"My daughter and I both had such a wonderful day. Jo was wonderful, a delightful teacher with a witty sense of humour. She allowed us free expression in our work, which for us both is really important. She is inspirational and generous. We came away thrilled with our work. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in pursuing a new craft or hobby"

"I felt a bit apprehensive as I am not particularly artistic but I just really wanted to go and have a try and I wanted some time to relax too. It was AMAZING, Jo is so good at explaining things, super calm and with a lovely fun personality. We spent the morning learning the ropes and deciding on designs, we had a great lunch then spent the afternoon 'laying tiles'. What tranquility! If you need a rest and some time out and also fancy doing something different then book yourself on one of these courses"

If you would like to learn how to make mosaics in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, Jo offers day courses for small groups from her studio in Folkestone. To ensure that all students receive adequate personal tuition these courses are limited to a maximum of six students per course.

The dates for the day courses during 2013 are on the right. The sessions run from 10.30 am to 4.30 pm and cost £100.

Included in the price of the course are easy to follow course notes, all materials and personal tuition.

The mosaic shop is stocked with all the items needed to make your own mosaics, as well as a gallery featuring Jo’s own work.

Whilst on the course you will get 10% discount on kits, tools and tiles stocked in the shop.

Gift vouchers are available so that you can give a course as a present to a friend or family member.

Jo’s studio is part of Folkestone’s Creative Foundation and is situated in the heart of Folkestone’s creative quarter, only a short walk form the picturesque harbour up the steep cobbled Old High Street.

The Exclusive Group Courses offers all of the benefits of the above Studio Courses, but with the added attraction of being with people you'd like to spend time with. It's a great way to catch up with people you haven't seen for a while and to have a creative day too! All you need to do is find 3 or 4 friends, family members or work colleagues, decide on a few mutually convenient dates and then contact me for availability. Please note that these Exclusive Group Courses are not run on the Studio Course dates that are listed below, this gives you the freedom to come along when it suits you.
