Sept. 2022

Please email (see below) if you are interested in a FRIDAY class, run from 10am - 2pm most Fridays from September.

Students work on their own project and support & tuition is provided as required. £30 per session plus materials, an A4 mosaic costs approx £30 and takes 2-4 weeks to complete in class time. 

 

If you would like to join our mosaic get togethers please let me know, we are a creative & friendly bunch of mixed abilities. It is more suited to folk who want to revisit, (it's addictive!), rather than a one off class. Beginners are most welcome, as well as those who have been coming along since 2005!. 

To enquire please email.

MY WEEKLY CLASSES are popular with regulars, but we always welcome newcomers.

 

If you can't travel to Essex, consider subscribing to my online course, & it is an ideal way to get started before joining in with an actual class  - you can watch the videos, (no need to pay out on equipment) and is packed with tips about suppliers and what you need to get started with this fun craft. At just £20 it is a modest outlay for a lot of amazing information and inspiring projects.

Anne is a great teacher, gives plenty of help to novices (like me) with creative ideas but little knowledge on how to execute them (like me). Super friendly group of ladies (men are welcome too!). Highly recommend.

I thoroughly enjoyed the two afternoons that I attended Anne's classes. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. Some of the people are so incredibly talented and they really gave me an idea of what I could achieve with a lot of practice. Anne took time to show me different methods and techniques as well as tutoring me from scratch with the basics so that I felt I really achieved something in the two afternoons. If only I lived closer I would be there every week!

...the best day of the week - Anne is very encouraging and uncritical despite giving her plenty of opportunity! It is a very happy atmosphere with great conversations, biscuits and laughter! The results of the week are amazing with such diversity. We have all become addicted, so  keep going and teaching us Anne and a big thank you. 

I have been attending Anne's class for over 5yrs now - it's addictive! The classes are very relaxed, with expert tuition from Anne. From the outset you can be creative and learn new skills at your own pace. Like myself, a lot of the attendees are quite proficient mosaicers now and also work at home, but still enjoy the stimulus of working in a group, sharing experiences and feedback, and being introduced to new matetials and techniques. Mosaicing is an opportunity to be absorbed in an activity and completely lose yourself for a few hours, no distractions. I could not recommend Anne's highly enough!!

I love Making Mosaics classes on Fridays. Whilst fairly new to the class I felt welcome and soon got inspired by seeing what the other students were working on. Anne is extremely patient and kind and as well as giving good advice and helping you when you are stuck or unsure, she also makes a wonderful cuppa keeping our creativity going and has a great sense of humour. She makes you feel welcome and at home. The other students are fun and very friendly and the time whizzes by far too quickly!

a whole new world of colours and materials....

..a very practical skill, I love being able to personalise my work with dates and names...

inspiring and fun, overnight I gained a new interest I find very engrossing! 

...Anne's background as a designer has brought me back many times for more advice on style and content. 

.... a lovely studio and easy to park ... I've enrolled at other classes now that I've discovered 'Stoneman Press'

I am a relatively new member of the Mosaic class but have thoroughly enjoyed my Friday mornings. Initially I just booked one class to see if I could cope. I am now on my third project. Rather ambitiously I am covering a small coffee table. I took my very first piece of mosaic to a professional framer and he told me it was very good. I thought he was just being kind but he was genuinely impressed with the quality of the work. Anne is an excellent teacher and will offer guidance if needed.
