Jane Adams reviewed: One on One Weaving Workshop

"I attended a one-to-one 2-day weaving course in May 2017. The course was both excellent and inspiring. As a novice, I felt the need to have dedicated attention at a pace that suited me (slow). Not only did I get to learn about the setting up of a loom (which is fairly complicated and time-consuming), proof, if that is needed, that the effort of weaving is extremely labour-intensive and that much of that labour is hidden when one buys a woven item, but I also managed to weave a sample in colours of my own choosing, which clearly demonstrated how different weave patterns interact with selected colours - often in very pleasing ways aesthetically. I could not have asked for a more patient teacher. I cannot recommend this course highly enough. And I will find any excuse to organise a 'refresher' when the time comes!"

"I took this course a few weeks ago and had the best day. I enjoyed every part of the course from learning the setting up process to experimenting with lots of lovely colours and yarns. I can't wait to do some more weaving."

"I was given my day of weaving as a gift - and it has been a most wonderful treat! On arrival (15mins from Station), I marvelled at Katherines fabulous work on sale in her shop before joining a small group in the well equiped workshop downstairs. After Katherines excellent explanatory talk we each began our chance of weaving a piece. It was exciting selecting yarns from the large choice available and then settling to a spell of creativity! Katherines help is near should you need it, and I appreciated her encouraging and most helpful manner. Time flies, its peaceful, friendly, fun and hugely engrossing. I'm amazed at my achievement! A very happy day! Many thanks Katherine."

"I had a great time at Katherine's weaving workshop. As a complete novice it was a great way to try weaving and get to know a little more about the whole process from making the warp to cutting off the fabric. I was really impressed with what I achieved in the time and it was lovely to have a piece of my very own fabric to take away!"
