A lovely weaving kit - I chose the Heather colours, and love the variety of wools supplied. I haven’t started weaving yet, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it. Very prompt delivery.

I really enjoyed the workshop and was great step up from Weave a scarf. We learnt how to use pick up sticks and make patterns, it was clear and the the handouts will help to weave at home.
I will happily be signing up for more weaving days .

This course was a really good follow-up to the Weave A Scarf in a Day course, introducing the possibility of varying scarves (in my case) with patterns produced using pick-up sticks. Anne is a superb teacher, it would have taken me forever to work out how to create the patterns using a book. Some things need live teaching! I am surprised that it was possible to produce a quite impressive sampler in 3 hours! So now I and my new loom are all set for producing Christmas scarves with variations.

I really enjoyed my ‘Weave a scarf in a day’ course with Anne. I hadn’t done any weaving before and she patiently explained and helped with every step of the process - I’m very pleased with my scarf and was inspired to order a loom so I can make more. I will have a wonderful new hobby! Thanks Anne.

This was an absolutely excellent introduction to weaving, and yes, it is indeed possible to weave a scarf - quite a long scarf too - in a day! Anne is a really good teacher and I came home feeling so encouraged and inspired that I have already bought a small loom on which to try out my new skills. The day was also fun and therapeutic - there is nothing like focusing for a few hours on something creative to restore one’s sense of wellbeing. Thank you!

Anne is a very good tutor enabling everyone to work at their own pace. It was a very enjoyable day. As advertised, I wove a scarf in a day.

What a fabulous class, everyone was buzzing throughout the whole day, Anne is a great tutor and the students all went home with the most amazing scarves. Four of them have since expanded on their new weaving addiction and bought looms!

Very well structured course. Delightful and knowledgeable tutor. Finished on time with a finished scarf. Loved every minute of it. The alchemy of the process is addictive. Went home and bought myself a loom! Need I say more. Ah yes, I'm already booked on another of Anne's courses.

I had a brilliant day on this workshop. Anne’s gentle calm manner was so soothing, and her depth of knowledge and patience made the day fly by. I enjoyed the experience so much that 2 days later, I bought my own loom and am enthusiastically continuing my weaving journey.

I would recommend this workshop to anyone.

I had a very enjoyable day at Ripley. This was a technique I had always wanted to try and I was not disappointed with what I learned in six hours. I now am the proud owner of a scarf I can say 'I made myself', with a lot of help from Anne, and it has already been admired.

Anne is a very patient teacher who was very willing to impart of her knowledge. It is certainly a day I would love to repeat.

Thank you Anne

Joan

Fantastic day. Anne was a very knowledgable and patient tutor and because there were only 6 participants she could give us all the 1 to 1 attention we needed. Lovely venue at South Square, Thornton with a fab veggie cafe. Delighted with my finished scarf. Highly recommended

Had such a good day with Anne. She’s a brilliant teacher, imparting her knowledge with warmth and humour. I’d brought my own yarn but the others were able to select wools from those she had brought along and we all produced lovely scarves to take home. April was the perfect host, keeping us supplied with refreshments and encouragement. Couldn’t recommend too highly.

Following the hand weaving day in Halifax I did eventually purchase a small rigid heddle loom, and completed my first scarf last week. A big thank you to Anne for introducing me to hand weaving.  I find it very therapeutic and am loving the flexibility of having such a small loom.

Fantastic workshop for anyone looking for an introduction to weaving. I am visually impaired which made it a daunting thought, but Anne and the venue were nothing but helpful and supportive throughout. The workshop went at a good pace matched to the group and I came away with the basic principles and a scarf.
