"Loved this! Alice is a great teacher, explaining as you go and suggesting different techniques to try which is exactly what I wanted as an introduction. Huge range of wools to choose from. Definitely thinking of going back for a second day."

"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.

"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!"

"Thank you so much. Really enjoyable, so therapeutic. Step by step instructions throughout, relaxed atmosphere with offers of tea throughout the day. Didn't feel rushed, variety of lots of different yarns to choose from. The class wasn't over numbered either so each individual received the help and time they needed. We all went home with a beautiful individual piece of wall art. Thank you for a lovely day 🙂"

"What a joyful way to spend a few hours, Alice is patient and super helpful and her studio was a little haven for macrame-ing with a friendly group of crafters. Thank you for the experience! My daughter and I have since made a wall hanging- yay!! "

"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!"

"Just done this macramé pot hanger course. Was so pleased to walk away with a finished item. Never thought I would when I started. Got some confidence to carry on now. Will look out for more. Always helps to have a tutor by your elbow for those blank moments....."

"I thoroughly recommend this course. I am new to weaving and appreciated Alice’s welcoming, knowledgeable and patient approach. The group size allowed each of us to go at our own pace which I found invaluable. Such a lovely relaxing way to spend a Saturday in a great venue too. Thank you Alice - I have found a new hobby :) "

"Lovely group of five sitting around a table perfectly set up for our hanging macrame making. Alice is very clear and patient and we all achieved our hangers in about 2 hours (however my shoulders are aching this morning - I am getting old now over 65). I’m really pleased with my achievement and plan to make several more on my own and with friends. Thank you Alice"

"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."

"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. "
