Sky was clear and easy to get along with.
Material was available to all. It was fun and the time went by quickly.
This pic I provided was that of my work colleague who went home and completed the basket and placed her loved plant in it. Well done Tulin! Overall a really fun workshop to attend.

Skye was an excellent teacher- providing clear instructions and creating a friendly, relaxed atmosphere in her studio. We were given a choice of materials and could take sufficient materials home to finish our projects. The technique is quite easy but produces a fun result. Skye's own work around the room was inspiring. I would recommend this class.

Sky's class was fantastic! We had such a nice little group and Sky's teaching was really great, she explained things really straightforwardly and was so fun and friendly. Her studio was so cool and there was every colour and material you could want to create an amazing wallhanging. I highly recommend it!

If you are going to learn to weave, do yourself a favour and pop in to Skye's cosy studio for a class. You will leave with a cute first project and she explains everything as you go. No prior knowledge necessary. Good quality materials also.

What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday learning from Sky. Her enthusiasm and creativity just flowed in this class to create in us a desire to create.

Her teaching definately made me want to explore all the other classes Sky has to offer




Natalie Hutchinson

Textiles class


The private course on weaving was wonderful. Sky was very warm and welcoming and shared a huge amount of knowledge and ideas with us.
We learnt many different methods of weaving, knotting, setting up and finishing projects and practical ideas for us to implement with our own school students.
She was patient when we needed an extra demo and assisted us in developing our wall hangings.
All the materials were provided and we also took away a pack so we can use at home. The class was value for money and up-skilled us to tackle our own projects.

Sky was amazing!
We organised a corporate class and Sky came to our office with all the materials. We had great feedback from all the participants :) Thanks Sky!

This workshop is a great way to spend a Saturday. Sky is a welcoming host, providing delicious tea and snacks, and her studio is peaceful and inviting. It's satisfying to go from no weaving experience to finishing a small hanging in just a few hours. Highly recommended!

Sky is an amazing teacher. Very motivating and the class was great fun.
A great way to spend a Saturday and learn something new.
the path of the class was amazing and everyone got really involved and managed to finish a wall piece to hang.
Ssssssh: Sky sweetens up the class with delicious fresh Portugese Tarts ;-)

This workshop was so much fun! Sky is a wonderful teacher. We learned the basics of weaving and lots of techniques to create different effects. The studio and the class had a lovely feel about it, like catching up with friends (the cake and tea was a beautiful extra touch!). I can’t wait to try out more classes with Sky!
