06 September 2020 • Certificate of 4 Shaft Weaving - 1 year Course

Absolutely brilliant! Everything I wanted. Dedicated teachers, in-depth material, and the Guild is a great environment. Plus they adapted to pandemic conditions intelligently and generously!


31 August 2020 • Certificate of 4 Shaft Weaving - 1 year Course

The Certificate of 4 Shaft Weaving course has been stimulating, educational and fun. Ilka's instruction is clear and generous, and her love of weaving enhances everything. She has done an amazing job of translating in-person classes to online instruction mid-course, successfully adapting to new technology with patience and flexibility. The classes covered an extensive range of weaving structures and delved into general subjects such as managing colour, reading drafts, yarn qualities and designing fabrics. I've come away inspired and confident in my weaving ability and knowledge, and am very much looking forward embarking upon the Certificate of 8 Shaft Weaving course.


22 August 2020 • Braided Rag Rugs with Ilka White

Great Class with Ilka. Simple instructions, good graphics and step by step workings. Lots of questions and everyone made progress and have enough information to complete the task. Good therapy and use of recycling. Addictive enough to want to continue and destash. Ursula
