This is what some of our lovely students have said about their workshops… Thank you all!

‘What a wonderful day at the Saori weaving workshop in Napton village hall. Amanda created a great atmosphere with lots of interesting pieces to show us. Lovely books and a myriad of beautiful materials to use.Amanda’s instruction was all clear, inviting and inspirational. The day went like a dream, I could have continued for the weekend. Having thoroughly enjoyed myself, at the end of the day, I also had a piece of cloth that I am pleased to hang in my hall for a while. Until my next one is made anyway. I’m certainly booking again, this is a wonderful workshop and suitable for complete beginners like me, or even maybe those with a bit of experience. Thank you Amanda’

“A super, well-run course and inspirational.’

‘My time with Amanda and our wonderful group of weavers was the perfect day. A beautiful day in the countryside with lovely people, creating straight from the heart. The day flowed effortlessly and Amanda was always on hand to offer advice, history and other titbits of knowledge about the world of Saori.The spirit of Saori was in every aspect of our day together. Encouragement, peace, tranquillity and unbridled creativity. I thank Amanda from the bottom of my heart for introducing me to an art that I can be proud of. I hope I can come back again soon!’

‘So inspiring!! – Maybe I’m a Weaver after all! Thank you for an amazing day – pitched perfectly for our group.’

‘A perfect day… I was lost in world of colour, relaxation and mindful creativity. I went home with a beautiful piece of textile art of which I am very proud (and I am a very harsh critic!!) and a real sense of joy. I felt comfortable and well looked after during the day, learning so much in an enjoyable and supportive atmosphere. Amanda shares her knowledge and love of weaving with such warmth and brightness that it is impossible not be inspired. I enjoyed every moment and can’t wait to return… thank you very much!’

‘If you are looking for a warm welcome with gentle, clear instruction and heaps of encouragement – this day course has it all. Amanda is a lovely person; a brilliant teacher. Her aim is for you to get the most out of your day; to achieve a piece of work you will be proud to call your own. I didn’t want to leave; could have happily stayed for the whole weekend – and I am a total novice to both weaving and going on Day courses.If you are thinking about it – DO IT!’

‘What a fun day. Thank you.’
