Because of corona restrictions, all workshops are still closed for 2021.
I am hoping to start again but as of now can’t yet set any dates.
If you have booked a workshop please get in touch to receive a refund.

If you would like to weave at home you can find more info and tutorials on my YouTube channel, or have a look at my online courses.skills.

What Previous Participants Are Saying

I absolutely loved your online course. It definitely suited my lifestyle. There wasn’t any part of the course that I didn’t enjoy. All the challenges in your projects allowed me to build and incorporate learned skills into following projects. I loved being able to work in my own time and space with the knowledge that if I ran into difficulties in any area I could message you and get an almost immediate reply. It was my first online course, so I didn’t know what to expect, but I now consider it money very well spent. Your guidance, delivery, clarity and enthusiasm was excellent. The format easy to follow and I have unreservedly recommended your online course to anybody who has asked where I learned my weaving skills.

Trish

I’ve absolutely loved the course. Learning to weave has helped me through what has otherwise been a difficult year – so thank you!! The videos are excellent and clear and I also really liked your more philosophical points about practise and mistakes etc! I also really enjoyed the online format for sharing projects with other members, and the fact that I could go at my own pace and fit in the weaving around other plans. I think an added bonus to the online format is that it forced me to learn to manage my own willow – ordering, sorting, soaking – along the way, so I have learned skills that I may not have done through a conventional course.

Anna

I though it worked out perfectly and your videos were perfect. I love the angles of the cameras and how well you explained each step. I also liked how the course built upon itself.

Sandra

I loved the course because there was always another project coming it made me practice all the more. And the really good thing is that I have the videos to go back to forever. That is a real winner.

Ian

My work is about healing through rebuilding our connection to nature.
