Paula reviewed: Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving

"I spent a lovely relaxing day on this beginners' weaving course and enjoyed every minute. Alice is a great tutor who explained everything clearly and fully and was patient while I grasped the basics. The day covered everything I had wanted to learn, how to set up the loom, how to weave with different colours and patterns and how to finish the piece of work. I am now ready to practise alone but would love to do another workshop. The venue is excellent, close to public transport links in Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard. A great day, thoroughly recommended.

"What a lovely relaxing day and you lose yourself in weaving which is wonderful. Alice is a great teacher, kind and patient. She taught a variety of weave stitches and we all made beautiful weaves. Thank you Alice! "

Louise reviewed: Introduction to Frame Loom Weaving

"Alice is clearly very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging throughout the day. The weaving workshop is very mindful and the day goes very quickly. The choice of yarn is huge, there is every colour you can image and more. Highly recommend this course for anyone."

Mathilde reviewed: Macrame Pot Hanger Workshop

"I really enjoyed this workshop today. Alice is really engaging, patient and all the instructions were very clear to understand. It was a relaxing experience and it felt good to be able to have something home made at the end! Really pleased with the result, and I can't wait to get started to make some more pot hangers for my family. Alice has such a unique artistic experience, I really enjoyed discussing with her about her journey. Thank you Alice!"
