"This was an excellent introduction to weaving. Jeremy as well as talented weaver is a great teacher, clear explanations and always starting where I was at, as the learner. It was an inspiring day and motivational and it has really encouraged me to do more. He was generous with his time and had range of ways to explain any complex designs. I would thoroughly recommend the day both as a lovely crafting experience and definitely as a way to learn more about weaving. Also taught in beautiful big light space with 1st class coffee."
"Had a fab day with Jeremy learning the basics of weaving. Starting from knowing nothing I quickly learned my warp from weft and how threading and lifting change a design. Another hobby to add to my other yarnie ones as soon as I have a loom of my own that is (please Santa.......?)
Jeremy is a gentle and patient tutor, helping as needed but leaving you to get on with it too - somehow knowing when all is well and when things are going wrong !!. His range of samples to study is a delight and inspiration."
Jeremy Uden Designer/Handweaver responded:
" Thanks Kaye. I'm really glad you enjoyed it! Jem"
"Neither of us had any experience of weaving, so this taster course provided by Jeremy was just the right level for us both. The looms had been prepared with different warp patterns to help us discover variations in finished weave from both changes to the warp and weft.
After an explanation on how the looms had been prepared and how to work the leavers we were straight into weaving, starting with plain weave and changing to more complex lift sequences during the course of the day. We both completed a sampler to take home to study and keep as a memory of an interesting day.
We enjoyed talking about design and seeing many examples of Jeremy’s work and looking at his mood boards discovering the inspiration for his beautiful finished pieces.
He is a great tutor and his light and airy studio a wonderful venue for a fun and really enjoyable day’s weaving experience."
"Two of us had a wonderful day weaving, starting with all the basics and progressing to a wide range of different structures. Jeremy was an excellent teacher, responsive to individual skills, interests and stamina, and using many completed examples of his own."
