A wonderful fun course - 4 friends spending a weekend together. Although 10 on the course we went on made it harder for Kate to get around, she made it and we all have amazing willow animals to add to our gardens or house! The hospitality of coffee, lunch and tea was excellent and we were very well looked after. Our stay in the house was very comfortable and extremely clean. Delightful host who provided an excellent breakfast. Very well worth the journey. Thank you.
Response from Tresillian House:Dear Dee
I would have rated this course as good but two things let it down. The group was too large (10) and it was difficult for Kate to get round everyone.
The light lunch provided was of extremely poor quality.
Response from Tresillian House:Dear Jill
So now I have a pheasant, made with the direction and help of Kate, and it's sitting in the shade of my red maple.
A busy, full-on day, very well catered in the lovely setting of the garden at Tressillian House. I was surprised that we pretty much all managed to complete our various creatures. Great fun, and, it has to be said, quite hard work!
Response from Tresillian House:Thank you so much Sue for your kind words. I am always amazed by the wonderful creations on Kates' Willow Days and equally as impressed by how much you get done in a day! I am so glad that you enjoyed your day. The courses have proved so popular that we have added an extra date in September that still has spaces if you feel that your pheasant needs a friend! Kindest Regards Alison.
