‘I loved joining in and participating in the mosaic project. Me and my friends love it. The drawing excercises were great too. What made it even better as that it was a first time experience and we found a new interest so it really makes me want to go again. I really hope other people get an opportunity like this.’

At Our Lady of Victories we were seeking a partnership with artists for a whole school project to brighten up our outdoor playground environment – and Maud and her team at Artyface were a godsend! With endless patience and good humour, the artists and volunteers work tirelessly and their infectious enthusiasm for the work which they are doing is contagious. During the period when the work has been going on in school there has been a stream of eager children and adults wanting to participate. Maud herself is a jewel among artisans, inspired and inspiring, driven to share her skills and enthusiasm with as many people as possible, generously modelling her craft with others. She is super-organised and has shouldered the major part of the work in bidding for funds, resourcing and supplying the materials. Without her the project would not have been anywhere near as successful – she really does make dreams come to fruition!
