Nicci Bennett reviewed: Handspinning creative yarns

"Such a fab 2 days - really exciting to be able to produce knittable wool with just 2 days tuition. Fiona was so patient and encouraging even when she had to repeat things over and over when I just couldn't remember how to do something. Came home and had bought my wheel within 24 hours - felt really inspired. I really want to go back again when I have had some practice at home and develop further skills"

Shropshire Weavers responded:

" Thanks Nicci. It was lovely to meet you and to get you started on your spinning journey. I look forward to seeing you again. Happy Spinning!"

Denise reviewed: Tapestry Weaving for Beginners with Fiona Nisbet

"A lovely day spent learning introductory methods and techniques for tapestry weaving in a relaxed and friendly environment. Fiona is very knowledgeable and experienced in her craft, immediately putting me, the novice learner, at ease! Along with teaching the basics she gave lots of useful tips and suggestions on how to develop further skills, plus advice on equipment, books and relevant places to visit for inspiration. There were lots of examples of her own work to show what can be achieved using wool and textiles. And the food was delicious! Highly recommended."

Shropshire Weavers responded:

" Thanks Denise. It was lovely to meet you and get you started on your weaving journey. I look forward to seeing you again and showing you more weaving techniques. Let's hope you get a loom for Christmas! Happy Weaving. Best Wishes. Fiona"

Lindsey Loughtman reviewed: Dyeing with Natural Dyes

"Two wonderful days in Fiona's Studio dyeing wool, cotton and fleece with weld and oak (both picked fresh from her garden!), goldenrod, madder, logwood and more. Fiona is a superb teacher - very welcoming and knowledgeable, and her homemade scones and soup were delicious. Recommended if you want to learn the process of dyeing using plants from scratch."

Shropshire Weavers responded:

" I'm so glad you enjoyed your day with your sister. Thanks for the review. Look forward to seeing you both again next year for Dyeing with Indigo. I hope your Mum liked her little handspun silk Hank dyed with Indigo. Happy Dyeing! Warm wishes Fiona"

"I really enjoyed the 1 day introduction course, my piece of work I created from this event is on my wall! I have now booked for the 2nd day. The course teaches you the basics for weaving and provides you with the confidence to try new methods and materials. Fiona is a very knowledgeable tapestry weaver. I can recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn tapestry weaving. Great lunch too."
