We had a great day at the Valley Craft Studio making our mosaics. Very relaxing experience and Fiona has struck the perfect balance between helping the students and letting them enjoy the experience of learning something new. Endless cuppas and lovely cake too. Would highly recommend!
Response from Valley Craft Studio:Thanks for you glowing review Tessa. Your family of birds was beautiful today and I am looking forward to grouting it this week. It was lovely to meet you and your Mum - I had a great day with you both x
I had a lovely day with my cousin she was over from France for a couple of days and wanted to do an activity and learn something she could take back to France with her she did extremely well. Fiona is very patient and a very competent teacher I would highly recommend this course. Fiona also had made a cake (which was delicious).
Had a lovely day cutting tiles and making a mosaic. Great tutor, really helpful and tea and cake lovely.
Studio lovely spacious and bright and lots of materials to choose from. I would recommend this course highly. Great value for money too.
I thoroughly enjoyed the day
Fiona was very friendly and welcoming and keen that we all completed a piece of work, so the day was very much hands on from the beginning
Workshop was comfortable and very well equipped and we were very well looked after throughout the day
I did complete my mosaic with grateful thanks to the tuition and advice from Fiona, but we were encouraged and supported to make our own choices
Will be back for more as this introduction day has definitely inspired me to learn and do more
Really enjoyed the day. Fiona was very welcoming and the environment was lovely. I managed to finish my mosaic on this one day course and have been inspired to continue with this hobby. I would thoroughly recommend this course and this tutor.
My mum and I had a great few hours making coasters!
Learnt a new skill and had a few giggles, plenty of tea and cake too!
Would definitely recommend.
My mum and I took this course today, and brought home two coasters each which we were really pleased with! Fiona is very patient and helpful, going through the various types of tiles and how to cut them, loads of colour choices as well- would recommend this course!
Lovely day doing a craft I haven't tried before. Fiona was a great teacher and also grouted our finished picture for collection the next day. Would definitely recommend. We came away with a lovely mosaic picture to keep and treasure.
Fiona also made us plenty of tea and coffee during the day and a delicious cake. Not to mention all the rhubarb from her garden she gave me.
My friend and I were given a evening with Fiona making a set of coasters, we had a brilliant time and so much fun.
Thank you so much x
A thoroughly enjoyable evening. Fiona was a fantastic teacher and helped with all aspects of the mosaics - from design to finish. I had no previous experience and had great fun choosing the tiles and learning how to cut and fit them. An inspiring and relaxed evening with two coasters accomplished too.
I really enjoyed making the coasters, the whole process was explained well and no previous experience with this medium is needed. Once I decided on my design and chose the colours of tiles I wanted to use (there are a lot!) I found the process very therapeutic, cutting the tiles to size and then fitting them on a little jig saw puzzle of my very own! Fiona was a great teacher and her own designs are a great inspiration! I highly recommend this course!
We had a brilliant evening at the Night on the Tiles. Fi explained really well how to cut the mosaics, possible designs and helped us when needed. She had all the colours you could want in different shades. We both made a few coasters each which my mum and I were so chuffed with. We’d both recommend Fi’s classes and that evening course.
it was my first time I'd ever done mosaic tiling, & I was very impressed with my day, the teaching was great , lovely venue & resources to use.
Found it very relaxing & therapeutic.
Also very pleased with my finished tile .
Response from Valley Craft Studio:I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself and managed to relax Emma . I can't wait to help you with the sausage dog mosaic you were planning and hope that Maddison will come with you next time.
I took my mum on one of Fiona's Mosaic course in February and we both had a great time. Fiona couldn't have been more welcoming. With her guidance we both managed to complete our projects on the one day course. Having seen our mosaics my sisters are now booked on!
Despite the snow the studio was lovely and warm plus hot drinks and cake were plentiful! Thank you
Response from Valley Craft Studio:Thanks for the lovely review Mark. I hope you and your Mum are pleased with your creations and I look forward to welcoming your sisters soon. Fiona.
