    A really enjoyable course that gives a complete beginner enough knowledge to create a weaving with a variety of techniques.

    Great introduction! Even more fun than I imagined.

  4. Jenny Bennett

    I really enjoyed the course and learnt so much. Dee was very patient and the instructions were great which meant that I gained confidence even though I am not naturally ‘crafty’. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants to give weaving a try.

    I really enjoyed this workshop. I made something I could be proud of and learnt a lot making me eager to do more. Dee was so helpful and her teaching was really clear. I would recommend anyone to do it or any other course at Straight Curves

    Attended the workshop with my mum and as absolute beginners we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, Dee was a fantastic tutor giving excellent instructions and plenty of help where needed. I came away having learnt plenty without feeling overwhelmed and I have a lovely little tapestry that will have pride of place in the hallway!

    Just to tell you what a great time I had on Saturday at the weaving workshop with Dee Sayce. The day was very well organised both in terms of time and equipment, however at the same time Dee’s warm, relaxed personality created a stress free environment despite the amazing amount of work we covered. I also appreciated going home with the wherewithal to continue weaving that evening! Many thanks Dee.

    Attended the full day workshop for tapestry weaving. Dee, our tutor packed in a lot however there was no pressure to keep up with the pace and to go at ones own speed. Learnt not only about the different types of stitching but also about the history of tapestry which was very interesting. We practiced as we learned the techniques. Dee was extremely patient and the atmosphere was friendly and supportive. Hope to attend another to build on what I have learnt once I have mastered the current stitches. Thanks Dee
