"Liked the format - as a beginner with no glass or mosaic experience, I appreciate the step by step instructions with examples of how to do and how not to do different aspects. I also loved all the stories highlighting different phases of your growth in mosaics. Would not change a thing." Barbara C.
"I thought your workshop was brilliant - the study of process, content, pace of instruction. You seem to be very accessible about your art process. It's very helpful." Jennifer F.
"All is Fabulous!!!" Melissa B.
"So happy to have been a part of this workshop! David is an amazing and patient teacher which made this whole experience enjoyable. I actually learned how to make a mandala, then completed a mandala while making some new friends along the way. It was an awesome week! Thank you David!” Sherry C.
“I'm so pleased with how it turned out. The instructor was incredibly helpful, kind, and forthcoming with all his information. I highly recommend taking one of his classes if you have an interest in mosaics. Thank you David Chidgey!" Brendy C.
“I am having a wonderful time...learning more each day, lots of sharing and laughter...wonderful group of people. Yes I am planning my next mosaic...orchids....thank you David. This is your passion!” Ricky B.
"I'm enjoying myself a lot. So much fun sharing and learning with others. Especially when it comes to mosaics - my passion. Can't wait to see the finished mandalas. And see what class we take next!” Shirley R.
“A couple of things really stood out to me in this class. How the grout transformed the mandalas. How the light changed the color of the glass and how we had to trust David's experience when making our glass selections. And what a great group of people to spend three days with.” Shirley R.
“I had a fantastic time and each day was better than the previous day. David is a gifted teacher and friend to all sharing all his passion, experience and even some "oh this won't work" learning! Extra treat in meeting new friends!“ Ricky B.
