Gillian reviewed: SAORI Weaving Taster session

"We had a great time at the taster session. We really enjoyed learning something new. Amanda is a great teacher and there was a fantastic selection of materials to use. We were both very happy with the piece of work we produced. The studio is in a good location and there is free parking very close by. "

" Thank you Gillian for your kind words. I was delighted to introduce you both to SAORI weaving and see your beautiful weaving develop in just a couple of hours. "

Chris Reid reviewed: SAORI freeform weaving 2 day beginners' course

"I attended the Saori 2 Day Beginners Course. My previous experience of weaving was from primary school 65 years ago! We were welcomed into a calm space with a ‘sweet shop’ of threads and beads to inspire us. Amanda introduced us to the principles of Saori weaving in a totally unthreatening way. We were soon on the looms and exploring the techniques we’d been introduced to. Amanda skilfully assisting and encouraging as required. The 2 days went far too quickly and I for one was left wanting more. I’ve found myself looking at colour and texture around me more observantly I was seduced by the bright colours of the threads available but would now love to try something in muted shades as seen in Amanda’s fabulous examples. Thank you Amanda for your patience and inspiration."

Janice reviewed: SAORI creative weaving day

"Two of us joined a lovely supportive and creative ( 4 students in total) group to try this weaving for the first time. It was a lovely day, very relaxing and calming. Amanda was really helpful, constructive, and keen for everyone to do their very best and to enjoy the day. She was really generous with her wool etc, knowlege , not to mention refreshments. Thanks for a great day Amanda, couldn't have enjoyed it any more, and will definitely be back for more."
