A great fun day out, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Guilia. I learnt a lot too and came away with a real sense of achievement having completed my own mosaic panel! Guilia is an excellent teacher, very friendly, patient and experienced. The small class size results in a much more personal and flexible approach. The location near Holborn is great too. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone irrespective of their experience in mosaics (or none as in my case!) Have a go you will not regret it. Thank you very much Guilia!!

I had a great day at South London mosaic studio - I was really impressed with how much I had learnt in only 8 hours! Giulia was really supportive and encouraging in all stages of the course, and offered extra help when needed. The studio was well-equipped with the tools we needed to use to make our mosaic and the materials were of very high quality. Whilst we were cutting and laying out tiles, Giulia was telling us all about the origins of mosaic, different techniques and her personal work. Her knowledge and passion for mosaic is extensive and certainly made me want to continue learning more about the artform.

Giulia is hugely knowledgable and experienced, a real expert in her field who is able to transmit her passion for the craft and the range of techniques clearly and with great enthusiasm. Her beautiful studio is well-equipped with everything you need to make your own piece of mosaic. Time really flew by as we drew out our designs, learned how to cut and arrange tiles and then mix concrete to assemble the final framed work. I particularly loved selecting the colours of beautiful tiles for my design, and seeing the 'big reveal' as the piece is refined and completed. Giulia is really encouraging and was on hand to help with the inevitable challenges that arise when learning new skills. I've always admired mosaic- from Roman to Victorian examples, so it was fascinating to hear about how they are made and gain insight into the skills of the mosaicist. I was extremely proud to bring home my finished work and explain all the techniques i had learned in just one day.
