

Response from Tracey Cartledge Artist:

Thank you for the lovely review, Rachel. You made a lot of progress in one day and left with two great mosaics, the completed fridge mosaic and your beautifully detailed robin mosaic. I'm really pleased that I'll be seeing you and the robin again at the weekly evening class!

Hi Meg
Thank you for writing such a great review about the Introduction to Mosaic workshop. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the day, as I very much enjoyed it too. It was wonderful to see how quickly you perfected cutting the glass tesserae to the shapes required to create a very satisfying result in your seahorse design. I look forward to seeing the finished mosaic in due course and I'm interested to hear if you go on to make the table top that we discussed. If you need advice at any stage, do get in touch and I'll do my best to help.
Best wishes,
Tracey

A great mosaic course with handy print outs and lots of excellent displays and encouragement. On the day we all made a coaster as well as a large piece which we brought home. Tracey gave us all a goody bag with grout and clear instructions on how to compete our work.
A great day with loads of choice of materials and her zest for makings mosaics is fabulous!

Response from Tracey Cartledge Artist:

Hi Rebecca
Thank you for coming to the Introduction to Mosaic workshop and contributing to a very enjoyable day. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your time at the studio and produced a beautiful mosaic to take away with you. Your enthusiasm to experiment with a variety of different materials resulted in a sumptuous and very attractive rose mosaic, composed in harmonious shades of red. I look forward to seeing how it looks once the background area is finished. Have fun with it!
Best wishes,
Tracey

Jan johnson - - #24922

Extremely enjoyable day at Cakebread Studios with Tracey and Caroline making a glass on glass mandala.

The ladies are both excellent tutors.Very clear and concise instructions and tips and on-going support throughout the day. All necessary tools and equipment were provided along with an extensive range of glass to choose from to make the mandala.

I would definitely recommend this as a fun and creative day. You will learn a lot and have a beautiful piece to take home with you.

Response from Tracey Cartledge Artist:

Hi Jan
Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review and very pleased to hear that you found it a valuable experience. We really enjoyed your company and seeing your design come to life in gorgeous colours and textures of beautiful glass.
All the best,
Tracey

I'm not a complete beginner in this field, I have attended a glass applique workshop before and really enjoyed it. Lots of help and support, plenty of materials to work with and a lively friendly atmosphere. I don't know where the time went and had not finished but was sent home with appropriate materials and tools to finish the job!

Response from Tracey Cartledge Artist:

Hi Margaret,
Thank you for your wonderful review. It was a great pleasure to welcome you to the new studio at Cakebread Workshop and I'm glad that you found my directions so easy to follow. It really is a short walk from Piccadilly Station!
It's already a great compliment that you chose to come along a second time to enjoy this workshop and your latest mosaic mandala is looking superb. We look forward to seeing the final result in due course.
Thanks again for taking part in the workshop and for taking the time to write a review.
Kind regards,
Tracey
