Yesterday I attended the willow basket weaving workshop here with Deb Hart. It was really good fun and everyone managed to produce a basket!
This is the second workshop I have done here with Deb and both have been lovely experiences. Brian and Julie provide a warm and welcoming venue with an excellent and plentiful supply of food and beverages. My gluten free diet was no problem at all.
Deb's teaching was inclusive and cheerful and when any of the group needed help she was there to get us on track again. Thank you all for a fun and productive day. I will be back. X

Most enjoyable day full of helpful instructions, particularly for those of us who were a little slow. Great food yet again provided by Brian and Julie. Look forward to returning in May.

We had a fantastic day yesterday on the basket weaving course with Deb Hart. I made a whole basket and had never weaved before and I loved it.
The craft barn is beautifully decorated and the food was incredible. Pastries and cakes and a full lunch - superb!
The day was worth every penny and I will be returning!
Thank you Brian & Julie!

Willow Basket Making – 21st April 2015

We spent a very interesting day on Tuesday weaving our willow baskets to take home! Julie and Brian were perfect hosts and we were treated to an excellent home-cooked lunch and home made cakes with tea. Deb was our instructor and we all enjoyed our day which went far too quickly.
