Belinda Rose is a gifted weaver and a born teacher. I was in her class digital weaving on the TC2 and had a simple and clear introduction to the computer preparations to be made before starting to weave. I had done this several times before but always forgot some details so my confidence was gone. Belinda’s patience with me did put me at ease and I finally understood the process. What a pleasure if it works out well!
Before starting to weave Belinda showed weave structures, among them several refined weaves like taqueté and samit, that I considered far too complicated for me as a beginner in digital weaving. Here again she made it clear that nothing is too difficult with this equipment and that these weaves can be fun to use. Again I made it and have some wonderful samples now, of which Belinda suggested that I should wash and iron to make them look even more textile, which they did! I am looking forward to my next stay in her studio.

I have attended a number of Belinda’s weaving classes and workshops when we have studied a number of different weave structures.
I can vouch for Belinda’s enthusiasm as a teacher and her patience in helping me resolve any weaving problems that I have encountered. Belinda has always been very willing to answer my weaving queries either in class or via email.
I should also say that the location of the studio is inspirational, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Belinda’s classes to anyone who is interested in learning to weave or to those who wish to develop their skills in weaving.
I will certainly be back!

I came for weaving days with Belinda as a complete beginner and now have a fascinating new hobby.
Belinda listens carefully to what you wish to get out of each workshop and shares her knowledge and expertise.
I would recommend her taster day to anyone wishing to learn a new craft and work with colour.
I was needing a refresher course putting my ideas on warp and weft into practice.
Belinda was able to explain how to calculate the amount of warp needed, lead me through the warping maze and debunk some of my ‘out of date’ understandings of techniques. I have finished my project and am planning my next one now.
My enthusiasm for warp and weft has returned.
