I can recommend Sue’s courses wholeheartedly, whether you’re a complete beginner or have some mosaic skills already. As a complete novice, I thoroughly enjoyed my first one-day course, so much so that I then enrolled into one of Sue’s longer blocks of classes, so that I could tackle something a little more ambitious. And I’m still a regular 18 months later! Sue ‘guides’ you towards the end product through suggestions and encouragement, whilst letting everyone’s individuality shine through, which I think is a key skill as a teacher. Sue’s classes are relaxed and friendly and everyone is encouraged to work at their own pace and to develop their own style.
Sue visited in person very quickly and was very helpful exchanging creative and skill based ideas. I found it very easy to trust in Sue’s professional ability and skills. I’m extremely happy with the mosaic step which is a ‘show stopper’! We get daily compliments from passers.
I was bought a voucher as a gift and I LOVED my mosaic course! I had no previous experience and Sue has a way of bringing out your inner artist. She is friendly and encouraging, offering guidance and support when needed, or perfectly happy to allow you to go it alone if that is your preference.
Sue has run weekend courses at my home in York for friends and for my workplace colleagues as a ‘team away day’. Sue’s style is informal, and she is keen to let people develop their own ideas with her encouraging coaching style. We always have a fun and sociable time, and under Sue’s experienced guidance have produced some fabulous pieces for homes and gardens. Many people return for more and there’s an increasing number of us getting hooked!
I had a one day one-to-one introduction to mosaics with Sue. I learned all the basics to get me started in a fun, creative and encouraging environment. I’m now working on my own mosaic.
The mosaic brings a great splash of colour and life to an otherwise gloomy entrance lobby. It is something that will bring pleasure to residents for years to come.
The mosaic is just fantastic. Taking part in this project was a relaxing process and very therapeutic. I feel a great sense of achievement every time I see it.
WOW. I love, love, love it! Our mosaic is just amazing. The colours are perfect and catch the light so well in the garden studio. Very happy.
Sue listened to our ideas and enhanced them. She gave us options for the design and listened to our feedback. We are absolutely thrilled with the finished product and hope that we are able to commission more work in the future.
