3 Hour 'Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving' at Crispin Hall, Street, Somerset (Course inactive)

Would highly recommend this course.Ellie is a very knowledgeable & enthusiastic tutor and made us all feel very welcome. The materials supplied were very good and the information sheets were very helpful enabling us to complete the project at home if we hadn't finished.
It was a very enjoyable time and I left inspired to do other weaving projects in the future.

3 Hour Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving at Craft-T in Christchurch

This course has sparked a new hobby for me, and those are rare. Ellie was clearly very knowledgeable and passionate but explained everything in a clear and easy to understand way. She even spent ten minutes cutting thread for my tassles so I wouldn't be short on weaving time. It was the perfect balance of guidance and letting me go at it, and I enjoyed it immensely. I would recommend this course to absolutely anyone interested.

3 Hour 'Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving' at Crispin Hall, Street, Somerset (Course inactive)

This was given to me as a birthday gift and I persuaded a friend to accompany me. We had a delightful evening. Ellie was a talented weaver and also a good communicator as we learned from scratch and produced a piece of work to take home. I appreciated her attitude to recycling and use of organic materials, some of which her mother had naturally dyed. I would definitely recommend this as a good introduction to weaving.

3 Hour 'Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving' at Crispin Hall, Street, Somerset (Course inactive)

Ellie is a great teacher, well prepared and clear in her instructions yet relaxed and able to respond to individual needs. We came away with enough knowledge to carry on with our weaving and some even finished their first wall hanging piece. She also gave us a worksheet and resources for future weaving.
It was an excellent morning and well worth the effort to go on Sunday!

Thanks so much for a lovely day. A great welcome with drinks, fresh fruit salad, croissant and more! Everything in the studio was so well set up and instructions very clear, I really feel I’ve come away with enough knowledge to make my own little wall hangings at home. Also a delicious lunch!

Six hour introduction to frame loom weaving at Julia Davey, Bath

I attended the same course as Catherine at Fisherton Mill and totally echo her review. The group is small enough for individual attention from Ellie, but large enough to get a wide variety of weaving. My head is now so full of ideas I don’t know where to start! Fabulous day - will definitely book again with Ellie.

Very enjoyable day. Ellie is a lovely teacher, very friendly and knowledgeable, and obviously very talented. The class was run in a relaxed way, with plenty of resources, and a small enough number to receive individual attention. I would definitely book again with Ellie.

What a wonderful well prepared put together course. I could see how much thought and prep had gone into giving us as much info and practical to introduce us to the joy of natural dyeing. The day went so quickly, lunch was delicious and I’m totally in love with my samples. Thank you.

Introduction to natural dyeing at Turner & Thom near Stockbridge

I loved the workshop! Claudia was a brilliant teacher. I learnt so much but also had a lot of fun doing the practical elements. She gave us handouts with all the information we needed to continue experimenting at home. The location was beautiful and inspiring and Margaret’s food was delicious! It was a lovely opportunity to meet like minded people and explore another creative skill. I will definitely be back!
