Such a great day. Giulia's studio is a lovely space in Central London and the pace of the workshop was just right. She was so helpful and it was fun to get an insight into her work

Guilia clearly explained how to use the tools and create an amazing mosaic! I didn't believe I could do it but was really impressed with the result. The day was very relaxed and informal; the venue light and airy and all in all a very enjoyable day.

What a great course. I had tried some mosaicing before, but I learned so much about how to work out the design, how to cut and position the tiles, how to achieve a good finish. It was a great day and Giulia was super friendly - and an amazing artist. Thank you!

Giulia was very warm and welcoming. She provided clear instructions and was very patient encouraging us to make the best mosaic we could. There was a beautiful array of mosaic tiles on offer to choose from. Refreshments were available and Giulia kept us going with regular tea and coffee. Her studio is bright and cheerful with lots of stunning examples of her work. The time passed so quickly. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and the company of Giulia and the other participant and highly recommend the one day direct method mosaic making course!

We created two mosaics on the day with Guilia who was really informative and patient. Our creativity has been stimulated and I am already making a little list of items to buy to take this up as a new hobby.

I booked on to a one day direct method mosaic workshop. Giulia was fantastic, so knowledgable and helpful and I came away with a completed mosaic square. A thoroughly enjoyable day and great to be working in an artist's studio. Thank you Giulia!

Loved it! Really fun and relaxing atmosphere - the snacks provided were the cherry on top. Felt very welcome and had a lovely day, my mosaic sits proudly on my mantel place.
Christine - 5 November 2021
I was a complete beginner to mosaics and Giulia was a great teacher, patient and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed learning the technique and was very pleased with my finished piece. I also had a chance to see some of Giulia's own mosaic work and was much impressed! I would definitely recommend this class.

I booked the Mosaic Workshop for my friends birthday. We both had a really enjoyable day. Giulia was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. We were given clear instructions but allowed to experiment and be creative whilst knowing that Giulia was there so that we could ask any questions. The day was relaxing and very enjoyable. Thank you.

Gabrielle - 19 January 2020
Me and my mum had a great day at Giulia's lovely studio! Giulia was very welcoming and knowledgable. All materials were laid out and ready to go and there was a great selection of tiles and colours to choose from. Everything was explained clearly and the time flew bye as we saw our work come together piece by piece.The best moment is right at the end, grouting done and you're cleaning the tiles, the whole thing comes to life and the colours pop! Thanks for a great day, we're very happy with what we made!
