So much info is packed into making this mosaic in one day!   This project has been the starting point for so many students. The trivet may be small, but the knowledge and experience you take away with you are worth its weight in gold! The project design and pattern are pre-determined.

 Testimonials: Past students

Hi Dave, Yesterday Jane and I attended Workshop A and we absolutely loved it. Please let Sandy know that the whole day was completely inspiring and something that we will never forget. You were both so welcoming and Sandy is one of the most joyful people I have ever met. The whole workshop was extremely well run and professional. Thank-you very much!  I have polished my tile and it has taken pride of place in my home. I could not be prouder of myself. Both Jane and I would like to book into workshop b.  Thanks, Kylie

Hi Sandy & Dave, 
Thank you so much for your wonderful workshop, Sandy I wish I lived closer, as I would be a permanent fixture.  I learned so much from your class, and I wished I had done it years ago, when I was offered to do the beginners course, I thought my 10 years' experience would cover anything that the course had to offer, but I was blown away with your tips, knowledge that make mosaicking uncomplicated, and exciting. Calling it a "Beginners Course" does not give the course the credit that it deserves.   
Thanks for everything, Lesley - Melbourne. 

I have just travelled from New Zealand to attend the Beginner and Advanced Mosaic Course run by Sandy Robertson.

I had previous knowledge of mosaics, HOWEVER when I did the beginners course, I realised how little I really knew and how much I struggled with simple things. It was amazing the information that was so freely shared with the group. We were all like bits of blotting paper soaking up all the knowledge that was being imparted to us in such an animated and structural way.
The Advanced Course - wow!! is all I can say. How enlightening how absolutely fantastic, fabulous and inspiring.
Sandy provided a professional, personable and safe learning environment and gave to each of us on an individual basis. Her love and enthusiasm for mosaics were infectious.
I not only gained back my "mojo" I gained a wonderful friend in both Sandy and Dave who looked after me so well. Dave, you need cloning you looked after us so well.
Thank you so much for this wonderful journey.
AnneMaree - N.Z.
RECOMMENDATION: Anyone thinking of a course look no further, I have attended many, but this is a Class A+ course.
