I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 half days with Pip Edwards doing the adult mosaic workshop, at Art Studio 48. Pip is an excellent teacher. She guided me through the design process to start my creation. I had some ideas but she helped me build on them. Pip has such an eye for colour, she can relate it to the piece whilst taking into account the environment where the mosaic will be displayed and what the piece means to the person, ( symbolically). Whilst I was working on my piece Pip did my personal colours that comes from my birth date that describes parts of my personality. It was truly a wonderful experience, incorporating art, creativity, lovely food and lots of laughs.~ Michelle Bradley
Iv’e just created something that looks just like a professional did it F……. Amazing! My 2 sessions with Pip were very enjoyable and I learnt so much, not just about mosaic, but also about art. Pip teaches mosaic as an artist. She talks about the importance of good composition, linking colours and the optical blending of different colours to produce new colours. The whole process is like painting a canvas, only with tiles! I would really recommend this course to anyone. You don’t need to be artistic to create something amazing. I feel very inspired by what Iv’e seen and learned.~ Jane Baldwin
