Flora reviewed: Weaving: the journey begins

"I thoroughly enjoyed my weaving session with Ashleigh. The Nest studio is a welcoming space. Ashleigh is a Master Weaver and an excellent teacher. As a beginner I benefited from Ashleigh’s patient and relaxed style of tuition. The loom was ready warped and Ashleigh guided me through enough weave patterns to produce a lovely sampler. It was great to be so hands on as a learner at the loom. He also provided written materials for me to take home. This was especially helpful for reflecting back on the day. I will take another course with Ashleigh and build on what I have learned."

"My grandaughter and I had a brilliant day thanks to Ashleigh! We may be booking again if (when) we get a loom of our own. "
