Amilee and Katie - - #33712

Booked this for a Christmas and thank you present for my sister and it was fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed the contemplative nature of weaving with willow and Joe is so knowledgeable about her craft. Todmorden and the surrounding area is so beautiful we loved it. We stayed locally and had two days of quiet, precious sister time. And made baskets we love. What could be better.

Response from Creative with Nature:

that's lovely to hear! thanks so much for the review and letting me know. joe. xxx

Willow Trophy Stag Head sculpture course at Creative with Nature Studio Todmorden West Yorkshire

In-person course
Lina - - #31076

Such a fun day out learning a new skill & relaxing , better that a day spa with a great reward to take home.
I didn’t think I could make a stag 🦌 head , well with the experienced guidance I was amazed by lunch time as the willow came to life. I know have an amazing trophy head made with love , that all my visitors are asking “where did you buy that”
I’m beaming every time I say “I made it”
Thank you and see you on the Bee 🐝 workshop

Response from Creative with Nature:

hi lina,
what a fab review thank you! lovely workshop and you did really well. see you soon. joe. xxx

Gavin Magenty - - #30925

Absolutely fantastic course from an inspired and experienced teacher. The whole experience was very well thought through, with differentiation built in depending on ability/ confidence. I felt fully supported through the whole process and came out with a fantastic looking log basket and a sense of real achievement. It has inspired me to continue my learning journey in working with willow and will no doubt return for some more training at some point.

Response from Creative with Nature:

thanks for the review Gavin! Really glad you enjoyed the weekend course. You're a natural basket weaver. xx

Leather Travelers bag 2 day course with Catherine Edwards West Yorkshire

In-person course
Linda - - #30037

Absolutely loved the 2 day bag making course. Cathy lets people go at their own pace as and when needed. She is excellent at sharing her knowledge and giving hints and tips as you go along. My relatives are really impressed with my bag and it will last for years and years. I've always been a craft person and this has opened up my world being able to use leather work techniques on different fabrics and papers.

Response from Creative with Nature:

Really glad you enjoyed your course Linda. Thanks for coming back. Xxx

Ian Armer - - #28822

I’m a big fan of Victorian stained glass and I’ve always wanted to learn how it’s created. This course, run by Laura Barnes at Joe Gregory’s willow workshop, showed us how to create a small piece, step by step and take the piece home. I loved it.

Response from Creative with Nature:

thanks so much for the the review and glad you enjoyed the day. joe. xx

Met some lovely likeminded people on the course as well . Recommended!

Very good flow, teaching style, very enjoyable. Laura is very helpful, responsive and approachable.
Only thing is, I arrived second to last, and then the last person and we didn’t know anyone’s names. Not sure if we’d missed introductions.
Thank you

Basket courses - two days with Joe Gregory at Creative with Nature Studio Todmorden West Yorkshire

In-person course
Helen Lord - - #27977

A really great course. A room of people who had never made baskets before, yet after two days we had all created something beautiful. Joe is an excellent teacher, very clear, spreading her time equally between everyone, and sharing her great depth of knowledge and enthusiasm generously. I would have considered this a bargain at twice the price.

Response from Creative with Nature:

ah thank you so much helen!! really glad you enjoyed the weekend. joe. xxx
