Once again I cannot praise Alice enough, having attended her Introduction to Loom Weaving a few weeks ago I was itching to get stuck into the macrame course! Beautiful calm environment, fabulous coffee and highly influential teaching. I was so sad to leave as I’d gotten used to coming each week to learn something new! I’ve learnt so much valuable information from Alice herself, let alone her workshops. I could go on for hours, I cannot recommend her enough. She’s fantastic.

Alice is a great teacher, she taught each person the knots individually to their needs, she then helped us all with ideas and how to recover from mistakes. The others of the course were great like-minded crafters. Felt very comfortable and enjoyed the day.

Lovely studio and lovely area, I hope to book onto the weaving course because Alice is so clever and all her products are amazing and so inspirational.

Alice is very welcoming and is an encouraging teacher. I enjoyed the macrame workshop very much and have continued to work on my wall hanging. The studio is well equipped and a lovely creative space.
