A very enjoyable, relaxed and mindful day with Adrienne, who was very attentive, patient and helpful. My twelve-year old son (whose idea it was to attend the course) was also very happy with the results! Many thanks Adrienne!

Adrienne spent time in the Northern Territory and learnt to weave from indigenous women. The class is focussed on producing a small work using traditional methods. I found the class minimally useful as Adrienne was very brief in her instructions and when asked for instruction she tended to jump in and do the work instead of guiding the students through. Some written guidance in the form of handouts might have been helpful as would some larger working models of the steps needed. I thought the class was lacking structure and clear direction. Adrienne is a warm person but needs to explain and structure her classes more.
