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 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!

I really enjoyed this course, the timing was perfect and the explanations clear.
It's nice to have something to take home.

The venue (the round tower) was such a lovely space to do this, you could hear the waves.

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

What a great workshop! It was so nice to just switch off from everything and focus on one thing and being in the moment. A great way to learn something new and practice mindfulness. I loved it! Alice is lovely and so patient. And I'm chuffed with my pot hanger. I would definitely recommend this 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.

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.
