The session was fun and went into the meditative with the weaving. It was hard to leave once everyone had the hang of it. The weaving itself is well explained and the basket starts coming together quickly. I went without any knowledge but got the hang of it quickly. The colourful materials provided made for vibrant pieces around the room. Adrienne was a warm and patient teacher who has a lot of talent in these arts. A really cool and useful skill to learn!

I enjoyed the class and learning the process. I am absolute novice, with very little craft skill background. Adrienne was patient when I had to ask her repeatedly to demonstrate how to integrate new threads. I picked up quite a lot from other people's questions and experiences. I will keep going with the basket in evenings when I have time to finish it and am keen to try different grasses. Thanks for running it Adrienne. Joy
