This is a great course. Alana is an excellent teacher who is eager to ensure that students learn a wide variety of weaving skills. Her studio is in a peaceful setting and is well-resourced with beautiful yarns. She provides plenty of opportunities for individual creative expression with sensitive and knowledgeable guidance to support you. I had a great introduction to weaving.
This two day course was exciting and innovative whilst covering basic techniques for a beginner. Alana is a highly skilful and inspiring tutor who was sensitive to our individual learning styles and interests. She is generous with her knowledge and introduced us to the work of several practitioners that she realised would be of interest. The weaving studio is a pleasant environment and the atmosphere was focused but also informal. We were made to feel very welcome. Thoroughly recommended !
