We start with an obelisk in the morning which you will create and realise how enjoyable weaving can be and how easy it is to create something that looks so professional.

After lunch there will be a selection of items you can create from a pot cover to a piece of fencing that will give you the confidence to create a larger project at home.

If you have been on one of my courses before and want to make something else call me for a chat and we can discuss your project.
