Jennifer is an excellent teacher. She is super organised and she keeps things moving at the right pace. Even though it can be a little overwhelming at first seeing the loom set up, things become clear just as they need to, so it makes it very suitable for absolute beginners. Before I knew it I was off to the races weaving up a storm. It's such a thrill to see the sample growing and to have such a lovely piece of fabric to take home. I am seriously hooked now. I've just booked in for the intermediate course with Rebecca next year.
Rebecca's beginners workshop was a wonderful introduction to the craft. Just run with two of us on it so plenty of time to be guided and ask qiestions. Looms were already set up so we had time to actually weave but Rebecca gave us a clear explanation of the steps and work inbolved in setting up so we had a good idea of what that would involve if we wanted to do more in the future. The manual which R gave use was again very helpful and clear. I thoroughly enjoyed the morning, the 3 of us had a lovely chat and I came away with a food sampler and an urge to buy a loom! Also.good biscuits :-)
Rebecca is an excellent and very patient tutor. She took us through the process of setting up a loom in easy to follow steps and supported this with an excellent written guide for when we start out on our own. I really enjoyed the course and Rebecca’s enthusiasm for her subject. I would highly recommend Rebecca for anyone who has an interest in exploring weaving
A wonderful course full of useful information. Rebecca is very generous with her time allowing you to try all aspects of the course after providing a demonstration. She explains the technical details so that you can understand each step and is always willing to answer any queries. I am now looking to purchase my own loom and am excited about producing my own fabric. I would thoroughly recommend both Rebecca as a tutor and this course as a way to progress with weaving.
Rebecca's approach for a beginners workshop was perfect & absolutely what I had hoped for. She provided just enough detail regarding the how of weaving to bring me to the loom understanding, in a very satisfying way, the basics to give it a go. I genuinely felt Rebecca wanted to share both her knowledge and her love of weaving with me. What could be better in a teacher. Loved it. Want to do more. Without hesitation recommend Dobby & Rose beginners workshop and thank Rebecca for such a lovely experience.
I would definitely recomend this course. Rebecca is a great teacher, her lesson was very well organised and 100% hands on. I came home with a piece of fabric, which I will treasure. I would like to come back soon to do the advanced course. I had a very enjoyable afternoon.
I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn how to weave. Rebecca is an excellent teacher. Her instructions are very clear and easy to follow no matter what level of ability, so we were made to feel very comfortable. I came along with my husband for a beginners session and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we have both got the weaving bug now! We intend to carry on learning via Rebecca and I'm planning to book the next session as soon as possible. Thank you Rebecca!
I spent such an interesting and engaging evening with Rebecca as she showed me the basics of weaving and then let me loose one of her looms to try out a variety of patterns.
I left with written details and a lovely sample of my evening's work. I would highly recommend Rebecca as a friendly, informative and encouraging teacher. I plan to go back!
Two days of complete absorption which gave me the confidence to take weaving further. I've now bought my own loom and found the course notes invaluable in setting it up; it's very exciting to begin weaving fabric that I could use around my home. Rebecca is a great tutor; she didn't overwhelm me with information but started each step and let me complete it. I highly recommend this course.
I wanted to have a go at weaving on a loom. I was delighted when I found this course. Rebecca is a really inspirational teacher. She has a great mix of patience, enthusiasm and encouragement. You finish with a piece of work you have woven to show off to family and friends! She has really inspired me to look into further weaving, especially how to set up a loom. Thank you for a great experience!
I spent a fascinating morning learning the basics of weaving which was perfectly pitched for a complete beginner allowing hands-on experience and some technical information to understand the process. It was absorbing and the time flew past. Rebecca explains the details without overwhelming you. I would highly recommend this course - it was fun and inspired me to consider learning more so the next course is being arranged.
I returned to Rebecca's studio for the Intermediate course. I learned so much, was very inspired and was very pleased with the sample I produced. I hope to return again to weave the rest of the warp!
Rebecca is a very patient and helpful teacher, allowing you to learn at your own pace. I would thoroughly recommend this course.
My daughter, Joanna, and I spent a fabulous morning with Rebecca! It was Joanna's first experience with a loom, and she was hooked straight away! I hadn't woven for 34 years, so needed a gentle re-introduction. Rebecca was a warm, enthusiastic teacher, who worked at our pace, explaining clearly the basic processes, giving us lots of time to experiment with all the lovely colours and textures. We are thrilled with our sample cloths, and have come away with lots of ideas! Thoroughly recommend this course!
Loved this course. Rebecca is an excellent teacher, very inspirational and gave me lots of practical advice (I am planning to get some alpacas when I retire and process the wool myself). The day just flew by and I'm now completely hooked!
Rebecca was a wonderful coach being calm and very knowledgeable. I have been interested in weaving for years but never tried it and was delighted with the outcome. I will certainly explore this amazing craft further.
This course was fantastic and gave me the basics of weaving. I had never woven twill before!
Rebecca was very clear in her explanations and gave notes at the end which covered all we had achieved. She demystified the weaving charts so we could follow a pattern. I'm going back next month to learn more. She is an excellent, patient teacher.
Thank you Rebecca
I was so excited about spending the morning with Rebecca and having a taster of what loom weaving was like. The workshop did not disappoint! I had a great time and learnt so much. Rebecca patiently walked us through the technicalities of loom weaving (the set up of which is way more complicated than I imagined) and then we had lots of time to get weaving! I would highly recommend this workshop and am now excited to learn more and have another go!!
I loved this course ! Rebecca is a calm and competent tutor who clearly explained each step of the processes before setting us to work. I had tried a bit of weaving in the past, learning from books, but it quickly became clear that a real-life teacher is a MUCH more effective way of learning. Rebecca's studio is in a very peaceful part of the Surrey countryside and after two days in the studio I left feeling relaxed and very pleased with the piece of fabric I had produced. I'd love to go back and would highly recommend.
