"Had fun making my bright winter cowl ! Full length scarf next time ! Thanks" Dawn November 2015
"Fab day. Made a scarf fit for a gallery !, with lovely tuition. Thank you" Sue November 2015
"It was a really lovely way to spend a day. In a workshop full of a beautiful collection of yarns and wool and surrounded by different looms. Jane was brilliant at demonstrating how to set up the loom and get weaving. There were three of us in the workshop (none with any previous experience) and we all made totally different scarves - which I thought was fascinating. We all worked at our own pace and it was a very relaxed environment with an endless supply of cups of tea and biscuits. AND you we all went home with a scarf! " Virginia - January 2016

I attended the 1-day weaving workshop with Jane and it was a wonderful experience. I had absolutely no prior knowledge or background in textiles, and by the end of the workshop I had woven a really beautiful scarf! The workshop was informative and Jane was a great teacher, patient and also flexible to let everyone create with their own style and ideas. We were led step-by-step, the studio itself was a great environment, and I truly enjoyed the entire workshop. I'm now really keen to attend more classes.
