A wonderful afternoon revisiting something I haven't done for years. Has reminded me how much i enjoyed mosaics. Small groups mean adequate time for all the help and support you may need. I’d thoroughly recommend it!

Marie was an excellent host and her passion for the craft is evident from her workshop and words. She spent enough time walking me through the various techniques and options, and discussed the ideas with me rather than giving me a predetermined design to work through - which is much appreciated! She was available throughout the session, helping me where required while giving me space to work through the project. Definitely recommend it to anyone keen on getting a flavour of mosaic art.

I had a really enjoyable afternoon and the tutor was very welcoming and on hand all the time to help demonstrate the techniques. I am an artist but it was my first time using mosaics and the afternoon certainly made me want to try it again. I thoroughly recommend the class for anyone who wants to get creative!

I cant really praise this workshop enough. As a birthday treat for my mum it was perfect. Marie was attentive, patient and encouraging. She went out of her way to explain each stage of the process so we could learn, made sure we had fun as well as managed to create wonderful art. Though we ran over Marie didnt complain or make us feel rushed and she even gave us supplies to go home with. Im a convert to mosaic but also to MPP! If youre thinking about joining a session - do it!

My friends and I absolutely loved this workshop. It was such a fantastic way to spend the afternoon. We were all total beginners and our tutor, Marie-Paule, was excellent. She was very attentive, patient and adapted her approach to suit each of our needs. We thoroughly enjoyed learning the whole process and managed to finish our masterpieces which we absolutely love. We highly recommend this workshop; very calming, therapeutic and great fun.
