What a splendid way to spend our wedding anniversary. Anna was very welcoming from the moment we arrived & wasn't rushed throughout whole day. Highly recommend.

Anna is the most positive teacher you could wish to have and before we had even finished the course on Saturday we had booked up to attend a mosaic course!
