A group of us have been making a mosaic to put on our community allotment building. Leona welcomed all our ideas of what should be in the picture and with everyone chipping in, she drew a fabulous outline ready to be filled in with mosaic tiles. Over the weeks different people have joined in the sessions, and Leona instantly makes them feel part of the group.She is so friendly and welcoming and she values everyone’s contributions, even those of us who feel we haven’t a creative bone in our body!
Leona is an instinctive teacher, she is very knowledgeable, helpful and patient, she listens and gives great feedback and manages to draw out the best in you. The end result is fantastic and we all feel very proud of our achievements. Mosaic with Leona has been a really good experience and I am greatly looking forward to the next one.”
“Huge thanks for all your time and expertise. I have really enjoyed being part of creating our fantastic community mosaic and will miss the sessions. You have been an inspirational “group leader”!”
