I wish I'd attended the 'Self Reflection through mirrored Mosaic' class. That looks as though it would have been great fun. The finished works are all very individual and all very beautiful.

The selection of collages were probably the most fascinating. Some included scraps of text which added to the story. I wanted to hear the stories behind those works.

I love the bold colours for the front of the building, but then when you step inside, it all feels a bit dark and sterile. The artwork itself loos great.
