Thank you Nicki and Brian for such a wonderful day, you made me feel so welcome, and I had such an enjoyable time making the most beautiful willow baskets. I went home feeling so inspired and with such a great sense of achievement :)

What a thoroughly enjoyable day. Nicki and her daughter Jaz were excellent tutors. Clear instructions, quick to help and really nice people. Nicki is very knowledgeable about all things willow and a great cake baker!
My husband thought perhaps I had bought the beautiful basket I brought home! Genuinely cannot believe what I achieved. Can’t wait to do another!
