What a fabulous day! Thanks so much Sara and Hanna, I'd never have believed you could impart so much skill in such a short time. So thrilled with my dolphin! Add in the fantastic vegan lunch and ever flowing tea and coffee, and the sunshine, made it perfect.

Inspiring, fun, creative and welcoming course run by warm and knowledgeable ladies, Sara and Hanna. Allowing you to bring your own inspiration to the course, they'll guide you gently and help you to think outside of the box. Thank you and see you soon again.

Sara is a first class willow sculpture who imparted enough of her knowledge to help me create the flying owl that I desired.
She is very calm and a great coach.
Thank you

Response from Willowtwisters:

Thank you Peter, you were a first class student too! Your owl in flight is fantastic! Well done. Sara

A thoroughly enjoyable day. Very informative, friendly and inspiring course. Lots of individual tuition & everyone on the course was able to complete or almost finish their sculptures due to helpful suggestions on choice before the day. The rather damp, cold day didn’t stop us, though a lovely lunch did help to keep us going . Extremely pleased with my day's work - Graham the Greyhound!!
