I thoroughly enjoyed my two-hour session with Trish on St Agnes and made a stunning piece of fabric which I’ll be using to make two small cushions once I’ve moved house.
Trish gave excellent tuition and I had free reign of her huge selection of yarns, making a much bigger piece of woven fabric than I’d thought possible.
Response from Twisted Bobbins:Thanks Kathy for taking the time to review. Your weaving was so inspiring - I can still picture those lovely colours in my mind - perfect match for how St. Agnes was when you were weaving! Hopefully see you again next year!
Absolutely brilliant afternoon spent at Twisted Bobbins with Trish and very recommendable for anyone that wants to try something a little different. The environment itself within the workshop is inspirational with a whole variety of colours and materials to weave. I had never used a loom or weaved before but Trish actively encouraged me to use whatever colours or fabrics I liked whilst offering suggestions and ideas. With the hard work of setting up already done you can get straight into weaving and it was surprising how quickly you learn and gain confidence. Trish is great at teaching, answers all your questions and shares lots of information - she is never far away! I was absolutely delighted with my woven cloth from the workshop and plan to make a bag from it over the next few months. The whole experience was incredibly relaxing and yet skills were learnt. I would definitely go back again and try even more ideas out. I travelled from St. Mary's for the day so had a bonus of exploring St. Agnes too. Thanks Trish
Response from Twisted Bobbins:Thanks Sue - you were such a perfect student so made my work very easy!! Your weaving was beautiful and such neat selvedges! Hope this is the start of your weaving journey. Thanks for taking the time to write the review -it means so much as I'm such a small business. See you again hopefully.
