Great fun, the time was filled from start to finish. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable tutor who gave a lot of assistance and feedback. Plenty of choice of supplies to create a fanatastic small mosaic. Tea/coffee and biscuits to keep us going. Lovely cafe on site for lunch with delicious home made food and very reasonable price. I am really pleased with what I made and recommend you try too.

This class is the highlight of my week. I have learnt so much and the choice of materials is exceptional. The teaching is of a very high standard and the classes are still nice and small because of covid so it is a safe environment. I can not recommend it highly enough.

I am so glad to have enrolled in this 13 week mosaic course. Every body is so welcoming and helpful. It is great that we are encouraged to work on our own ideas and preferred methods of working are accepted. Lovely space to work in. Plenty of materials, and a nice group of participants. Excellent teachers. Could not wish for more.

Alex a really good teacher I support the request to be prepared with designs for the class as even simple designs take all day. Materials were plenty and varied to use. Back to Alex as she set a welcoming tone for the whole day. I certainly recommend this course to others Meg

I had a horrible start to the full day Beginner's Course on Saturday 21st August because the instructions to the car park [I am a Blue Badge holder] were totally inadequate. I had been helped to reserve a place by Marvin in the office during the week but the instruction to collect the parking permit before class required me to find the address and a parking place to safely leave my car before doing so! The number of the School of Mosaic was very hard to see from the road and way beyond the entrance to the parking area. The office phone was not answered when I tried for help. Fortunately Alex my course tutor later picked up a call - she had supplied us with her number - and came out into the road to help me find the entrance car parking space and permit for display alongside my disabled badge. She was friendly, understanding and very generous considering she was also just beginning the course with the other participants [another of whom had also had similar problems]. The good news is that having got over my parking problems etc I had a very good day. The course was well organised and relaxed. Alex was very skilled at meeting the needs of a varied group and created a supportive atmosphere. Without seeming to pressure us she got us through the required stages providing help when required without fuss or patronising us. Her humour and chocolate digestive biscuit were great and we all left very satisfied and proud of our own and each other's achievements! Thankyou

Really enjoyed a busy but rewarding day. Guidance from the host was insightful and always seemed to be at just the right moment. Plenty of tools & tiles to choose from which made designing my first mosaic a joy.

Great teacher and airy space to work in which was cool on a boiling day. Alot to fit in the hours and a shame that the end was time tight but I really enjoyed it!

It was okay, I learned that I could draw the tile shape on the wood, but overall I had learned way more from online videos, and other online materials before. The atmosphere around the school was very nice. I feel the course was lacking instruction and technique teaching. I was hoping to get detailed explanation of use of tools, cutting or tiles laying technique, and comment or advice on the design choice (what's suitable, not suitable), but all of them were not really covered. We were only given a paper about ways to cut into different shapes, but I don't think the tutor actually covered the cutting technique other than just asking us to try it, I feel that we were effectively just given the space and materials to work on a piece that day with limited explanation and guidance. I thought it was a course, not an experience day. Perhaps if was intended that way, it should be advertised that way?

A really enjoyable course which was well structured and lovely to come away with a finished piece at the end of the day. It would have been helpful to have had a supply of cutters (the same as used on the day) available to purchase from the school, or more precise details about makes and stockists so that I could confidently buy online the same equipment that we practised with.

A wide choice of materials and techniques are available too. This is "the place to be" to improve your mosaic skills !

I have done many mosaic courses but have never had a teacher who was as skilled as the teacher on this course. She is excellent. The space is large and there are a lot of supplies and a library for ideas and its the perfect place to do mosaic. Its the highlight of my week.

The first class of Various Techniques Mosaic Course was very informative. The teaching methods are clear and the materials are good quality and teaching to a high standard. Its great to get stuck into a new hobby and meet people at the same time. The library is good for any research and the LSoM a lively community be a part of.

The course was excellent. I had never done any mosaic work before but after this course I love it and would like to do more. The teacher was superb - friendly, helpful and encouraging. I’d come again in a flash.

Small, friendly group and knowledgable tutor who was able to bring out the best from each student whatever their previous experience. I was already familiar with the direct method so it was interesting to try indirect method. On balance I prefer direct but the tips and techniques I learned are useful for both and the mosaics I make at home have improved as a result of what I learned.

The teachers were very professional and patient. I det decided to make a portrait in mosaic from a photograph I had taken and the result was amazing all credit to the guiduidance of the tutor which made all the difference The group working was very beneficial too and all staff welcoming and friendly. The venue with display of amazing mosaics makes it very conducive to learning and being creative

Tutor was passionate and enabled all students to complete their project. Plenty of equipment and choice of materials. My experience certainly made me want to go back for more! I had a really enjoyable day, a very socialable group with lots if giggles as well as the hard work concentrating! In n our break I chatted to students on another class and If I lived in London I would certainly have looked into doing a diploma. The school has a great ethos, very engaged with local community and happy that by attending a course with them it helps support this work.

Fabulous course with excellent individual support and guidance. Sylvie, the tutor, is very patient, flexible and always ready to provide help and advice when required. The studio has an abundance of materials and you will be given loads of inspiration to help you produce your work.
