I took part in the foraged basket course with my mum and sister. It was a great weekend and a lovely way to spend some quality time with family and meet new people. Joe is a great teacher, highly skilled and very friendly. Weaving is such a lovely, theraupic process! Great for the soul! I can't wait to go back. I highly recommend.

Response from Creative with Nature:

Thank you Elaine! you're feedback is very welcome. Well done on another gorgeous basket. xx

I had such a good time on this course - The satisfaction from weaving with willow and natural materials, being taught to weave the most beautiful basket is a fantastic feeling. I cant believe how well I did - a lot of it is down to Joe’s being such a good teacher, extremely patient and attentive - and she has the ratio of students to teacher just right so you get all the help and guidance you need. The gallery/studio itself has a very calming, comfortable atmosphere - I felt right at home - I’m already booked onto the next Stag Head course - I can’t wait :-)

That's really kind! Thank you Jane, glad you got so much out of it, including your beautiful basket!! xxx

The shop is based in the lovely old town of Todmorden, with plenty of on street parking and places to go for lunch. This is the third course I have been to, and I have thoroughly enjoyed all of them. But the two day basket making course was fantastic. Joe is extremely patient with everyone. I now have much more of an appreciation for baskets now that I know how much work goes into each and everyone of them. I adore the basket I made and due to the hard work I put into the making of it, I know it will be part of my home for a very long time. The price may seem expensive, don't let this put you off. Yes you can but one cheaper, but it will never mean as much to you as the one you created from sticks of willow. A course to teach basketry and appreciation of an age old craft. can't wait for the next course - already booked!
