Lovely relaxing morning making a mosaic tile, Julia is lovely. Really enjoyed it and would love to come back and do something else

I attended the workshop with my partner to celebrate her birthday. We had a really wonderful time. Our teacher Giulia was kind, patient and knowledgeable, she explained the process very well and assisted us in making our mosaics while still letting us complete the projects independently. She had a great choice of materials (many colors/tile types to choose from) and supported us in making the designs we liked most. It was a fantastically meditative and developing experience, not just a great way to spend time, but also a skill we can use to decorate items in our home.

Great session. Lovely workshop and set up for the session.

Maybe a bit more coaching on nipping technique would have helped some of the group. All in all a great way to spend a Sunday being creative!

The teacher was traditionally trained in the art of mosaic.she was so patient and supportive. Very pleasant person to work with.
All materials and tools were provided like a sweet shop.
Wonderful experience. Really helped give me the confidence to have a go on my own.
It was good value for money considering all her skills she shared with us.
Many thanks.

Gulia was friendly and helpful. The venue was light and airy, although a bit hard to find. I loved the materials and there was plenty of choice.
My mosaic picture of a cactus looks good, for a first attempt. It is tricky and now I really appreciate mosaic on a different level.

Monika Mullaney Sep 2023

I have learned the basics of mosaic making and can start practicing at home. It was a good day.

I took the mosaic class, I've always wanted to try this. It's like doing a jigsaw puzzle. The process is very satisfying but the end is the best. My tutor Giulia was helpful and courteous, her designs were so inspiring and she guided us to produce our own little pieces of art in the time allocated.

Giulia was great - a wonderful teacher. The class was fun and instructive. I am thinking about a follow up course.

Stacy Parris Aug 2023

Great mosaic class, it was my first time and Giulia was great. Very thorough step by step instructions were given on how to put your mosaic together. Giulia also helped and guided me throughout and for my first time I thought my piece turned out great. Half a day is definitely enough time to finish your piece. Pics were taken of everyone throughout to document progress. Small studio but okay space wise as there was only 4 of us booked in for my session, so had a bit more space. Overall a very great mindful arty activity, would recommend!

I loved this workshop! The teacher was excellent, time flew by and I was very happy with my finished mosaic

Maksim Glushkov Apr 2023

We worked with Giulia and I would like to thank her. Everything was great, we are so happy with this workshop. Good materials, and nice teacher’s approach - you have enough help when you need it, but also have plenty of space for your own creativity (if you want it).

Fantastic experience. Would totally recommend this class.
The teacher/ artist was very welcoming and inspiring as well as helpful and supportive throughout.
All materials provided. The space is a lovely perfectly sized studio with lovely examples of her work all around. It was great fun, totally absorbing and I’m really proud of my final mosaic.

Giulia was very welcoming and supplied us with all the equipment and tiles to make our project. She explained every stage and helped us when we needed it. The time went very quickly and was a very mindfulness experience and we had the finished article to take home.

We had a fabulous morning with Giulia in her studio. Just show up and enjoy. She is a clear instructor and the process was a lot of fun. It was great going home with mosaics we had made ourselves.

Nicole Clarke Nov 2022

Brilliant class, small group, well organised. Great designs to choose from and you come away with a lovely coaster you can use.

Anna Panitkova Oct 2022

Charlotte Raymen Sep 2022

Very patient teacher, extremely knowledgeable and made us feel welcome and supported.
We had a variety of tile colours in different styles and there were plenty of cool templates to choose from!m. Good value for money and we had a lot to take away with us in terms of tips and mosaic goods (made by us!). We were able to book as a group and it was a wonderful shared experience. The music was really good too

I really enjoyed the mosaic class. Guila was very helpful and explained everything well. Her work is displayed in the lovely studio which was inspiring to see.
We were given tea, coffee and biscuits too whilst we did our mosaic from the choice of templates provided.

Teacher was a perfect mix of being available and not sitting on our shoulders. Patient, interested and talented teacher.
We learnt basic skills and all 3 of us were delighted with our end products. Great choice of colours and designs to choose from. Near transport in Central London. Highly recommended.

Charis Platford Jul 2022

This class was a fantastic opportunity to visit an artist’s studio, get a feel for a new artistic medium, and get hands on immediately. Giulia is a patient, highly skilled artist who was happy to answer our questions about her work whilst we made our mosaics. This class was really good value for money and she was able to accommodate us on a completely different day when we asked in advance. We had loads of fun and would recommend!

Ed Thwaites Jun 2022

We loved it, Giulia was a a great teacher, allowing us the freedom to do what we wanted but was always on hand to help keep it from going too off piste.
The whole class has a calm atmosphere and you end up with a good sized mosaic on a birch ply frame.
I will absolutely be recommending to friends, I think it’s something everyone should try.

Malgorzata Zglinska May 2022

A fantastic class! The teacher was great, helpful, supportive and very hospitable! I could not have asked for me. Thank you very much Giulia. Xxx

Polly Wines May 2022

Laura Sykes May 2022

I had a great morning with my nieces with Giulia. She was clear and helpful and provided tea and snack and a glass of water all welcome though I was far too absorbed to eat the snacks! She was aware of who wanted help and when and who was happy to plough on! Some did not finish bang on 2pm but she made sure everyone could finish before they left.

Thoroughly recommend, I learned a lot and Giulia answered all our questions well.

Abigail Woodman Apr 2022

Had a fantastic morning with Giulia making our first ever mosaics. Excellent tutor who took us through the techniques and designs. Really fun to do and would recommend.

Sharon Jandu Mar 2022

I got a gift to use at classbento and I chose mosaic workshop. The class was run by Giulia who was very talented in this art. I learnt how to cut the tiles to design a pattern. I was very happy how my end piece turned out and I will proudly display it in my house. Giulia’s studio was small but had enough room to run the workshop with 4 people and it was well equipped. I had a great time learning this art and am looking forward to doing more mosaics myself.
