Had a fab time constructing Daffy Duck! Family were amazed! Husband was expecting a duck billed platypus!
Daffy will be great company for Darren the Dragonfly in our courtyard garden. Can't wait for the weather to pick up so they can go out to play!!
Thanks Victoria for your patience and encouragement. I had a lovely day, good company and bonus -learnt new skills.

Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Aims were made clear, and equipment, refreshments and friendly atmosphere all provided. Plus I came away having made a willow sculpture I'm proud of! Highly recommended.

A great course and Victoria was very welcoming. The instructions were really easy to follow and everyone had a great time with the willow. My chicken is already in the garden.

Thoroughly enjoyed spending Sunday with my daughter and the other lovely ladies on this course. Thanks to Victoria and her teaching, we both came away feeling very pleased with our creations - a pheasant and chicken.
We are now thinking about Christmas and reindeers😊

Enjoyed every minute and learnt some new skills for the future. Will be looking at coming to the next Piggy Course! Duck taking pride and place in the garden.
Thanks Victoria for your patience and encouragement. Will be suggesting your courses to friends and our Study Group in the village.

Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Excellent hospitality and clear instructions with friendly individual support given as required. Ended up asking to make a pheasant as I get a lot in my garden and Victoria produced a picture to copy very quickly. Lovely to have learnt a new skill and come away with an attractive addition to the garden in a one day course.

Excellent! This course is one of the most enjoyable courses I have done in a long time. Victoria ( course leader ) is a lovely lady who instantly put everyone at ease. Her instructions and demonstrations were precise and clear and everybody came away with a willow animal to be proud of. Victoria was also a very good host providing endless cups of tea, coffee and cake. Finally, although the course ran from 10am until 3 pm, there was absolutely no rush to finish and we all ended up staying well past 4pm.
