Hi Siv,
I received the Beginners Weaving Kit, since then I have been enjoying learning in the comfort of my own home. I made a few mistakes but learned how to correct it.
Very enjoyable, I am beginning to get confident as I learn.

Response from Shiv Textiles:

Hi Connie,
I'm so glad you received your weaving kit safe and sound.
There is lots of helpful videos on YouTube!
Sometimes mistakes can be happy addicted in creating textures and different surfaces. Keep weaving!

Kindest regards

Siobhan

This is a great little kit and I am impressed with the comprehensive instruction and information booklet that came with it. I have done lots of crafting, patchwork, quilting etc during lockdown but wanted to try something new that would keep me absorbed. This is perfect.

Lovely little kit. I have really enjoyed learning this new craft and the kit provides everything you need. More help is also available on numerous videos on line so you can't get stuck and can progress and get tips for things to make! Good communication with Siobhan. Recommended if you want something relaxing to occupy yourself.

Large loom - very impressed with the quality of this simple and practical loom. Siobhan's enthusiastic service has been kind and encouraging. Friends are already wanting to have a go so I hope that leads to more happy weavers.

I took my sister-in-law to the class as a birthday present for her. It was a great success and we really enjoyed the creative time we had. Siobhan is really welcoming and a very good teacher. There was lots of 1-2-1 time, Siobhan gave us tips and ideas with a large selection of beautiful yarns to use. A lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

I went along to the weaving course with my 11 year old daughter. We had a lovely afternoon making mini wall hangings in a very cool creative space.

Response from Shiv Textiles:

Thanks for your review and thanks for coming. I love sharing my love of textiles with others.
I don't think the other students on the course were miserable, they just didn't know each other. Weaving takes a lot of conscious, some students end up working in silents as they find it easier.
I'm so sorry you were cold, the heater was at the other end of the room. For my next workshop, I will make sure there is another heaters at the other end of the room.
Thanks again for your helpful feedback.

Kind regards

Siobhan

Thoroughly recommend! Was so lovely to do something different. Shiv was a great teacher, really patient and clear with her instructions. I went with friends and we all felt a great sense of achievement with our finished product. Some of us made wall hangings and others made coasters. Would definitely recommend if you fancy doing something creative. Thanks again Shiv!

My wife and I spent a sweet afternoon with our hand looms at Shiv’s weaving workshop recently. We enjoyed therapeutic, chilled and productive process and we were really happy with our unique wall hangings that reflected our totally different styles. I’d definitely recommend this as an unusual and interesting weekend activity.

Really friendly atmosphere. I found some parts of the weaving quite tricky, but there was a good balance of group teaching and one to one so we managed to get the hang of it! Great way to spend an afternoon.
