Testimonial from Ali, Sharon and Barbara
“Set in beautiful countryside, we were greeted by Sarah (with tea and delicious brownies) who made us feel completely at ease. We chatted about what our ideas were for our mosaics before we headed to the studio where we were given some instructions on how to use the equipment. We were able to use a huge selection of materials and Sarah was really helpful in bringing our ideas to life. Lunch was provided which was also delicious and we left at the end of the day with our mosaics ready to grout and polish at home. The day was fun, relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you Sarah!”
Testimonial from Margaret
“Spending time with a friend is always enjoyable – but learning a new skill together and having a finished article at the end is great day out!
In a very relaxed atmosphere with coffee and chocolate brownies Sarah showed various examples of achievable projects.
Plenty of tuition on using tile nippers and grouting.
Amazing what can be achieved with broken bits and pieces.
Sarah provided a lovely lunch for us – then we returned to the cosy workshop to finish our projects.
I must say I was delighted with my end result.
Very grateful to Sarah for making the day so enjoyable.”
Testimonial from Debbie
“Enjoyed a great day with Sarah at her home and cosy workshop in stunning surroundings in the Kent countryside. Under Sarah’s expert eye, and kind and encouraging guidance, I completed my first mosaic and now can’t wait to do more. Have to mention the delicious lunch and coffee and jam tarts-lightest pastry ever!”

Testimonial from Kathy
“Before the summer I spent a lovely day at the beautiful home of Mosaic Mum, Sarah, learning the art of Mosaicing. We spent the day mostly in the garden working and what a gorgeous setting in the countryside it was too. It was a very busy morning learning how to cut and design my plate, followed by a really delicious lunch of homemade quiche and salad. Then again a busy afternoon trying to finish what I started in the morning. I have to say my shaky hands didn’t help matters and I have rather a lot of glue to still remove, but Sarah was great and very helpful and most importantly patient!
Testimonial from Maureen
“I have just attended a 2 day Master Class Mosaic workshop with Sarah Bourne at her home, in her Studio workshop. Sarah was very welcoming and put me at ease straight away. I felt as if I was visiting a friend’s home rather than taking a 2 day course. Sarah’s teaching method is easy to follow. She was patient and instructive in how to use the tools needed for cutting up china and porcelain and making shapes from the designs on the vintage plates, without being too rushed. As someone who has never tried mosaic design before, I really enjoyed learning a new skill and have now accomplished a great mosaic table top for my garden, which I am so pleased about.
I had drawn a Mandela design that I wanted to use. I needed Sarah’s advice and expertise in constructing this and in sorting out the pieces to fit successfully – it was almost like putting together a jigsaw pattern. I got great enjoyment from the two days and the time seemed to fly by. As well as providing me regularly with refreshments, Sarah made a delicious home cooked lunch that we had out in her garden, overlooking the fields (an idyllic setting).
I would recommend this course for anyone who wants to learn a new skill and how to put together a mosaic creation for your home or garden, or even as a gift.”
Testimonial from Jane
“I had a very interesting and enjoyable day yesterday having 1:1 tuition with Sarah as she taught me how to create my own mosaic. I absolutely loved it, couldn’t believe how fast the time went. She even fed me at lunchtime – all home-cooked and delicious. I would highly recommend her patient teaching and the whole experience of a lovely day”
