The tutor was very dedicated to teaching this course. Very knowledgable and gave everybody equal amounts of her time to give them help and advice. I would willingly do another course with her.

Wonderful course, as ever, with the London School of Mosaics. Our instructor was very professional and knowledgeable yet focused on nurturing and stretching individuals. My second course here, and I intend to become a regular!

An inspiring and enjoyable course. Lots of design ideas and technical advice. Teacher and fellow students enthusiastic and helpful. Satisfying to create something beautiful in just a weekend.

I was keen to learn more about smalti mosaics. This course was informative and I was able to use a hammer and hardie. The materials/tools and facilities were of a good standard and refreshments were provided throughout the course. Instruction was of a high standard and the trainer was friendly and approachable. I would recommend this course for anyone with an interest in mosaics and a desire to learn and improve. 10/10
