I signed up to the workshop to get my rigid heddle loom going.
The workshop did exactly that, but on top of it I got lots of tips and hints in a great atmosphere. We made a scarf (still on my loom because I wanted to make it longer), and now I want to do more :)
Cathy and Jessamy (there was another girl but I may spell her name wrong… Ethany?) were great and very helpful, so it is quite likely that they’ll see more of me. I recommend this workshop to people who want to have a go at spinning.

We were a group of 5 and had a lovely day, Jessamy was friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed the lovely refreshments provided through the day. The day went very quickly and we were all really pleased with our efforts at weaving. Our only disappointment was that the finished items were not long enough to be able to wear. Did we talk too much, not weave fast enough.... or even both?!? Thank you for the experience.

I honestly would not have managed to warp up correctly without the help of this video. Instructions were clear and easy to follow and if you warp up along with the video, you can pause whilst you do the next bit and just carry on with the lesson. The warp in the video was just the length of the table and I think it would have been nice just to say if you were for example making a scarf you need roughly 'x' amount of warp and how/where to position the peg with that in mind but I did find that information on the internet myself. At one point a PDF print out was referred to which I didn't actually see in the course but other than those 2 minor points I found the course excellent and would buy future courses from Lazykate without hesitation.
