Janette Knight reviewed: Macrame Pot Hanger Workshop

"Completed the macrame plant pot hanger workshop with the lovely Alice. Alice is very talented and a great teacher of this craft. I found this very calming and enjoyed our time together learning a new skill to make plant pot hangers. I will be making many more for family and friends. This workshop is highly recommend. Thank you Alice for sharing your craft knowledge and experience. "

Zoe reviewed: Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving

"A lovely way to spend a day! Alice is a fantastic teacher - patient and encouraging, and ready to help when needed. The process of weaving is itself really calming, and it felt very satisfying to go home with a finished piece. Would highly recommend!"

Clare reviewed: Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving

"I had such a great, relaxing day. This was a first time go at weaving but Alice was a calm and patient teacher and by the end of the day I had completed a lovely piece to take home. There are lots of great places to have lunch very near by or you can picnic on the beach right next door. Highly Recommended!"

"I was a complete weaving novice at the start of this lovely introductory day! Alice’s relaxed approach in her beautiful studio created the perfect learning experience and I felt a real sense of accomplishment when I took a finished sample home. So inspiring!"
