‘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.’
‘I loved the mural. It was very interesting and I liked the the spots on the frog. Thank you.’
‘I loved taking part in the mural sessions, especially doing all the ‘fiddly bits’. I put all my dedication into this project and I had a fantastic time with Maud and the rest of the crew. I love Artyface!
“It’s great to see local organisations such as Artyface access funding to involve all members of the local community in creating and displaying these beautiful mosaics that benefit not just the schools where they’ve worked but the wider community from postmen to passersby.
Injecting both creativity and colour across Waltham Forest and London, it’s brilliant to see such a lasting legacy and impact of everyone’s hard work and enthusiasm.”
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!
“The whole school community has thoroughly enjoyed working with Artyface. From the moment that Maud first arrived in school to discuss the brief to the completion of the work everything has been organised and executed exceptionally well. Maud and her team are great to work with. The whole experience has been a joy and completely ‘hassle free’.”
“A magnificent achievement and very beautiful. Glad we put a few pieces in too!”
“What a fantastic project! The playground looks beautiful!”
