Lots of good content on the course and good detailed advice. Ashleigh had ensured all materials were ready for a range of techniques to try. The day ran smoothly and it was really enjoyable to work outdoors. It is very useful to get handouts and info about where to buy materials. Definitely recommend this course and you get value for money.

This was booked more for curiosity about tartan than anything. Ashleigh obviously loves his work and wants to share his knowledge. A very enjoyable experience from learning some history, to designing my own tartan. I (with Ashleighs help) am now going to register the design & hopefully get the weave made up. He has patience and amazing software to make the whole process fascinating.

Thank you Ashleigh for a very interesting and comprehensive overview of the processes involved in tartan design and registration. I have enjoyed learning something new from a patient and experienced teacher! This has been my first venture into online craft courses and it was a very positive experience that I would not hesitate to repeat.

This is a fantastic course that will guide you through the entire process from concept to designing and registering your own tartan. Ashleigh is a great tutor and goes above and beyond to help you bring your vision to life and I am thrilled with the tartan I have created. Even after the course has finished Ashleigh has been at the end of a phone or e-mail to help. Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in tartan or craft.

I had been looking forward to the weaving course since before Christmas as it was a gift from my husband and it didn't disappoint. The loom was prepared on arrival and there were lots of different types and colours of yarn to choose from. The instruction was given in a very friendly and clear way together with explanatory notes and patterns to use. I was thrilled to cover a great deal and left having ordered a loom - need I say more!?

Great day, specifically tailored to me and my style. Learned lots about weaving and the different techniques used, allowing me to create a beautiful cloth with a variety of different weaves. Would highly recommend for new beginners!

I spent a day with Ashleigh. He tailored the teaching to my requirements, was very accommodating, helpful, and enthusiastic. I loved every minute of being in his studio. I was sad when the day was over. I produced a lovely sample of cloth.

My 16 year old son attended this course. He is interested in taking up weaving as a career. Ashleigh created a one to one day for him, letting him try different looms & techniques. He had a lovely lunch included in the price. He brought home samples he'd woven & handouts & lots of useful advice. He got a great follow up email with loads of links & can go back for a follow up course for £30. A great course run by a really nice guy. A really good way to get into weaving.

I found the tuition really useful and helpful - you answered all my questions and with patience. Although it is early days yet I find I am remembering well - I have my loom up and running at home. I am now totally hooked on weaving!
