Alice was a great teacher and incredibly patient with us all. It was a really fun way to spend an evening and I have even got the kids doing it now! I would highly recommend it...and can’t wait to come back and do more.
As someone who also teaches workshops it was super enjoyable to actually learn something! Alice was really lovely, and a good educator and my mother and I both enjoyed it very much! I'll certainly be looking to do some more of Alice's workshops.
My Mum and I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop and were really happy with the end product. Although we were initially slow to pick up the techniques, with Alice’s thorough and patient teaching skills we finished our pot hangings!
The pot hanger workshop with Alice was brilliant fun!
It was nice to learn about a new craft, had some great conversation and made a pot hanger – all in 2 hours! I left feeling very creative and very inspired. Thank you!
I have completed 2 macrame courses now. Alice is an excellent teacher. Patient, friendly and knowledgeable. I have come away feeling confident and able to progress by myself. I will hopefully be back for more, will be trying weaving next time. Thank You Alice.
Thank you Alice,
I had a great time on the macrame course today, under your expert tution I made a lovely plant pot holder - I’m so impressed with my first attempt at macrame!
I’m definitely booking in for another class to learn some more knots :-)
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.
Cannot recommend this highly enough! I had the most amazing time yesterday and i've already got some more macrame on the go at home that i started when i got back. Alice was great and the studio is such a lovely place to visit and work. Book - you will love it!! :)
