"The whole school thoroughly enjoyed working with Rachel in designing, creating and then making 2 wonderful mosaics to depict our Christian Values of our school and also our school logo. Every child from Reception through to Year 6 worked with Rachel and produced these amazing works. I cannot speak highly enough of Rachel and the work the children produced, simply beautiful. Everyone who sees our mosaics comments on them and they make the outside of our school unique! Thank you."
Mrs. Sarah Groves, Headteacher of Clyro Church in Wales Primary School.
Rachel has worked with several projects at St John’s C of E Academy. She has helped inspire the children create their own project ideas, and then turn them into creative, stunning mosaics and banners. Rachel is both talented and inspirational and has an excellent rapport with children and adults.

Rachel came to both our schools, Robinswood and Waterwells to work on mosaics. She designed two beautiful circular ‘Welcome’ mosaics to display at the front of our schools and also a bespoke set of letters which spelt the word BEST from our school vision ‘Be the BEST you can be’.
The approach Rachel took with the children was inclusive and inspiring. She had a fantastic manner with all the children from Reception to Y6, which is a real talent. The staff talked most highly of her and enjoyed her company and the artistic flare she bought to the school. She will be top of my list for recommendations to any other school.
Thank you Rachel.

Rachel worked with all the pupils in our school to create a wall hanging celebrating our school values. When the completed work was first shown to the pupils, parents and staff in assembly there was a spontaneous “wow” from the whole community! The wall hanging is now in our entrance hall and we have had lots of positive comments from visitors to the school. Thanks Rachel!

Rodborough Youth Project runs activities for young people aged 11 – 16 years old every Friday evening. We were delighted to have Rachel Shilston join us for 2 sessions. Rachel engaged really well with the young people, and understood that club ethos, allowing the young people to participate when they were ready. The mural that they created is vibrant, colourful and is something the young people are very proud of. We would highly recommend Rachel to any group looking to create a unique art project.

Rachel carried out a fantastic whole-school mosaic project with our school, ensuring everyone was involved and felt they were a part of the project. The end result was stunning and encapsulated our school Christian values in an easily accessible visual form. I would recommend her work to anyone wholeheartedly.
