What participants are saying: “I loved that I came away from the workshop with a mosaic that I had designed and created myself. Melinda’s calm encouragement gave me confidence to play with the glass and enjoy the process even though I had no prior experience. I’m looking forward to doing another one! ~ Susie B, Bridgewater”
