Student testimonials

Here’s a small sampling of the unsolicited comments received from satisfied students.

I learned so much and enjoyed the great facilities and company. Such a pity Shelburne Falls is so far away from Australia. Many thanks for all.

I feel I’ve been exposed to a whole new way of living … an experience that goes beyond the art of weaving alone! Thank you for this opportunity.

Thank you so much for this wonderful week with you at Vävstuga! I have learned so much. I am excited to go home and continue my weaving journey. You have created a beautiful, thoughtful, nourishing school, full of humor and kindness, patience and compassion. The meals are excellent — delicious and creative. I’m looking forward to coming back for another class! Thank you.

I cannot tell you how wonderful I thought it all was. … You are a great teacher, and you have so much patience, that you were a great encouragement to all of us …. I am a novice weaver, and [the other members of my guild] have been weavers for years. However, they were very impressed at what I had woven and what we accomplished in just one week.

I think we left with each of us feeling a little amazed that with your help, we were able to complete so many lovely items.

I can’t thank you enough for providing me with the greatest sense of achievement I’ve ever had in my life. …You are a wonderful teacher. Not only do you have the necessary knowledge, organization, and communication skills but your kindness, good spirits and sense of fun make the learning process such a special one.

What a treat to come into your studio and have you share so much of your knowledge, your humor, your space and your life. It is a rare gift that you have to make each individual feel special.
—B.S. in PA

Thank you for giving me such a wonderful week of weaving. It’s the best instruction I’ve received, plus I loved the atmosphere. I feel I’ve received a solid foundation in the techniques of Scandinavian weaving. And they are such good techniques — everything you suggested worked and felt really good.
—C.P. in KS

Your “pearls” on good weaving technique have given me skills to work on here (I can already see a significant improvement in my speed and my selvages). I loved your drafting classes. I want to understand the mechanics of the process so that I can design my own projects. It also was a great break from physical to mental learning. … You just thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and rewarding.
