My 11 year old son had a private weaving workshop with Ellie and loved it. He was so inspired and happy afterwards, and I was amazed at the pieces he managed to create under Ellie’s expert tuition. He loved the conversations they had too and all her yarns and looms. The first thing he said when he got back in the car was: ‘when can I come back?’
Response from Elka:Thank you so much for the lovely review Zoe. Fred is an inspiration and welcome back in my studio anytime!
My 14 year old daughter and her friend did the course with Ellie and came back absolutely brimming with ideas and inspiration. They produced two beautiful pieces of weaving from a wide choice of yarns, and said that the time had flown by. They both felt that Ellie was very inspiring, encouraging and supportive throughout the day - a really successful and rewarding experience.
Response from Elka:Hi Sarah, thank you so much for the review. It was a great fun having the girls in my studio for the day and i'm so happy they enjoyed the weaving! Best wishes, Ellie
