Absolutely loved this course; the teachers, venue and content were brilliant.
My only complaint is that the day flew by too fast!!
I'm very tempted to book your next 'Weaving the Cosmos' course so I can do it all again.

“Thank you all round to Daniel and Annemarie O'Sullivan for weaving a most creative and productive Basket making weekend. Also, Daniel and Vija for Friday's Weaving the Cosmos: Sacred Geometry and Hexagonal Weave Basketry course. Relaxed and focused somehow, and in a studio that is such an authentic showcase of the traditional Arts.”

Thank you very much.

Thoroughly enjoyable day. Learnt loads, ended up with amazing geometric basketry. Would recommend the day to anyone who wants to experience manageable physical geometry!

A really wonderful experience. Loose your mind weaving, feel geometry with your hands.

Fascinating, frustrating and addictive!
I have thoroughly enjoyed devoting the whole day to understanding and consolidating the craft. Wonderful to take home some beautiful artefacts; ably and patiently supported by Daniel and Vija.
Thank you. Liz

This hexagonal basketry and willow 'celtic knot' course far exceeded my expectations ... Daniel and Vija were terrific teachers, so patient and knowledgeable; the incorporation of principles of sacred geometry (a core focus of this wonderful Sacred Art of Geometry studio) was fascinating. I highly recommend this course and look forward to attending further courses at SAOG Studios.
(Note: Be sure to book an 'Emerson lunch' - Delicious!!)

Maria - - #13391

Thank you for the workshop. I wonder what it was that one was so tired afterwards? I am still pondering how do use the wonderful creation. Just to look at it it has an ordering, harmonising effect. I hope to do other workshops with you at SAOG Studios.

Sue West - - #13381

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the course (Weaving the Cosmos: Sacred Geometry and the Art of Hexagonal Basketry). You made us feel very welcome, and we were instantly put at ease by relaxed ambience of your studio. Your passion for the subject was evident and was infectious even allowing for my own lack of natural ability!

Many thanks

A very inspiring course. We learnt so much; Daniel and Vija were such patient and knowledgable teachers. The handouts were also helpful. I do feel that the course could be spread out over two days to do it full justice. I must also add that the location of Sacred Art of Geometry - SAOG Studios - is idyllic. I will certainly be attending further interesting courses with you again in the near future.

Suzanne Koszyk - - #10810

I loved the day and I can't believe we managed to learn how to do three different weaves. It was very helpful to start with drawing and then see it all come to life ... it is so generous to teach us as much as you offered today.
I will highly recommend your teaching to others. It was really fantastic. Thank you so much!

Thank you so much for a truly inspiring day yesterday and for opening a new doorway into our ongoing exploration of the cosmos. It was wonderful to begin to feel the power of the sacred shapes and patterns. Your guidance throughout the day was great ...

Thank you for the workshop; it was inspiring.

In-person course
Vija - - #9214

Fantastic course! Very inspirational; Annemarie was a generous and very skilled teacher.
SAOG Studios put on an amazing array of courses - will definitely be back for more. Conveniently close to London (less than an hour's train ride) and having accommodation and meal options at the stunning and tranquil Emerson College (where SacredArtofGeometry/SAOG Studios are based) is a bonus.
