Reviews

"I really enjoyed learning new textile art techniques and also meeting international students who had flown all the way from Portugal, France and Holland just to be here. I am currently studying A-levels and I have included weaving into my school textile sketchbook, a new technique that I can now demonstrate, as well as introducing new textures and aesthetics." - Kelis Darko, Northampton
