The two hours with Mary was wonderfully relaxing and a great introduction to the basics of weaving. I loved it so much that I bought the loom so that I can carry on at home. Mary is a talented teacher and textile artist. I would definitely recommend to any beginners.

Mary was attentive and gave good guidance. She bought lots of lovely materials too. Just really wish we had longer to do our weaves as I really enjoyed the process but only got to make a very small weave. Its worth noting we did have the option to buy the loom instead of cutting out our small designs! Can't wait to do a longer session! :)
