I had been waiting for a face to face chance to learn a new skill. This was totally worth it. Alice is so patient and lets everyone learn at their own pace. There was no tension at all. I really loved the fact that it was a small group and she had time for everyone. I loved the experience 100%.

This was a really lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Alice is a wonderful teacher, and a very talented artist. I can’t wait to practise my new knotting skills. I also now have a beautiful handmade plant hanger to display in my lounge.

I had SO much fun at this class! I saw Alice’s studio over a year ago and have been wanting to learn macrame for a long while. I didn’t want to do an online class and had a gift card for me birthday, Alice fitted me in quickly.
The class was easy to follow and Alice was so helpful and supportive throughout. Absolutely recommend her for everything weaving and macrame based! She also has some beautiful pieces for sale.
So proud of my work and thoroughly enjoyed my class! Absolutely recommend!!

I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, fabulous way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon.
Alice was excellent, so patient, online workshops must be quite a challenge especially for something so complicated.
I cannot recommend it enough, will definitely do another.

I absolutely loved the macrame workshop with Alice, I had been meaning to get to one of her workshops for ages and I'm so happy I could finally make a session. Alice is so patient and really great at guiding people through the process. I felt so calm and mindful whilst knotting away and would encourage anyone to give it a try! Plus I have an amazing macrame hanging pot now in my home, I feel so proud every time I look at it!

A lot of time and care has been put into presenting this course. Photos are very clear (and lots of them to show each stage) and the explanations are excellent. My wall hanging actually looks like it should!

Highly recommend this course. I've learnt a lot and it's made me want to learn more!

Thank you for a really well organised and enjoyable course. Everything arrived in the post in good time and Alice sent reminders and clear instructions on how to join and what we needed. I really liked how we could all move at different paces as you explained the next steps whenever anyone needed to hear them - meant there was no pressure. I hope to join you again soon :)

I enjoyed the 2 hour pot hanger class thoroughly. Alice was amiable and an excellent teacher. she made it feel effortless and the two hours passed very fast. The instructions were clear and once you got into a rhythm, it was very therapeutic. The result was terrific and the whole process absolutely satisfying. I would recommend it.

Would really recommend to anyone as a group activity with friends or on your own to channel your inner creative spirit. Alice was great, a really lovely and patient instructor.”, particularly good at working with people at different speeds (I was slow on picking it up but was flying by the end). Really enjoyable, thanks Alice.

2 hour plant holder macrame session.
Only a small group but Alice put us at ease and dealt with me getting in a muddle( which is no mean feat on zoom) pot not finished but have information to do this.

Nicole Keshav - - #32290

Thank you, Alice, for a relaxed and fun introduction to macrame. I admired your patience and teaching skill. It was great to see how you displayed your example clearly and encouraged each person in the workshop. Your encouragement and enthusiasm were wonderful. I like your aesthetics too, and would highly recommend this course to anyone interested.

Alice's workshop was great fun. In just two hours and in a small online group, we learned how to make a really pretty macrame pot hanger, with everything we needed to be able to complete it quite quickly after the session. Alice was patient, friendly, and relaxed, and the knotting process also gave lots of time for chatting and asking questions as we progressed. Alice was able very clearly to demonstrate the three knots we used, effectively overcoming the challenges of a virtual workshop setting. By the end, I felt that I'd learned the basics of a new skillset, and that I had enough knowledge to be able to adapt the knots to my own designs in the future. Along the way, we heard that there are a couple of thousand knots - so this was just the beginning, but it was really satisfying to get so far in such a short time. Warning: I can really see how knotting can become addictive. Especially if you find that friends and family encourage you with positive feedback on your efforts!

Alice’s course is brilliant, was a great location in the round tower, enough space and lovely to hear the sea around us. Alice is a great teacher, I really enjoyed learning how to make a macrame hanger and have now got the skills and knowledge to make some more!

Really enjoyable and relaxing 2hrs with a great teacher and really nice person! Felt really safe with Alice’s Covid precautions which did not detract from the course.

The rhythm of tying the knots was extremely relaxing and I now have a lovely retro pot hanger.
Thank you Alice and good luck with all your future courses which I will look at with interest!

Purchased as a birthday gift from my husband, I did the workshop last Sunday (originally booked for earlier in the year but was rescheduled). Alice make the class totally compliant with social distancing, so it felt safe.
The location was also very pretty and inspired creativity too!
The macrame tutorial was brilliant, Alice was patient and helpful - and the end result was a fabulous plant holder which now has pride of place in my bathroom (super chuffed as I've wanted a plant in my bathroom for ages!)
I have already recommended the class to people I know and I would not hesitate on recommending it to the person reading this! Excellent workshop

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.

In-person course
Eloise Kent - - #14377

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.
