3 hour introduction to frame loom weaving, Fisherton Mill, Salisbury (Course inactive)

In-person course
- - #20645

Small group, so plenty of one to one help.
We were guided through the process learning a variety of tapestry skills
and there were excellent resources.
A stress free very productive day. Ellie is an excellent tutor with a solid background in textiles willing to share all her experience.
Bonus. Ellie is a cheerful, supportive and encouraging lady.
Thank you.
Cynthia

Such an enjoyable workshop last night. Ellie is very patient and so inspiring, a lovely lady. I came away with a finished wall hanging which I love. The yarns I used were beautiful and there was so much to choose from.

As I suffer with severe rheumatoid arthritis, particularly in my hands and arms, I approached this course with some trepidation. But I needn't have worried. Ellie was wonderful and so helpful and understanding enabling me to fully participate. The course was inspiring, so many interesting ideas so that each of us could work on our own ideas and produce a piece of work to our own tastes.

Response from Elka:

Thank you so much Roz for the review. It was a pleasure meeting you and i’m so glad you enjoyed the workshop. Very best wishes, Ellie

An amazing class enjoyed every minute, I learnt so much in just 3 hours,
Thanks Elka.
P.s. The homemade madeleines were to die for, an added bonus as no one ever caters for celiacs.

I really enjoyed the course and learnt a lot - so that I can use the loom I bought from the course.
And the back-up afterwards was great too.

Response from Elka:

Ellie provided an excellent introduction to frame loom weaving for beginners. A super selection of natural materials was available for the class to use, and help and encouragement was given when needed. There was an option to buy equipment at the end for those who wanted to continue with their piece of work. Three hours went very quickly (as did the delicious lemon cake!)

Thank you for an enjoyable morning Ellie, I would recommend this for beginners to weaving.

Response from Elka:

I have never known three hours go so quickly! Ellie was a great teacher, knowing when to help and when to let us get on with it. There was a vast selection of different yarns and threads to use. I loved it so much I bought my loom. And the cake was delicious too!

Ellie is a lovely and enthusiastic tutor and I really enjoyed the workshop. My only suggestion would be perhaps not to offer drinks straight away so that she is on hand to welcome everyone and find out what made people want to come to the class and find out names. Once everyone got started there was a natural break to go and make teas etc. The choice of materials was excellent as was the equipment provided. I'm sure anyone wishing to learn a bit about weaving would benefit from this workshop.

Response from Elka:

Hi Jane thank you very much for the review. Apologies for being on tea duty when you arrived. I like to offer everyone refreshments on arrival as some have traveled several hours to get there. I have taken your comments on board and will make sure everyone has been introduced properly moving forwards. It was great to meet you and I'm glad you enjoyed working with all the materials.

It was a wonderful evening workshop. Both informative and enjoyable. We learned the basics of weaving and had enough time to create our own small wall hanging choosing from a great selection of materials provided by Ellie. I would definitely do more workshops.
