Judith Carnt reviewed: Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving

"I spent a wonderful relaxing day last Saturday with Alice. Weaving is something I had not done before, but all was explained patiently and calmly. The choice of material/wool was amazing, dipping into a bag like children at Christmas!! I am thrilled with my finished sample including tassels, It will be a reminder a special workshop."

Yvonne Adams reviewed: Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving

"I have just had a lovely day learning how to weave. It was satisfying to leave with a finished piece and the hours flew by. The venue was cosy and I met a small group of like minded people. Alice made the weaving seem easy and made excellent tea!! Thank you."

Rachel C reviewed: Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving

"I recently attended this course with my friend and we both had a really enjoyable experience. Alice was patient and clear with her instructions. We both came away with pieces of work we are very pleased with. We met some lovely people and am now intending to buy a beautiful hand loom-made with repurposed wood- to continue on learning and making. We would both highly recommend. "
