I love this class so much! Romey is highly skilled in weaving, a patient and kind teacher and h4ld the space to us to have a darn good yarn while we wove. I made my own little basket with Romey's help for the first time after many, many attempts prior, Romey had the skills to show me exactly how to master the stitch. I highly recommend Romey as a teacher and anyone wanting to learn this fabulous traditional art.

This class with Romey was beautiful. It was a really intimate class size and much more about the connection and yarning - though of course she’s an excellent weaver and amazing teacher. You’ll leave the class with a beautiful basket but also having had a super relaxing and wholesome experience.
