    I has the mosaic experience with Giulia and three other learners yesterday and found it to be a truly excellent day - extremely well organised, welcoming, relaxed and fun - as well a being a lovely challenge to in a very focussed way make a mosaic piece from a clear master craftsperson. The studio and location are great and Giulia a very helpful and encouraging teacher. I enjoyed meeting the other students and the teas and coffee & biscuits provided. I wholly recommend!!
