"Excellent couple of hours. Targeted tuition plus lots of additional ideas. Worth saying if you are tall as a couple of looms have greater height."

Wayward Weaves responded:

"Thanks Fran. It was great to have you in the studio again :) So many creative ideas! Hope to see you again soon"

"I went to this course with two friends and we had the most wonderful time. The welcome was warm and welcoming, the instructions were clear and straightforward and we spent a very happy couple of hours weaving away and chatting. We all came home with weaved pieces we were very happy with. Highly recommended. "

"Wow! What a fantastic experience. Nicola was superb, great introduction to Saori, extremely supportive environment allowing you to produce beautifully weaved outcomes. The looms are a great way to allow all abilities to create beautiful textiles pieces in a variety of colour palettes. Nicola provides differentiated tasks and allows you to progress at your own speed and introduces a variety of more complex ways of weaving. The beauty and uniqueness of this technique allows you to take risks with your work, try something new and relax, exploring a world of gorgeous textures and materials. I would highly recommend this workshop, it was great fun and can't wait to attend more! Thanks Nicola!"

"Spent 2 hours weaving at Nicolas workshop - what a treat. Nicola is an inspiring and talented weaver, she was there when you needed help and then allowed you to get on with it in your own time, a gentle, reassuring teacher. Will certainly go back Thank you Nicola!"

Wayward Weaves responded:

"Thanks so much, Linda, it was great to have you in the studio. Still amazed that you did such a long piece in 2 hours! Hopefully see you again soon."

"Thank you Nicola for a very relaxing and creative morning weaving. The looms are excellent and so easy to use and I particularly enjoyed the technique you taught me of adding another colour in the middle of the row. I have now tried a cotton warp and a wool one, both giving me really pleasing results."

"I am a complete beginner regarding weaving, and I made a lovely piece in the two hour workshop. It's very satisfying, also fun. Nicola runs the class so well, a light touch, allowing you to experiment, but she's there as soon as you need help. I loved it!"

Ally Oliver reviewed: SAORI Weaving Discovery Session

"I thoroughly enjoyed the SAORI Weaving Discovery Session. Nicola introduced us to a good variety of weaving threads and looms, then guided us beautifully through this freestyle approach to weaving. I loved the ease and freedom of weaving in this more intuitive way, and the fact that so-called 'mistakes' can become creations. It was fascinating to see the emergence of such different weaves appearing on the looms of each individual as well as the potentials of what objects of art they could become ... all as unique expressions of creativity!"

"I had a very enjoyable session 1 to 1 with Nicola. Knowing I had a rigid heddle loom, she shared techniques that I could use at home. I came away with a sampler that showed all these techniques and a plan to take what I learned further. I’d highly recommend this course"
