REVIEWS
I really enjoyed this class. Mark is an exceptional teacher. Very patient and helpful and offered step by step guidance. He catered equally for all levels of experience from beginners to advanced. The location in the gardens was lovely. We were lucky to have perfect weather but I do wonder what plan B would be if we had inclement weather?

A beautiful town in northern Italy - a town who protected partisans during WW2 and suffered the loss of all men and boys as retribution. Today it still bears the marks of war on the walls of the town, with the wooden bridge having been rebuilt a number of times due to war. This mosaic commission was created for a much happier reason, to commemorate a long held friendship between two families, here in Australia and there in Italy. Entirely created with hand cut pieces of glass.
